Soft Tissue AIM Course – Review

Updated: Oct 26, 2023

AIM Soft Tissue Grafting Course Adelaide Group Shot

The Academy for Implant Mastery (AIM Education) recently ran our Soft

Tissue Grafting for the Beginner course for the second time, to another

great success!

This 1 day course took place in Adelaide to a packed house of eager

dental professionals. The day began with our experienced instructor, Dr

Steve Soukoulis, giving a series of insightful and educational lectures that

invited conversations and discussions with the participants.

Topics of the lectures included; principles of predictable soft tissue grafting, harvesting

techniques for autogenous tissues, post-operative management and

complications and how to manage them.

After the lecture series was completed, the late morning and afternoon

included practical components utilising pig jaws. During the hands-on

sessions, Dr Soukoulis showcased step by step techniques for the

participants to learn including lateral sliding flaps, coronally advanced

flaps for single and multiple teeth recession defects, and tunnel graft


All of the attendees had 1 on 1 assistance with Dr Soukoulis to improve

their skills, and all definitely left with much better understandings and skill

sets required to tackle recession defects in their patients.

Prior to the course, all attendees were added to a WhatsApp group chat

which will be used indefinitely to allow participants to contact their

lecturer with any future cases, where they can showcase their newly

learnt skills or ask any follow up questions regarding their cases. This is an

invaluable way for our attendees to improve their competency in implant

related dentistry.

This dental course provided the attendees with 8 CPD points. Due to the

popularity of this course, AIM Education will definitely be running this

again in 2024! In the meantime, AIM also has an upcoming 2 day Hard

and Soft Tissue Grafting course scheduled for the 13th and 14th October, in

Brisbane QLD later in 2023! Check out our website for booking details for

this course, including an early bird discount.

This course was graciously sponsored by Biohorizons Camlog Australia,

with participants able to purchase a variety of materials with Biohorizons

with a generous 20% discount!
