I had a great experience taking the dental implant residency through T.I.D.E. the course was vey comprehensive in scope and the faculty was helpful and knowledgeable. The hands- on portion complemented well with what we were taught in the classroom. It allowed me to have a deeper understanding and confidence in placing and grafting dental implants. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to lean more about placing or restoring implants in their practice.

It has been a great experience. Course is very well planned. Dr. Lin is amazing knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour. He is a great speaker and staff is amazing. I would highly recommend the course to my colleagues!
The T.I.D.E. course is one of the most comprehensive implant courses out there. Dr . Lin and the faculty are very detail-oriented which is important when it comes to treatment planning and surgeries. The course is well organized and their staff is always available to make sure everything is running smoothly. I had challenging implant cases (overdenture and multiple implants) but all the instructors guided me through the preparations before surgery and always checked-in on me during the surgeries to make sure that everything is going well and that the patient was comfortable. I would strongly recommend T.I.D.E. to anyone willing to delve into the world of implants. A special shout out to Adheesha, Alexa, Paolo and Leah for doing a tremendous job organizing and helping me out during the course.

Got to learn a lot. Fulfilled all my expectations from the course. I graduated dental school, but it was work it! I would definitely come back for the advanced courses.
Dr. Deol (Brampton, ON)
I am very happy that I’ve taken this program. Its given me knowledge, skills and confidence to incorporate implant dentistry into my practice. Everyone involved has been very friendly and helpful. The program has been very organized and covered a broad scope of materials relevant to implant dentistry.
Dr. Nateghi (Simcoe, ON)
I am really glad I chose this course. The quality of the education provided is excellent and I got the sense that Dr. Lin wanted us to learn and succeed in becoming competent implantologists. I will definitely return for more advanced courses once I develop my skill set in placing single and multi-unit implants.
Dr. Boulos (St. Laurent, QC)
Great course, a lot of valuable content about implants and general dentistry. Great hands-on and live patient surgery making you conﬁdent to place implants in your office.
Dr. Urzedowski (Montreal, QC)
Excellent overall course! Encourges self-learning, motivation and knowledge on how to integrate implants into your practice and not just the technical aspects.
Dr. Ng (Montreal, QC)
Being relatively a new grad (1.5 years) when I started the implant residency, I was worried I may have bit off more than I could chew (pun intended). Thankfully the fabulous course instructors allowed me to feel confident and competent in my ability to perform implant dentistry. The hands-on components from class to live patients were an amazing experience in which I even placed an implant on my father in-law. I would highly recommed the T.ID.E. program to my friends. P.s. with the live patients, my course was paid for in full!
Dr. Malhi (Milton, ON)
This residency has been very educational. I have learned a lot. I am confident to be able to treatment plan and surgically place and restore single implants. Dr Lin and other instructors have been great mentors. Their educational materials and information are incredibly thorough. I would recommed their course to all those who want to gain basic knowledge and confidence performing implant placement
Dr. Patel (Mississauga, ON)
“Best course ever!” Proves the point you learn through doing and that’s what was done.
The course series was a comprehensive and complete program on implants. Dr. Lin had mentioned during the series that he is going to make you a better dentist with implants. After completing the course, I can honestly say that I feel more confident in placing and restoring dental implants. The series is for the novice and also for the dentist who is more experienced. You can select your patients accordingly and all the specialist instructors are there to guide you during the program. I highly recommend that every dentist take this series as part of their implant training.
The TIDE Implant course is everything any high quality standard dentist could hope for: the theory is detailed and complete, the knowledge you acquire is outstanding and the support you get from your mentors during and after the course is unmet by any other program. Dr Lin and his team are not afraid to challenge you, take you out of your comfort zone and force you to elevate yourself to the Elite Level we should all aim for. You come out not only a much better practitioner but also a better person.
This course was an incredible learning experience. I was extremely impressed with every aspect and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dr. Lin’s training to anyone seeking to add implant surgery to their daily routine. Would actually take this entire course again, that’s how impressive it was.
I think it’s the best decision of my life… when I see the operation and Dr. Lin’s course, I see that a lot of effort has gone into it… I would recommend it to anyone.
This course has allowed me to incorporate implants into my practice from a surgical and restorative aspect by providing me with solid surgical and treatment planning foundations that I can trust.
