Illinois Startup, ImplantWide, LLC Promises to Revolutionize Dental Implant Placement For General Dentists

Share Article

There are several obstacles that can discourage general dentists from integrating implant placement into their practices. Chief among these are time and money.

ImplantWide Dental Implant Training Surgicenter
Other dental implant training centers require a huge upfront investment, and then the dentist must also invest in costly equipment and inventory. That's simply not the case with ImplantWide.

Lacking the proper resources, and an understanding of how and when to properly invest in the necessary resources, the road to complete implant dentistry can be fraught with hazard.

An Illinois start-up is out to change all that.

ImplantWide™ is an implant training surgicenter which, according to its website “provides quality continuing education in an open and mentoring environment for general dentists for the placement and restoration of dental implants.”

"What makes the ImplantWide concept truly revolutionary is that the only costs the Partner Dentist incurs are variable," says Daniel A. Bobrow of AIM Dental Marketing, ImplantWides marketing director. "Other dental implant training centers require a huge upfront investment, and then the dentist must also invest in costly equipment and inventory. That's simply not the case with ImplantWide," concludes Bobrow.

ImplantWide has opened its first location in Schaumburg, Ill., not far from O’Hare International Airport, and is offering four different ways for dentists and team members to acquire the skills that are necessary to confidently place implants.

Scan only – The patient is scanned, then the scan is returned to the 'Partner Dentist' to interpret and prepare the treatment plan..

Scan and report – utilizing their best in class analysis treatment presentation protocol, ImplantWide scans the patient and shares a comprehensive treatment recommendation with the Partner Dentist on how best to place the implant.

Team Approach – The dentist works with an ImplantWide surgeon to perform the implant procedure. The Partner Dentist then bills his or her patient whatever he/she wants and keeps the difference.

Solo Approach - When the Partner Dentist is sufficiently competent and confident, he/she uses the surgicenter and simply pays a modest facility fee, as well as for any implants that are used (unless the Partner Dentist bring his/her own implants, in which case there is no extra cost - this is termed their 'no corkage fee' policy).

Whichever approach is chosen, Partner Dentists earn AGD Pace CE for every hour they are at the Facility.

"The idea occurred to me in speaking with an orthopedic surgeon," says ImplantWide Founder James Chapko, DDS. Surgeons never tell their patient to 'meet me at my office for your knee replacement.' Instead, the patient meets the surgeon at a hospital or surgicenter where the surgeon has privileges. It's the same with ImplantWide, except that the Partner Dentist need not know how to actually place the dental implant. Simply being present and willing to participate and learn means as a Partner Dentist you earn while you learn."

ImplantWide plans, following its successful Illinois launch, to expand throughout the nation.
