AAID MaxiCourses ByAAID The American Academy of Implant Dentistry founded in 1951 is the first professional organization in the world dedicated to Implant Den- tistry. Its members include general dentists, Oral and Maxillofacial Sur- geons, Periodontists, Prosthodon- tists, and others interested in the field of Implant Dentistry. The Acad- emycontinuestoexpandtheoppor- tunities for dentists to obtain com- prehensive, non-biased curriculum ofqualityeducationtopreparethem for including implantology in their scope of practice. The recent launch- ing of the MaxiCourse Japan after approval brings to 11 the number of MaxiCourses offered around the world. The First Annual AAID Maxi- Course in UAE was offered in 2009 inAbuDhabiandtodate196doctors –Consultants,Specialistsandgeneral dental practitioners have graduated from the Program. Currently the UAE Program is in its Eighth Year. The Program consists of 5 modules and each Module is of 6 days with a didactic and Clinical Component with in depth review of surgical and prosthetic protocols based on scien- tific and evidence based practice. It is a non commercial, non sponsored course covering a wide spectrum of implant types and system. The Eighth Annual Program was accred- ited by the Health Authority of Abu Dhabifor269.25CMEhours. MaxiCourses are the preferred means for a doctor to obtain com- prehensive foundation in Implant Dentistry says Dr. Rod Stewart, Chair of AAID’s MaxiCourse subcommit- tee of the Academy’s Education Oversight Committee during his recent visit to the UAE as one of the speakers of Module 5 of the Maxi- Course in Abu Dhabi. The Faculty of the Program, all credentialed by the American Board include Drs. ShankarIyer(CourseDirector),Jaime Lozada, Robert Miller, Alfred Duke Heller, Hilt Tatum, William Locante, Natalie Wong, Stuart Otten Jones, Irfan Kanchwala, Mathew Kattadi- yil, Frank LaMar, Robert Schroering, Amit Vohra, said Dr.Ninette Banday whoistheco-DirectoroftheProgram in the UAE and also an instructor in the Program. These Top Speakers discuss a broad range of interesting topics that all experience levels can benefit with scientific support. The Program moves from the basics to the advanced level and so in Module 1 all participants review the Anato- my, basic suturing skills, flap designs along with placing implants on ar- tificial jaws. This prepares them for andsetsthebasis for thesubsequent clinical sessions where the partici- pants work under direct supervision of the instructors on patients. The Ninth batch scheduled to start from August 30th 2016 will allow the par- ticipants to place 10 implants as part of the Program. The participants therefore get an opportunity for discussion of actual problems and to find solutions which they can ap- ply in their clinical practices. Adding the supervised Clinical sessions both surgical and restorative has further elevated the level of the Program. All the expertise developed in turn ben- efits’thepatientsthedentistsserves. The Program fullfills the educa- tional requirements for the Exami- nationforAssociateFellowMember- ship Examination for the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. In several parts of the world the Associ- ate Fellowship or Fellowship of the AAID is an acknowledged credential that represents quality training in Implantology and skills in the Art and Science of Implant Dentistry.
