Howard County Dental Association is pleased to offer the following continuing education course:  

October 8, 2020,
6:30 p.m.
Digital Workflow
for Restorative-Driven Implants
2 CE credits - AGD 690 Implants
Sanju Jose, DDS, MDS
Course Description:

Surgical treatment planning protocols keep advancing, allowing both surgeons and restorative doctors to begin with the end in mind. Utilizing CBCT and intra-oral scanning, new possibilities are available to create digital wax-ups of the final prosthesis, prior to fabricating a surgical guide that will then allow implants to be positioned to ideally support this prosthesis. Dynamic navigated implant surgery allows digital wax-ups and implant positions to be created and planned within the patient’s CBCT and intra-oral scan, allowing for real-time navigated surgery without utilizing a surgical guide. Both these unique processes allow for comprehensive treatment planning and execution, and can be used from single implant cases to full-mouth reconstruction. Moreover, these processes also allow for immediate temporization, immediate loading, and tissue training via customized healing abutments.

Course Objectives:

At the completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  1. Review use of conventional surgical guides, and their cons/pros.

  2. Discuss digital workflow as it relates to implant dentistry.

  3. Discuss team-approach in diagnosing, treatment planning, and executing cases utilizing a digital workflow.

  4. Discuss guided surgery and dynamic navigated surgery, and their cons/pros.

  5. Discuss custom healing abutments, immediate provisionals, conventional immediate loading, and immediate loading utilizing a stacked guide system for full-arch treatment.

Speaker Description:


After graduating from Parkville High School in Baltimore County, Dr. Sanju Jose attended University of Maryland Baltimore County, majoring in Biology. He then went on to obtain his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from University of Maryland School of Dentistry. Prior to committing to the specialty of periodontics, he completed a general practice residency at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, NY, where he was exposed to a variety of patient populations and cases in the background of a Level 1 Trauma Center. From there, he went on to complete his post-graduate training in periodontics and dental implants at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, one of the leading research universities in the United States. While there, Dr. Jose dedicated part of his time to research, working with various bone grafting materials to help in regeneration.


University of Pittsburgh is one of the few dental schools in the country that have an ADA accredited dental anesthesiology program, and during his time there, Dr. Jose received training in the administration of IV sedation under the mentorship of the dental anesthesiology department. He also became especially skillful in treating patients that needed full-mouth rehabilitation using dental implants. Dr. Jose believes in continuing education and offering his patients the most advanced evidence-based treatment options. With this in mind, he has taken additional courses to become well-versed in computer-guided surgery, immediate implant placement with immediate temporaries, Chao Pinhole Technique, minimally invasive bone grafting techniques, and socket shield/partial extraction therapies.


Dr. Jose comes back home to Columbia, Maryland after working in Virginia for a year. He is active in dental associations and has served as a delegate for the Virginia Dental Association House of Delegates. Additionally, he participates in several study clubs including the Spear Study Club. He is happily married to his wife, Belda, since 2014, and they recently welcomed their first child. In his free time outside of work, he enjoys playing basketball and traveling with his family.
