Zimmer Biomet Institutes

Revolutionary learning facilities

CS_600x300_Zimmer-BiometEquipped with the latest tools and advancements in implant and reconstructive dentistry as well as state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment, the newly renovated Zimmer Biomet Institute (ZBI) in Carlsbad, California, transforms the traditional classroom into a revolutionary learning facility. The Institute’s Simulated Patient Training Laboratory allows clinicians to practice real-life case scenarios, in their entirety, on one-of-a-kind, proprietary simulation patients.

The SimLab is equipped with proprietary mannequins that are anatomically correct with realistic bone matrix, soft tissue, periodontal ligaments, live sinuses and live nerves.

All Zimmer Biomet Institute courses and curriculums are developed and taught by either university-based faculties or world-class educators; and while all courses meet standard objectives, every course taught at a ZBI is unique to the hosting faculty. Dental clinicians from around the world share their knowledge of scientific educational courses in restorative, surgical, and regenerative procedures.

The Carlsbad facility features a newly enhanced 20,000-square-foot dental training center that houses a simulation lab, lecture room with live-streaming capabilities, a locker room with showers, café, and a tranquil outside seating area. Courses offered include case study reviews and simulation workshops (on lifelike mannequins). This provides optimal hands-on experience and support to clinicians as they strive to refine their clinical skills.

“Having taught at all the Zimmer Biomet Institutes for the past 8 years, the new Institute surpassed all my expectations,” said renowned speaker and educator Monish Bhola, DDS, MSD. “I can confidently say that the facility, the advanced surgical and restorative mannequins, and the advanced hands-on training, coupled with a world-class support staff, offer the practitioner an experience unlike any other in the world.

New Carlsbad facility expands education opportunities for the Pacific region

The opening of the new Carlsbad facility comes just on the heels of February’s reopening of the revamped Zimmer Biomet Institute in Parsippany, New Jersey. “Opening not one but two enhanced training centers this year shows our ongoing commitment to providing increased and diversified opportunities for professional training,” said Ken Varner, the Director of Institutes for the dental division.

Zimmer Biomet Institutes around the world host courses that range from basic restorative programs for clinicians who restore fewer than five implant cases each year to advanced cadaveric workshops designed for clinicians who are actively placing and restoring implants. There are also courses developed specifically for laboratory professionals. Additional Zimmer Biomet Institute locations are Bogotá, Columbia; Winterthur, Switzerland; and the global headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
