The more I got to know Dr. Justin D. Moody and his faculty, it became evident that they’re going to, not only teach you implant dentistry, but once you invest in taking Pathway courses, they’re with you all the way. You can text them, call them — if you have a question, they’re there for you. Their whole program really goes above and beyond what you would normally experience in any other implant course. Now, one year later, I look forward to placing implants in my practice and I get excited when I see an implant on my schedule.

Our mentors are #1

Dr. Moody has two requirements for all mentors: 
1. “Would I let them place an implant on me?” 
2. “Will they let me call them by their first name?”

There’s no room for egos at The Pathway. Our mentors and faculty are here to teach. It’s our job to make sure your questions get answered and that you feel comfortable enough to ask. 

The attendee to mentor ratio is 2:1, so you always have a skilled hand to guide you during live surgery. We also rotate mentors every half day so you get the opportunity to learn different techniques and styles from each mentor. 

Within a supportive training environment, we gradually push you out of your comfort zone until you feel confident in your abilities. It’s all about encouraging and empowering you to do things on your own so that you can return to your practice ready to place implants!

Dental assistants train

For Free!

Your dental assistant is your right hand. You would never leave your hand at home on the day of surgery, would you? Bringing your assistant gives you a chance to train side-by-side, so you can both take everything you’ve learned and apply it to your practice right away. It's important to us that you go home feeling confident which is why we allow dental assistants to attend live surgery for free. Remember, as Dr. Moody says. "the biggest failure in implant dentistry is failure to launch."
