Dr. Pedro Casillas Ascanio and Dr. Jaime Jiménez Garcia, graduates of the Advanced Program for International Dentists in Implant Dentistry in 1998 and 2004, respectively, traveled to China from their home in Spain this past October to present a lecture entitled "Immediate Loading of 15 Ball-Retained Overdentures with Evolution Implants: Can Biology Work Out the Stress?" at the Peking University College of Stomatology and at the China Stomatological Association's Beijing headquarters. Over 100 Chinese dentists and dental students attended the lectures, which were coordinated by Dr. Dixin Zhang, a private practitioner in Beijing who studied in the Advanced Program for International Dentists in Comprehensive Dentistry in 2007.
