TeethXpress is a comprehensive full-arch protocol and business program combining advanced dental implant technologies with practice tools to increase patient acceptance for full arch immediate load therapy.
This comprehensive two-day course with live surgical and restorative demonstration will train the team (surgeon, restorative dentist and lab technician) on full arch conversions with a special focus on patient identification, case acceptance and business development strategies. Attendees who become Certified TeethXpress Providers will get added to the exclusive TeethXpress provider network and receive full access to the CaseXpress® armamentarium of practice development tools.
For best results, it is strongly recommended that surgical specialists, referring dental colleagues and a preferred dental laboratory technician attend as a team. Surgeons are expected to have intermediate to advanced experience in dental implant surgery.
Participants will observe a live surgery with instruction on bone reduction techniques and implant placement, followed by an immediate load conversion of a full-arch provisional prosthesis.
A surgical and restorative hands-on model based workshop will give each team the opportunity to place implants and perform a "chair-side" provisional denture conversion.

"After attending the TeethXpress course with a group of my referrals, they are pumped about full arch. One has already sent me a consult she saw on Monday after the course. Another said that she has new excitement and passion for dentistry as a result of the course."
"The live surgical portion was fantastic. I really enjoyed going through this course with two of my referring dentists."
"This course truly opened my eyes and prompted me to start thinking about all the "internal" patients I can start offering TeethXpress full arch treatment to."
"One of the best weekends of CE ever! Really well done."
"Awesome! By far the best course on this topic."
"The TeethXpress course was a terrific experience in all aspects. I feel much more confident and excited about this type of procedure after attending the class in Birmingham. We are now ready to make this work for our practice"
Clinical Training • Marketing Training • Laboratory Training
When proven clinical techniques are applied, immediate occlusal loading has a documented success rate of over 95 percent.1 In this course, we will demonstrate:
While many clinicians are well trained in full arch reconstruction, the greater challenge is often understanding how to attract and influence ideal candidates for this procedure. In this course, we will demonstrate:
The TeethXpress treatment planning methodology incorporates the laboratory throughout the process, with special focus on the immediate conversion. Laboratories wishing to become proficient and efficient in full arch immediate load will learn:
