FAQ About Our Implantology Courses

Trinon Collegium Practicum organizes the Q-Implant Marathon – a 5 day hands-on practical course focusing on implantology. All course sessions are live surgery participation under supervision.

Since it began, the courses have gained global recognition, with more than 150 sessions organized. Under the motto, “Learning by Doing”, these courses have led to the placement of over 100,000 implants, helping over 25,000 patients.

Trinon courses are conducted by experienced international and domestic surgeons providing advice and assistance as participants perform difficult surgeries, from basic sinus elevations to complicated grafting cases.

There are 3 skill levels available in which participants, grouped in pairs, can expect to undergo 60+ hours of practical surgery to gain experience and apply learned theoretical concepts on implantology.

Level 1: Implant Placement

Participants are guaranteed to perform 30 Implants in 5 days, with cases ranging from Standard to Moderately-complicated, all supervised and assisted by experienced implantologists, thereby providing practical experience.

Level 2: Sinus Elevations

Participants are guaranteed to perform 5 Sinus Lifts in 5 days under the supervision and assistance of experienced instructors. Apart from this, various techniques and procedures such as Bone Augmentation and Effective Management of Complications due to Implant Surgery will also be discussed.

Level 3: Demanding Cases

Participants are required to treat a number of demanding cases at this level. These include those involving Highly Atrophic Bone, Comprehensive Bone Augmentation, using Titanium Mesh, to name a few.

Continuing education focused on Dental Implantology has been theoretical at most. From an educational viewpoint, the subject is not given much attention and as such, specializing in this area can prove to be a time consuming endeavor. Further complicating this is the fact that most programs on implantology rarely provide participants with practical experience by working directly on patients, leaving them unable to cope with real life situations

Trinon Collegium Practicum (TCP) challenges this by offering engaging practice-oriented courses such as the Q-Implant Marathon, accredited by the General Academy of Dentistry who approved and provided that upon completion of said course, all participants are entitled to receive 60 Continuing Education Hours.

The Q-Implant Marathon sessions are held in:

1.Dominican Republic
3. Laos

Each location holds 4-8 sessions a year. For more information regarding the dates and specific locations, please contact us at Implantology Courses.

Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo

For those living in the USA, we recommend attending the sessions held at Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

These run for about 10-12 hours/day and at the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate indicating the number of performed implants/operations performed. In addition, they receive 60 continuing education hours from the Academy of General Dentistry.

Sessions are currently being limited to smaller groups. The number of participants depends on the date/session/location, and the number of op-booths available (10 op-booths = 20 participants working in teams of 2).

An international of team varying nationalities, all fluent in English, and possess the required experience, knowledge and skills best suited to teach the course compose our team. With each one having numerous accolades and success in their field of work, we make sure those who do the job know the job, and are excellent at it.

The Q-Implant Marathon is the only course in the world that guarantees attendees a guaranteed number of live surgeries, specifically:

-As the LEAD, 30 implants in 5 days
-ASSISTING another 30 implants performed by their partner

Yes, provided you completed a minimum of 50 Implant Cases in the last 2 years. This is a must since Level 2 Cases are more advanced in nature.

One should be equipped with the necessary basic surgical skills such as Incision and Suture. Basic knowledge of Implantology and theories on it are expected, as well. Moreover, participants should familiarize themselves with the Q-Method, including the time period allotment the course requires to avoid conflicts in schedule.

We will provide basic surgical equipment to the participants. However, we advise participants who prefer specific brands (or equipment such as loupes), to bring their own for personal use.

Finally, one (1) set of scrubs for each participant shall be provided so it is recommended that participants bring extra sets in case something unexpected occurs

All work performed during the course is on local patients and all surgery is free of charge  for the patients. The operations are all performed with the highest quality care and concern for the welfare of the patient.

Regular follow-ups are provided by our team, clinic, or staff at the university.

The first Q-Implant Marathon was held in Santa Clara, Cuba in December of 2003. The core principles of this course stemmed from the belief that doctors should have the opportunity to quickly gain in-depth experience in implantology through direct patient interaction. Trinon Collegium Practicum founders understood that there was a lack of practical educational seminars for doctors who wished to become proficient in the placement of implants.

Since then, we have organized more than 150 courses across three nations, with over 3,000 dentists trained and given first hand practical experience on Implantology Surgery. This has yielded some 100,000+ implants placed on patients from the local areas.

What our Course Participants Say


I was very impressed with this course and the instructors. I learned more in this course than all of the other implant courses I have taken combined. After this course, I will feel very confident with most implant cases and situations. The patients were great and are very well taken care of by the local dentists and physicians. I will definitely be back for the advanced courses.

Dr. Nick H.

The hands-on approach of this course and the instructors make the clinical knowledge gained invaluable. By the end of the course, my confidence not only in implant placement, but also in surgical procedures, was greatly improved. I would definitely recommend this experience to any dentist.

Dr. Ramon H.

I had always referred out implants even though patients asked if I could do it. In the end, they would never go to the specialist and just find another GP that did implants. I’m excited to go back and start placing implants right away, patients want to stay with one dentist and now I am confidence and ready to place implants for them.

Dr. Wesley N.

Prior to coming to this course, I had only theoretical/didactic knowledge in implantology. You gain immense knowledge in placement, treatment planning and surgical skills. As a beginner, I would highly recommend taking this course to advance your career.

Dr. Amar P.

Really enjoyed this course. I feel confident in placing implants after finishing the course. Instructors are great and really helpful. Would definitely recommend this course if you are thinking about offering implants to your patients.

Dr. Farah J.

Great course for getting the courage up to place implants in a variety of patients. Thirty implants in 5 days- very fast paced but a great confidence builder!

Dr. Sarah M.

I loved it! Tons of practical knowledge, very knowledgeable and friendly instructors and administrative staff. Everything was handled in a very professional and helpful way. Perfect way to improve your skills, meet new friends, get lots of advice with dental problems and complications. Now I feel confident and I will start placing implants in my practice.

Dr. Justyna B.

This course is a truly hands on experience and plenty of it. The patients, instructors and accommodations are nice. The course is well organized. Thank you Dominika and Mac!

Dr. Thomas P.

I have already taken a comprehensive implant course and placed a few implants before coming to this course. This hands-on course definitely boosted my confidence level greatly in placing implants. The instructors were all great and knowledgeable. Thanks again!

Dr. Janet C

Incredible course! I’ve never been to a CE course that has given me so much experience and knowledge as this course has. Worth every penny!

Dr. Kent C.

Having taken 2 previous implant continuum courses and 12 years of implant experience, I found the hands-on level 2 course invaluable. The learning environment was supportive and the training and feedback with total hands-on instruction was the one thing my previous training lacked. I highly recommend this course to any dentist interested in placing implants and sinus lifts. I am completely confident of my skills that I acquired and am excited to implement sinus augmentation in my practice.

Dr. Kathy D.

This course was amazing! From the moment we entered the clinic, our patients were ready to go! I placed 2 implants in the first hour. I began the course with limited experience and confidence and finished ready to place implants on Monday with total confidence!
