Hands-On Workshop with Dr. Marco Ronda  

September 27, 2018

at Loews Beach Hotel in Santa Monica

In this dynamic half-day lecture and hands-on workshop using pig jaws, you will learn and practice important aspects of vertical bone regeneration with a focus on the posterior mandible, to include:
  • Indications and Contra-indications
  • Decontaminating the surgical area
  • Flap creation
  • Soft tissue management to avoid early membrane exposure
  • Role of simultaneous or delayed implant placement
  • Surgical protocols
  • Graft selection and shaping
  • Membrane selection, shaping, and fixation
  • Suture selection and suturing techniques
  • Membrane removal and timing
  • Keys to predictability


Dr. Ronda graduated in medicine in 1990 from the University of Verona and has a private dentistry practice in Genoa.

Among the many post graduate courses, he attended the one-year course advanced surgery held by Prof. Massimo Simion in Milan (2001) and attended a Master course in Regenerative Surgical Techniques at the University of Pennsylvania (2003).

Dr. Ronda annually attends the meetings organized by the ‘American Academy of Implant Dentistry’ and several specialized courses on the techniques of horizontal and vertical bone regeneration. He also participates annually at the Continuing Dental Education Program (CDE) at the New York University College of Dentistry.

In 2011 the International Journal of Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry published his study reporting a new surgical technique of lingual flap management appropriate in all cases of increase in bone volume; in the same magazine in 2014, a new clinical study on the management of the buccal flap titled “A novel approach for the coronal advancement of the buccal flap” has been published. He is also author of an article published on COIR magazine comparing the clinical outcomes in GBR with the e-ptfe and d-ptfe non resorbable membrane.

From 2014 to date he periodically provides a semester of practical training courses in implantology and bone regeneration techniques at his private practice. He is an active member of the IAO (Italian Academy of Osseointegration) and co-founder of the Piezosurgery Academy
