Charles Goodacre Small

"Maintaining a high level of competence in dentistry requires knowledge and experience related to the clinical procedures and materials used in today’s practice. The single implant certificate program offers the opportunity for dentists to learn the most pertinent scientific information related to single implants and their restorations and document that knowledge by completing a written examination."

Dr. Charles Goodacre, Member of the FOR Board of Trustees, Co-Chair of the FOR Education Council

Jay Malmquist

"The single implant certificate program is based on a comprehensive eBook covering single implants and their restoration. The examination allows participants to validate their knowledge of the science and clinical procedures that form the foundation for treating patients who will benefit from single implants to replace missing teeth."
