Course Objective
This two day course is designed to expose the clinicians to the advanced surgical and orthodontic aspects of the Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics™ (AOO) technique and to the unique manner in which these must be coordinated to maximize the potential of this technique. Upon completion the clinician should be able to utilize the new diagnostic parameters needed to treatment plan the various orthodontic classifications and properly design the surgical aspects needed to support the orthodontic objectives. Attendees receive 16 CE credits (AGD).
Testimonials From Former Course Attendees:
“As a Periodontist, I work with a number of Orthodontic colleagues who utilize AOO™ as a vital treatment option for their patients. AOO™ not only accelerates the movement of teeth but the bone regenerated allows for better and more stable orthodontic results. After performing the surgery for AOO™ on hundreds of patients, I can vouch for the safety and efficacy of this procedure.”
– Dr. Charles A. White, Periodontist, Bentonville, Arkansas

“We took the Wilckodontics Course for the first time in June 2012. After two days of intensive lectures we could get an in depth knowledge of Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics that enabled us to successfully treat our patients back at home straight away. The technique proved to be simple and cost effective. The results are just amazing and we quickly became renowned for providing fast and high quality orthodontics. This course proved to be a milestone in our professional lives and now that we look back, we just don´t see ourselves without PAOO in our daily practice.
Taking the Wilckodontics Course has probably been the best decision we have made in our entire professional lives. We strongly recommend it!”
– Dr. Francisco Muñoz DDS, Oral & Surgeon, Santiago, Chile
– Dr. Silvana Palacios DDS, Orthodontist, Surgeon, Santiago, Chile

Most clinicians believe that a comprehensive, didactic course of study followed by live clinical experiences are the gold standard in implant training. Over the past ten years our program has evolved to provide what our students describe as a career changing professional experience. We know of no other course that offers all the crucial elements and flexibility necessary to best prepare you for success in placement of dental implants:

  • A concisely presented course of study guided by a core faculty to help you navigate the complexities involved and weigh the indications and advantages of the various techniques.
  • Seven three-day sessions spread over seven months provide participants ample opportunity to learn and apply new techniques. Implant dentistry is not learned in a weekend or a week. It is an evolution of your skills that you hone during a serious course of study.
  • Colleagues develop actual cases from their own practices, beginning with diagnosis and treatment planning, proceeding through surgical guide fabrication and 3-D analysis, and culminating in implant placement.
  • Live surgeries presented at each Friday session followed by discussion of the science and techniques that inform the surgeries.
  • All surgeries are videotaped and provided to every student. We believe that viewing instructional videos just prior to performing surgery improves outcomes.
  • Saturday and Sunday sessions featuring the world’s premier implant educators are designed to reinforce the concepts presented in the live surgeries. Through case presentations in a group participation atmosphere, we teach surgical implant placement and associated bone and tissue grafting techniques with the goal of redefining effective treatment planning.
  • Twenty plus hours of hands-on workshops to develop these skills on dental models and pig jaws.
  • Mentored surgeries to close the loop and develop your skills on real patients
Team Training

Since a successful implant practice depends on involvement of the entire office our October session provides an opportunity for your team members to be certified as ICOI Dental Implant Assistants. The goals for this session include integrating implant surgery into your existing practice and providing staff with the skills and knowledge necessary to assist in placing implants. Together, teams will attend live surgeries and attend lectures on case presentation, office organization, and implant maintenance. In special break out sessions, team members will learn how to set up and maintain equipment and surgical operatories, surgically assist for implant placement, bone and tissue grafting, and fabricate models and guides specific to implant placement.


All lectures and laboratory sessions are in our state of the art facility located just minutes from RDU airport. In addition to implants we are universally recognized for our amazing chef!

Mentored Surgery Experience

We find that clinicians present with varied personalities and surgical backgrounds that dictate the degree of live surgical experience they find useful. We will provide the patients and a trained surgical assistant to mentor your assistant for implant placement, bone grafting, and tissue grafting. You will have the opportunity to follow up these patients post-operatively and review and consult with the faculty relative to improving your technique. The testing of your skills followed by immediate evaluation and feedback has been proven as the best learning strategy. If you prefer, you can bring one of your own patients and arrange for them to pay the fee. For our course participants we charge 70% of our normal case fee to cover the overhead and implant costs allowing you to dial in the right amount of surgical experience for your needs.


“The mentored surgery was incredible! Thanks to all the staff and faculty for making it our best learning experience ever! Exposing the mental foramina and placing four mandibular implants—priceless”
– Jill Merrill, DDS and David Merrill, DDS, Weaverville, NC

“I hear too many stories about dentists who invest time and money into implant education and never actually place implants. This is not the case at the Triangle Dental Institute. I took the course, and now I’m placing implants — and so are my classmates.”
– David Collins, DDS, Denver, CO

“This course completely changed the way I practice dentistry. Knowing the intricacies of bone and tissue grafting and implant placement has helped me to make more informed diagnoses and treatment plans. It feels good to know that my patients are receiving the best, most up-to-date care available. My daughter, who practices with me, will take the course next year.”
– Thomas Rider, DDS, Hickory, NC

“Thinking Outside the Palate”
Learning to treat recession with acellular dermis grafting can be a valuable addition to your practice skill set!

This surgical technique is simpler and faster than difficult, tedious TUNNELING AND PIN-HOLE techniques. Most soft tissue grafting for recession can now be donewithout any palate surgery. Acellular dermis is as effective as connective tissue or free gingival grafts when used with a simplified technique that eliminates tedious tunneling.

Acellular dermis is an effective barrier membrane when used in socket management for guided bone regeneration. This sets the stage for rapid bone graft maturation and accurate implant placement. Acellular dermis generates new, wider attachment and keratinized gingiva around implants. Acellular dermis can be used to cover cervical caries lesions, avoiding class V restorations. Platelet-rich growth factors and Emdogain accelerate soft tissue healing, and will increase keratinized tissue plus predictable root surface reattachment.
