Dr. Mongalo guarantees minimum placement of 25 implants during the 7-Day course with the following conditions:

(1)…That each doctor will operate on 6-8 patients reserved for him/her according to their surgical skill. This number of patients makes it possible to achieve such number of implants place.

(2)…Operating doctor unable to perform or complete the surgery due to his/her lack of surgical skills making it necessary that the supervising faculty completes the surgery. Unforeseen surgical errors on the part of the operating doctor such as perforations, breaking of cortical tables, sinus perforations, inadequate alveoploplasty, inadequate flaps and damage the site, will force the patient to be lost and the expected number of implants will be reduced.

(3)…If the doctor desires to focus his/her training on any of the following protocols, the number of implants will be greatly reduced due to the nature of these specific surgeries such as:

(3A) Doctors focused on learning Sinus lifts either intra-crestal and/or lateral windows, by nature reduce the number of implants since the focus is on the sinus elevation technique and not the placement of implants.

(3B) Bone grafting procedures such as socket preservations, ridge splits, ridge augmentation, will reduce the number of implants to be placed since bone grafting is a procedure needed to prepare the site before implant placement.

(3C) Doctor desiring to focus on placing only simple implants on partially edentulous patients (1, 2 and 3 implants at a time) because this is their patient population in their offices, he/she will not reach the 25-implant mark.

Dr. Mongalo guarantees placement of 10 implants during the 4-Day course with the following conditions:

(1)…That each doctor will operate on 4-5 patients reserved for him/her according to their surgical skill. This number of patients makes it possible to achieve such number of implants place.

(2)…Operating doctor unable to perform or complete the surgery due to his/her lack of surgical skills making it necessary that the supervising faculty completes the surgery. Unforeseen surgical errors on the part of the operating doctor such as perforations, breaking of cortical tables, sinus perforations, inadequate alveoploplasty, inadequate flaps and damage the site, will force the patient to be lost and the expected number of implants will be reduced.

(3)…If the doctor desires to focus his/her training on any of the following protocols, the number of implants will be greatly reduced due to the nature of these specific surgeries:

*Sinus lifts, intra-crestal and/or lateral windows, by nature reduce the number of implants since the focus is on the sinus elevation technique and not the placement of implants.

*Bone grafting procedures such as socket preservations, ridge splits, ridge augmentation, will reduce the number of implants to be placed since bone grafting is a procedure needed to prepare the site before implant placement.

*If doctor desires to focus on placing only simple implants on partially edentulous patients (1, 2 and 3 implants at a time) because this is their patient population in their offices, he/she will not reach the 10-implant mark

Keep in mind that we are dealing with patients that can:

1…change their mind on the proposed treatment plan at the last minute

2…sudden changes in medical status that will preclude from undergoing treatment

3…problems with transportation or other personal issues that will result in no-shows

4…have underlying health problems not detected during the screening process that can result in hemorrhage, poor bone quality which will change the proposed surgery or become anxious and making the surgery impossible

There are also other unpredictable factors such as:

Acts of God. These are defined as “an event that directly and exclusively results from the occurrence of natural causes that could not have been prevented by the exercise of foresight or caution; an inevitable accident. Courts have recognized various events as acts of God—tornadoes, earthquakes, death, extraordinarily high tides, violent winds, and floods. Many insurance policies for property damage exclude from their protection damage caused by acts of God”. Such nature occurrences can affect the number of patients available for treatment during that training.

Dr. Mongalo will not tolerate unprofessional behavior, this includes the following:

1…not following instructions dictated by the supervising faculty. Arguing with your faculty or Dr. Mongalo in front of patients is not acceptable. Any clinical difference of opinions must be presented in writing and addressed in private to Dr. Mongalo.

2…treating patients inhumanly, not following US standard of care. Leaving patient unattended while operating is not acceptable. While there is a surgery being performed, no person in the team (faculty, resident, attending doctors, assisting doctor) will be allowed to leave the room.

3…performing procedures that the attending Doctor wants but that the patients do not need. If you need to learn a particular surgical technique, advise Dr Mongalo so he can seek the appropriate patient for you keeping in mind that all patients must match the operating doctor surgical level.

4…stealing patients assigned to others, not following group rules such as abandoning your partner. If your partner assists you for 3 hours, you owe him/her the same courtesy. Assisting is a great educational tool and will learn as much as operating.

5…inciting negative group comments without approaching Dr.Mongalo the Course Director.  The faculty, surgical residents and other attending doctors cannot and will not solve any problems or concerns that attending doctors might have related to room assignment, patient selection, case distribution, expectations, facilities, etc…the only person that can and will solve these issues is Dr. Virgil Mongalo. In order for him to address any problems or concerns he must be notified early during the week. Any and all complaints must be presented to Dr. Mongalo no later than the 2nd day of the course, which is Monday at the end of the surgical day. If complaints are presented on Thursday-Friday it will be too late to correct them since the course is close to completion.

6…attend course after a night of alcohol beverages or narcotics consumption that will interfere

with your abilities and/or exhibiting unprofessional behavior in ways you would not behave in

your office.

7…the course is taught in English. The faculty and residents will speak English during the course. The attending doctors are required to speak English as well even if you are working with someone that speaks your native language, this is considered disrespectful to the rest of doctors, faculty and residents.
