Continuing Dental Education

Implant & Periodontal Therapy is an international leader in continuing education. All three of our periodontal surgeons have lectured locally, nationally, as well as internationally and the benefits of their knowledge have been spread far and wide.

Locally, Drs. Rasmussen has been considered a resource to their dental community by continuing a presence with county and regional dental societies. In addition, Drs. Rasmussen also hold evening programs for dentists and hygienists on topics such as implant dentistry, recognition and treatment of periodontal disease, periodontal plastic surgery and dental photography. 

In total, Implant & Periodontal Therapy provides more than 200 hours of continuing education per year to the local, regional and international dental communities. It is for this and many other reasons why many in Tampa feel that they are the best periodontists.

Additionally, they chartered the Seattle Study Club-Tampa in 1997, which is an invitation-only continuing education organization that focuses on quality interdisciplinary care for patients. This study club brings internationally-renowned speakers into the Tampa area in order to keep our members continually on top of relevant topics in all phases of dentistry.
