With over 20 years of research and clinical experience, Dr. Sascha Jovanovic is among first pioneers for guided bone regeneration. During this 2 day hands-on workshop, you will learn about predictable techniques that are developed by Dr. Jovanovic over decades for successful vertical and horizontal ridge augmentation.

Interactive Lecture: 8:30am to 12:30pm
- Diagnosis, treatment planning and patient selection for grafting procedures
- Scientific background and literature support
- Surgical armamentarium for predictable augmentation
- Indication and limitations of different regenerative materials
- Barrier membranes and fixation tools
- Potential intra-oral donor sites, as well as techniques for bone harvesting
- Surgical techniques for flap design, advancement and primary closure and soft tissue management
- Post-operative protocol
Live Surgery: 2:00pm – 5:00pm
GBR Procedure for Implant Site Development
DAY 2 - VERTICAL RIDGE AUGMENTATION
Hands-On Workshop: 8:30am to 12:30pm

Interactive Lecture: 2:00pm – 5:00pm
- Growth factors for vertical ridge augmentation
- Mucogingival problems before, during and after GBR grafting
- Reconstruction of vestibule and increase and keratinzed attached gingiva after vertical ridge augmentation

DR. SASCHA JOVANOVIC
LOS ANGELES, CA | PERIODONTIST & IMPLANT SURGEON
Dr. Sascha A. Jovanovic is considered one of the founders of guided bone regeneration (GBR). He was formally trained in periodontics at UCLA School of Dentistry, in Implant Dentistry at Loma Linda University and in Prosthodontics at University of Aachen, Germany and holds a Master of Sciences degree in Oral Biology from UCLA.
He restricts his clinical work to dental implant therapy and bone & soft tissue reconstruction and is Founder and Academic Chairman of the gIDE Institute and Assistant Professor at Loma Linda University.
He is an honorary member of the South African Society of Periodontology, was the program chair of the EAO 2000 scientific congress, as well an award recipient from the American Academy of Periodontology, the California Society of Periodontists, and the German Implant Society (DGI).
Dr. Jovanovic’s clinical research emphasizes esthetic management in dental implant therapy and bone and soft tissue reconstruction techniques. His applied research focuses on bone regeneration with different bone graft materials, growth factors and barrier membranes as well as the biology of soft tissues around teeth and implants.
He lectures extensively worldwide and has published over 65 articles and book chapters, and one textbook titled Color Atlas of Implantology (Thieme Publ.) which is translated in 8 languages. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the gIDE academic curriculum, is on several editorial boards for scientific journals and presents and teaches his implant protocols globally.
He is Founder and Academic Chairman of gIDE Institute, Associate Professor of Loma Linda University, Past-President of the European Association of Osseointegration (EAO) and Past-co-chairman of the UCLA dental implant center.
