Continuing Dental Education
Contemporary health professions are marked by constant technological changes, innovations in health care delivery, new clinical procedures and an ever-increasing social awareness.
Such changes have accentuated the need for the professional to remain abreast of new developments by accepting the fundamental and lifelong responsibility for continuous study.
As a part of its obligation to the practicing profession, the Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry vigorously supports continuing dental education and offers a full range of programs.
Lectures, seminars and electronic distance learning about topics of current interest to dentists and dental auxiliaries are taught by TAMHSC-BCD faculty and other respected professionals.
ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry.

The mission of the Department of Continuing Education, Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry is to promote the most advanced continuing education curriculum for all dental professionals, enabling them to achieve elevated levels of knowledge and competency and to promote public safety with the highest standard of care and service to their patients and community.

1. Implant Surgical Placement and Tissue Grafting WorkshopDr. Thomas Wilson
This is really one of the best courses that we do. And the reasons are very simple. We walk in and we say to the participants, "What do you want to learn?" And then we teach it to them.
I have the privilege of teaching with Jim Ruskin, who is a fantastic oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and has a completely different range of understanding than I do. So the participants will get both his approach from an OMS standpoint, and my approach as a periodontist.
It's really a nice course.
2. Advanced Surgical Implant Procedures and PlacementDr. Higginbottom
The course in November was an entry level course where we labeled it straightforward. Mainly we were doing on single implants, multiple implants in one quadrant, and then for the removable patient , over-dentures with usually two or four locator attachments.Dr. Woody
Well we have basically 2 courses: the one on Friday, and one on Saturday, the 15th and 16th.
The 15th is a surgery course. Dr. Wilson and myself are the primary ones in that course, which is an advanced course dealing more with anterior esthetics, critical anterior placements.Dr. Higginbottom
The Saturday course will involve advanced to complex graded classifications, which are going to be multiple implant restorations, screw retains, custom abutments, anterior esthetic restorations, and then full mouth rehabilitations on multiple implants.Dr. Woody
For me it's been just a wonderful experience, because you have people that are top of their field in surgery -- Dr. Wilson being a periodontist, Dr. Higginbottom, top in his area restorative-wise, and myself with the prosthodontic perspective. That we really I think that we really feed on each other's best areas and best efforts. So it is an extremely synergistic area and I'm just so fortunate to be a part of it.
Baylor is a really renowned center for continuing education, and a nice place for people to come. We have people come from all over the United States -- one flight from anywhere to Dallas, or you can drive in. So it's a wonderful educational facility.
