Schedule

The tuition for the course is $8160.00. A deposit of $1030.00 is required to reserve a place in the class. Limited attendance of 10 full time students is due to our “one on one” teaching approach in both the Oral Surgery Suites and the Operating Rooms. Due to limitations in class size, we recommend early enrollment.

     We will provide a detailed schedule, travel, and lodging information after your registration is completed.

     We look forward to your participation in this learning experience.
