Institute for Implant & Reconstructive Dentistry (IIRD™) Opens to Serve Dental Professionals Worldwide

State-of-the-Art Facility and Leading-Edge Technology Enable Oral Health-Care Providers to Learn and Share Latest Advances in Implant, Regenerative, and Digital Dentistry

Palm Beach Gardens, FL – (November 16, 2011) – Dental professionals worldwide can hone their skills, learn about the latest techniques, and share information – online or on location – through the new Institute for Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry (IIRD™). The state-of-the-art facility opens on November 16, 2011 at the South Florida campus of BIOMET 3i, a global leader in dental implants, abutments, and regenerative oral health-care products.

Education and knowledge sharing of evidence-based dentistry using leading-edge technology is at the heart of IIRD™. World-renowned leaders in the fields of implant and reconstructive dentistry comprise the faculty and guest-speaker panel. The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art dental and educational technology to maximize experiential learning through live surgeries, tele-surgeries, handson training, educational programs, lectures, and information sharing. The IIRD™ also will conduct online educational programs, including lecture series, university partnership programs, and industry events and meetings.

"The Institute for Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry is designed to serve dental professionals as a trusted educational partner. However, we go beyond providing "continuing education‟ courses," explains Anthony Singleton, BIOMET 3i Global Director, the Institute for Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry. "Regardless of their experience level, dental professionals will be able to fine-tune their skills, build their confidence with the latest dental technology and, perhaps, be challenged by new perspectives on patient care. All this can lead to growing their practices and enhancing patient outcomes."

The IIRD™ is the culmination of the vision of BIOMET 3i co-founder Richard J. Lazzara, DMD, MScD, who passionately believes education, evidence-based research, and leading-edge dental techniques are essential to providing the best dental solutions and care to patients. Dr. Lazzara is one of many world-class dental professionals who will serve as faculty of the Institute. Subject matter ranging from treatment-planning advances in digital dentistry, implant dentistry innovations, implant restoration, CTguided surgery, treatment planning, and advanced diagnostics and complex case management provide a comprehensive education continuum for all levels of dental specialists and clinicians. Programs are continuously added and can be found by visiting

In additional to information about course offerings and online registration, the IIRD™ website allows visitors to take a virtual tour of the facility. Insightful articles and research, videos and interviews are also included on the website, along with links to the Journal of Implant & Reconstructive Dentistry®(JIRD®), the official publication of the IIRD™.
