Dr. Urban’s center is focused on bone grafting and soft tissue regeneration, with the biggest course offered known as the 9-Day Regenerator Program. The three-session program covers “regeneration from A to Z,” Dr. Urban said. During the course, clinicians share their cases and concerns with Dr. Urban and each other, developing their skills over a period of five to six months. The comprehensive program includes all the techniques Dr. Urban teaches, giving clinicians the confidence and skills they need to be successful.
The center also offers a three-day advanced course on tissue regeneration and two-day courses on soft tissue and sinus augmentation. All courses are taught in English with CE credits available through a center partner. Up to 30 clinicians can attend a course, with registration typically required at least a year in advance to ensure a spot.
Both GPs and specialists attend the courses, and Dr. Urban recommends students of all skill levels to start with the Regenerator Program because it offers a high-level overview of regeneration. Many clinicians, however, opt to begin with a two- or three-day program, then come back a year later to take Regenerator because they’re hungry for more.
Students range from specialists with decades of experience to surgically skilled GPs to clinicians who have never done surgery before, Dr. Urban said. Dentists leave with new skills such as the ability to complete soft tissue reconstruction after bone grafting and the know-how to complete vertical augmentation in different areas of the mouth.
No matter their experience level or where they come from, all attendees enjoy discovering Budapest during their free time.
“Budapest is one of the top spots to visit in Europe today. It’s a beautiful, walkable city with the Danube River, a castle along the river and beautiful buildings,” Dr. Urban said. “The people who come here to take the course often say they expected Budapest to be nice, but they didn’t expect it to be this nice. It’s always a positive surprise. They want to come back to take the course but also to visit Budapest.”
