Dr. Kelly J. Blodgett, a General Dentist who is board certified in Naturopathic Medical Dentistry and Integrative Biological Dental Medicine, is one of the most unique dentists in the world. At the age of 21, just prior to earning his bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Oregon, he felt called by God to become a dentist.  The specific calling he heard was to “reverse the negative stereotype of dentistry.”  Since becoming a licensed dentist in 1999, he has positively impacted hundreds of thousands of people worldwide through the care that he provides in his clinic and through his social media post series “Toxic Tuesday” and “Wellness Wednesday.” 

Dr. Blodgett has performed hundreds of presentations on progressive dental concepts over the past 25 years, along with being the featured guest on dozens of podcasts, webinars, news segments and Instagram Live events. 

His approach of connecting with the human being first and focusing on their health goals as the guideposts to treatment is a refreshing shift from the “doctor knows best” dogma of other practices.

As the founder of Blodgett Dental Care in Portland, OR, Dr. Blodgett has developed a practice that holds a worldwide status of being one of the most sought-after destinations for dental tourism.  BDC’s uniqueness stems from both the respect it offers to its patients as individuals along with its artful fusion of biology and technology.  Dr. Blodgett is committed to investing his energy to help all dental practices adopt biological practices and develop communication skills that respect the autonomy of the patient.

About the Course

The HANDS-ON ZIRCONIA DENTAL IMPLANTS course offers a broad overview of the methods and techniques involved in case planning and placing zirconia implants.

The first part is a lecture about ceramic implants’ special properties, different surgical techniques between zirconia and titanium, case planning and avoiding failures. The instructor will also use verified case studies to highlight the advantages of placing zirconia dental implants. Temporization and final restorations will also be discussed. The trainer will perform a live surgery and shadowing opportunity for all participants.

The second part will be “Hands-On” where participants will be given the opportunity to place zirconia implants in models. The instructor will lead the hands-on part with a demonstration of the techniques involved. This will be followed by personalized instruction during which the attendees place zirconia implants and the trainer will offer guidance. The session will end with Q&A, and a discussion about marketing zirconia implants in their practice.
