THE VANCOUVER MAXICOURSE 

Connecting dentists with the most comprehensive and foundational dental implant training, led by the most experienced team of oral implantologists in the Pacific Northwest. 

The Vancouver MaxiCourse® is a structured program consisting of 30 days of education over ten months. The program has been designed to impart the understanding of diagnostic and treatment modalities necessary to properly treat patients who are candidates for dental implant therapy. 

The 300-hour interdisciplinary approach utilizes a systematic buildup of didactic material, laboratory exercises, surgical demonstrations, clinical participation, and surgeries on your own patients. All surgeries are mentored and supervised by AAID board-certified faculty members in the UBC Faculty of Dentistry grad specialty clinic. At the completion of the program, each participant will be eligible to challenge the written component of the AAID Fellowship exam. This is optional and a personal choice.