This is indeed the best course we’ve ever attended.Dr. Mark Lin you really train our brains. We knew very little about implant and now we’re so comfortable doing even the complicated cases.
We definitely recommend this course to all dentists who are eager to add implant surgery to their practice….
After this weekend (surgical session) I feel comfortable placing implants, but, more importantly I know what should be referred and understand the latest bone grafting techniques by up-to-date oral surgeons, so we can describe and recommend procedures to our clients. This course has had a tremendous impact on our practice as we see things quite differently now. It is a whole new area of growth, excitement and fun. We are now even more proud of the new services we can offer our clients.
The only way to learn how to do an implant is to place implants with real patients. This course allows you to place implants in real patients. Fantastic!
Placing implants cannot be learned in a weekend course. Take this course and it will allow you to know which cases you should treat and which ones you should refer. This course will increase your brain power guaranteed!
Mark’s approach to implant dentistry is refreshing. He focuses on a prosthetic driven approach which ultimately will lead to greater clinical success in implant dentistry. Lecturers are entertaining and patient-focused. I now feel ready to offer implants as a viable treatment option for my own patients.
The AIID course in implants is hands down the single greatest continuing education experience you will ever have. Thorough, systematic, organized, professional and practical. From the state-of-the art training facility, to the world class lecturers and detailed course notes, to the outstanding and dedicated course administrators–> everything is of the highest quality. Dr. Lin has the rare gift as an educator to inspire with his skill and experience as an everyday clinician whilst maintaining a humility and openness that nurtures your development and confidence in placing and restoring implants!
I was quite impressed with the implant course offered by AIID. Dr. Mark Lin is an articulate and knowledgeable lecturer blending entertainment, clinical pearls, and emphasizing critical treatment planning, risk and patient management. Top lecturers from the University of Toronto were brought in including the Heads of Prosthodontics, and Periodontology. The hands-on cadaver exercises allowed us to familiarize ourselves with the anatomical structures and landmarks and simulate real-life scenarios while placing implants (e.g. possible dehiscence and fenestrations, flap design and graft placement)… but it’s all the planning and theory before we pick up a drill that is important. Another advantage of this course is the simultaneous lecturing of our auxiliaries and staff at another site. While we learn about implant theory, my office manager and assistant are learning about treatment coordination, dental photography, operatory set up and other subjects. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and will look forward to placing implants into carefully screened candidates in the future.
If you want to learn to surgically place dental implants and desire a comprehensive program that will take you from A to Z, this is the program you MUST invest in. Concepts from treatment planning to surgery to prosthetic placement, from didactic principles to model preparations and actual patient procedures, this comprehensive program will give you the confidence to implement implant dentistry within your practice. The foundations of knowledge with lectures were provided from multidisciplinary specialists that are well respected in the professional field. The hands-on exercises, training on models, practice on cadavers and observations of live patient procedures served to be valuable learning experiences prior to our own live patient procedures. We then took the next step and performed surgeries and implant placements on our own cases under the guidance of multiple clinical specialists. In addition, the program trained my staff to assist and incorporate implants into the practice through the concurrent auxilliaries program. I couldn’t be happier with my choice I made by taking this program and would encourage anyone interested in adding or improving their current knowledge base in dental implants to make the decision to take this valuable course. In addition to gaining the confidence to implement dental implants in my private practice, I know I have become a much well rounded and better dentist by taking this course.
My first complete seminar with all kinds of hands-on practice, very detailed hands-on surgery.
This course is so complete which even included “an understanding and review of the anatomical structures of the potential implant site” was excellent, that I felt more confident in treating and placing implants anywhere in the jaw. I also greatly appreciate for Dr. Lin’s thought of training our staff complimentarily and making them knowledgeable about implants.
Even an old dog can learn new tricks…I found Mark Lin’s program very comprehensive and the expert specialty staff friendly and willing to share. I recommend this course for new implant surgeons as well as a good refresher for those with experience. Thank you for providing such a professional environment in which to train our brains.
Module 2: Implant Surgical Principles: “My first time learning about this topic and I reached my goal! To be confident of applying it tomorrow in my practice.”
Dr. Kokosis was excellent, knowledgeable, approachable and informative. Excellent day filled with info and hands-on training.
Module 2 is another excellent learning experience, both theoretically & the hands-on experience. Dr. Lin is [an] engaging and motivating speaker, I look forward to Module 3!
