As Scientific Director of the IAPEM School of Aesthetic Medicine and Dentistry, which is in its 10th year of activity, I am honored to present the most recent educational proposal that IAPEM organizes and presents in one of its two primary training areas: Dentistry.
It is obvious how the smile is at the forefront of beauty and the dentist is the protagonist. We have already had occasion to recall the important role of IAPEM in supporting this specificity and its absolute professional lawfulness.
With my extensive collaborations in Italy and abroad, these permit me to propose a Master’s degree in Implantology through two important “bases”: the Accademia di Storia dell’Arte Sanitaria (Academy of History of Healthcare Art) in Rome, which will host a School from Milan in its ancient and prestigious Roman headquarters and the Ananya Shirakatsi University of Yerevan in Armenia, which requested and shared our educational program in the field of Body Aesthetics.
Certainly it would not have been possible to reach this milestone in Implantology training has we not had the fortune to meet Silvano Tramonte a few years ago, with whom we both personally took mutual sympathy and esteem beginning from an awareness that the first thing to learn or re-learn is Medical Ethics. From here, on one hand the four logos that characterize this Master, and on the other hand undoubtedly the strong role of the Tramonte Science Society that will guide the theoretical teaching and the hands-on practice guided by other eminent experts of other implantology schools, in absolute respect of multiple points of view and experiences in the field.
The following are some highlights of the rationale developed:
- The International Master in Global Implantology is the first and only among the training courses, not only Italian but also international, to address and treat implantology as a global specialty that takes into consideration all of the proven, valid and effective techniques developed over time.
- The Master stems from the desire to make use of the clinical and scientific experience of all those professionals who, starting from the 1960s and before the advent of biphasic implantology, practiced monophasic endosseous implantology and juxtaoxea for almost thirty years giving a very important contribution to world implantology with techniques and tools that preserve effectiveness and topicality. We now have the ambition to offer the most complete panorama possible of all implant techniques that have demonstrated their effectiveness and functional durability over time from monophasic to biphasic, from subperiosteal to zygomatic.
- This Master wants to make available to today’s implantologist all the techniques and therapeutic possibilities aimed at offering each patient the most suitable treatment for his/her case. Recovering the principle of customization of the therapy, which must be as specific as possible, consistent and compliant with the need for maximum optimization of the individual therapeutic plan which, as it is known, is effectively assisted by aesthetic medicine procedures. The theme of Aesthetic Medicine will in fact have ample space within the teaching and practice of the Master.
- Last but not least, all of the participants of the Master in Global Implantology will obtain an International Post-Graduate Certificate upon course completion.
