Need accommodations in Tempe? We recommend that our students stay at Embassy Suites Tempe. It has plenty of rooms and is located just a few minutes away from The Pathway. We even have a shuttle system set up with Embassy Suites Tempe, so you can get free rides to and from The Pathway every morning. The Embassy Suites also offers an Implant Pathway Group Rate on rooms if booked in advance.
There are also plenty of other hotels, Airbnbs, and other lodging options in the area. However, the Embassy Suites Tempe is the only hotel that offers The Pathway’s free shuttle service, so you’ll need to arrange your own transport to The Pathway if you choose to stay elsewhere.
Your Implant Pathway journey begins with 20 1-hour long modules. These modules are available on-demand and completed at your own pace. Every attendee must complete all 20 modules of dental implant continued education that covers learning implant history, rationale, treatment and much more. This is the must-know content that Dr. Moody didn't want you to have to travel for which is why we created these online modules. Completion of the modules sets you up for success in the hands-on training in Sessions 2/3.
