Implant/Ultrasound Bone Knife Elite Course

2019-2020 Course Plan


The University of Genoa has 40000 students, 12 colleges, and a revenue of 160 million euros. It ranks 200 universities in the world (with a total of 20000 universities) and strongly supports academic and cultural cooperation.

In the field of dentistry, we offer elite courses covering the following fields: restoration, laser, endodontics, periodontitis/implant, facial beauty (botulinum toxin and fillers), as well as implant/ultrasound bone knives.

In 2015, we became the first group in the world to conduct laser training. At present, we have opened 40 elite dental courses in 18 countries, 3 international master's courses (laser, advanced courses in cosmetic restoration dentistry, implant/denture restoration), and doctoral courses (new dental technologies) ( Facebook: university of Genoa centroaser)

Ultrasound osteotome is a revolutionary bone cutting technique that improves and simplifies daily bone surgery. Special training and necessary learning curve processes are required to achieve the expected clinical outcomes.

This course is organized to provide each participant with a deep understanding of surgical techniques and the possibility of obtaining the correct surgical techniques. This is thanks to excellent textbooks and effective hands-on operations on animal bones.

5 Lecturers

5 themes (each lasting for 2 days)


Each lecturer introduces the clinical advantages of ultrasound osteotomes in their professional field, showcasing the most important scientific research achievements and extensive clinical cases in different anatomical situations.

The textbook introduced in this course presents the core knowledge and proprietary technology of the International Society for Ultrasound Osteotomy.

Course 4













Course 5





















1. Participating in some themed courses will result in obtaining course certificates. (Please refer to the attachment for a sample certificate)

2. Attend all themed courses and pass the exam to obtain the Elite Course Certificate. (Please refer to the attachment for a sample certificate)

After participating students complete the elite course, they can continue and apply for a two-year master's program without examination, corresponding to the name 'Implant and Fixed Denture Restoration'.

3.Registration for all themed courses before January 31, 2019 will result in a 10% discount.

4.During the Genoa study period, there will be an additional 2 days of freely chosen courses/activities.

5.During the study period in Genoa (4 days and 5 nights), local transportation and accommodation are sponsored by the Italian company Mectron.
