Surgical Session 5 – Soft Tissue
Las Vegas | 03/02/2018- 03/03/2018 | $3,750 Per course
This program was developed by Dr. Misch and his faculty to provide the specialist and the general dentist an opportunity that combines lecture and a hands-on opportunity. The 2 days of lecture will focus on turning challenges into successful solutions for the soft tissue around teeth and dental implants.
