Bucks County Mini-Residency Program

We are committed to providing the highest quality of care for our patients and it is through continuing education that we can stay on top of the latest developments. We provide a variety of educational opportunities for our referring offices through the Bucks County Mini-Residency Program.

The primary emphasis of the study group is to provide the best in continuing education in Implant and Periodontal Dentistry. The Mini-Residency Program has been a forum for the introduction of state-of-the-art techniques and important updates on current methods.

The Mini-Residency Program is an accredited continuing education program for dental professionals including dentists, dental hygienists, assistants, administrative staff, and laboratory technicians. It was founded and is directed by Dr. Edward Marcus.

The Mini-Residency Program is a study group consisting of a select group of outstanding dentists and dental specialists who join together in the pursuit of higher learning. Their goal is to keep their professional community in the forefront of dental technology while assuring their patients the most up-to-date treatment available.

In addition to education, the program focuses on building relationships with our members and their offices. These relationships improve treatment coordination between offices to make the patient education and treatment process the most effective.

The program generally consists of six sessions, beginning in October and concluding in May.

2023-2024 Program

In this our thirty second year, the program kicks off with Dr. Bruno Azevado presenting: “Advanced CBCT Imaging in Dentistry”. Dr. Azevado, a board certified oral and maxillofacial radiologist who has lectured all over the world, is the premier expert on 3D imaging. He will help us on how to best interpret CT images. This technology has become the standard in more and more dental offices and we need to stay current. Two treatment planning sessions are scheduled which include new information from the current literature and national meetings. All members are asked to participate by reporting on an interesting article, technique, new material, or lecture they have reviewed/attended. The annual doctor-hygienist-staff meeting hosts yours truly again (last time five years ago) presenting “Update on Mucogingival Conditions” an always welcomed and needed update. For the all day meeting, Dr. Brent Ludens, A highly experienced prosthodontist will present: “Comprehensive Prosthetic Soft Tissue Management”. Dr. Ludens will cover non-surgical soft tissue management along with ways to avoid complications in restoring dental implants and the biomechanics of the bone:implant:abutment:restorative complex. We end the year’s program with our traditional meeting on “Failures”, where we all learn from things that went awry and share interesting office experiences.

Please call the office for total cost or per course tuition. As always, if you have never attended one of our meetings, you are invited to attend the kickoff meeting as our guest at no charge.
