University based programs in the form of 2 to 4 year training leading to specialties in Oral Maxillofacial Surgery, Prosthodontics, Periodontics, and Masters in Implantology.
Accredited implant programs supported by recognized academies (such as the AO, AAID, ICOI, AAIP) leading to Fellowships and Masterships. These Maxi-courses cover essential didactic material but limited in hands-on patients.
Short training courses consulting of weekend courses created by implant manufactures with the purpose of familiarizing interested dentists in the use of the systems. Limited training with hands-on saw dust models, pig jaws and/or cadavers.
Dr. Mongalo has been conducting university based surgical training as well as accredited maxi-courses for the past two decades. Dr. Mongalo recognized that most dentists did not feel completely comfortable introducing the information learned in didactic courses. Truly there’s a gap between theory and clinical reality. This led to the creation of Live Implant Training courses where patients were introduced as essential components needed to bridge the clinical gap.
To ensure patients safety, two crucial points must be followed:
All surgeries must be directly supervised (step by step) by USA board certified Oral Maxillofacial surgerons and Implant Masters.
Clinical cases must match the dentists level of surgical skills and experience. Novice clinicians must learn the abc’s and operate on the basic cases while Experienced and Advanced doctors are allowed to perform complex surgeries.
Dr. Mongalo’s journey has led him to direct fifteen live courses in Nicaragua, from 2008-2010. Due to political instability in the country he was forced to move the operation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. In the years 2010-2012 another fifteen courses were completed successfully. Unfortunately the safety of our students created the need for a new venture. In 2013 Dr. Mongalo moved his institute to the Dominican Republic where political stability, safety of the country, along with sunny weather year round has made it phenomenal site for teaching these courses.
We are approaching 2014, after 35 consecutive sold out courses, over 600 dentists trained world wide from five continents, 10,000 implants donated to underserved populations, 850 sinus elevations performed. We learn from all previous courses, this allows us to improve our institute, the manner in which we teach live surgeries and ultimately our goal is to create a phenomenal surgical experience.
