Veteran Charitable Dental Event


Dr. Maurice A. Salama
Dr. Salama has spent the past 12 years doing these courses abroad at premier universities like UNIMES Metropolitan University in Santos, Brazil as well as the University of Sarajevo in Bosnia.
This one-of-a-kind Surgical and Implant Training hands-on course is designed to take surgeons, general practitioners, and implantologists to the next level by providing them with an opportunity to perform surgeries on LIVE patients, under the expertise and guidance of one of the top clinicians in the world, Dr. Maurice Salama along with his hand-picked expert staff.
This course will be performed under a controlled, sterile, and safe environment at one of the top state-approved dental facilities, SmileFaith Veterans Clinic in Tampa, Florida. All materials, implants, instructors, biologics, sutures etc. will be provided to you.
At SmileFaith, the goal is to provide needed care to our under-served US Veterans. These special patients are in desperate need of dental work and treatment is performed on a charitable basis to the patients.
Follow-up care to these US veterans after the surgical procedure is essential, and SmileFaith is committed to completely restoring each patient in the clinic after the course ends.
Another unique opportunity this course provides, unlike any other live surgical course, is the ability to choose which surgical procedure you wish to perform. This ranges anywhere from an All-On-X, Atraumatic Extraction with Immediate Implant Placement, Soft Tissue Augmentation, Sinus Elevation, Guided Bone Regeneration, etc. You tell us  which procedure(s) you want to excel at, and we will select the patients accordingly for that procedure to the best of our ability. Although this can not be guaranteed, every effort will be made to select appropriate cases for each attending doctor.
There is no better way to learn or perfect a surgical procedure than performing them under close supervision with experienced clinicians, on LIVE PATIENTS.
