Kaival is very willing to teach and train, and has an open-door-policy for any dentists in the local area wishing to learn how to place dental implants. If, however, you are not interested in the surgical side of things but and prefer to restore the implants after placement, Kaival would be more than happy to assist your development there also. Just ask. Within the vast field of implant dentistry, Kaival has a further special interest in Cone Beam Computed Tomography, and has written a dissertation on whether CBCT is the radiographic modality of choice for dental implant planning.
