In addition to discussing the latest services, materials and techniques, the participant will gain a better understanding of the impact that the newest technologies have, not only on our patients, but also among the entire dental team and overall dental practice.

Attendees will learn:

  • Soft and hard tissues assessment and availability.
  • Implant placement for optimum esthetics “Pink Collar”.
  • Awareness for new innovations in digital dentistry.
  • Laser and electro-surgery for soft tissue procedures in restorative dentistry.
  • Impression material and soft tissue manipulation in implant dentistry.
  • How to work smart. Work less.
  • Fundamentals of inflammation: the mouth and body connection for optimum overall health and dental wellness.




Dr. Bilski is the clinical co-director at the Midwest Implant Institute, Columbus, Ohio, where he instructs doctors in cosmetic and dental implant concepts related to esthetics and restoring anterior teeth in a “hands on” format. He received his dental implantology fellowship from the Midwest Implant Institute in 2010 and completed his externship program in 1992. Dr. Bilski has been helping dentists implement surgical implant procedures into to their general dental practices, and to recognize the opportunities that implant dentistry presents to a practice, including practice growth and return on investment as new technology and training are integrated in the dental office.

Dr. Bilski has authored many books on the topics of removable restorations in implant dentistry, digital work flow in restorative dentistry, smile design, custom designs for esthetic implant procedures, safe Botox procedures for dentistry, cone beam technology (in sleep apnea, TMJ/Migraine therapy, endodontics and implant dentistry treatment planning). He has also contributed articles that have appeared in peer-reviewed professional journals and has done extensive webinars covering topics such as C02 lasers for soft tissue management, restoration of zirconia implants, opiate prescription guidelines for dental surgery, cone beam technology (CBCT) applications and innovations in adhesive dentistry. Dr. Bilski graduated from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 1988.
