About Optimum Solutions Group LLC:
Intensive Hands-On Surgery courses
for Professionals and Newcomers
Since 2003 the Trinon Collegium Practicum has assisted over 2000 surgeons to insert more than 40 000 implants in practical courses, helping them to develop their practical skills.
The courses are being conducted by very experienced international surgeons providing Implantology newcomers with advice and assistance in inserting 30 implants in 5 days. Professionals can expect to conduct difficult operations ranging from sinus elevations to highly complicated grafting cases with assistance from our internationally recognized surgeons.
The one-week hands-on course gives the opportunity to collect practical experience in implantology, pre-implantological treatment and in extremely complicated cases under supervision of a team of highly skilled tutors.
The courses are based on collaboration between the Trinon Collegium Practicum and established university clinics in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Cambodia and Laos.
The first Q-Implant Marathon in Cuba was born from the idea to give surgeons the opportunity to quickly gain in-depth experience in implantology directly with the patient. Furthermore there was a common understanding that practical educational
seminars for surgeons were not being offered and this resulted in lack of experience and a hesitation while inserting implants.
The Q-Implant Marathon benefits the surgeons by gaining experience, the local clinics which conduct case studies and the especially the patients who rediscover a new quality of life with new teeth. The courses gained popularity with all stakeholders and since its beginning in 2003 over 95 courses in 4 countries have been conducted by the Trinon Collegium Practicum, a research institute commited to the promotion of implantology and its benefits for patients.
The courses, with its credo "Learning by doing", have seen a rising number of patients over the time, by 2008 the number reached over 8 700 patients with over 29 000 implants inserted.
