Belize Mission Trips: The Texas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies is one of
the oldest hands-on course providers in dentistry. Through the leadership of
director J Tim Rainey, D.D.S, TIADS has been the leading pioneer in Minimally
Invasive Preventive Dentistry™. Our trips into Belize, which have been focused
on EarlyDignosis/Early Intervention MIPD™, will revolutionize operative
dentistry. We have now treated over 400 preteen adolescents in Belize, and have
examined over 100 on one-year recall.
results of this peer reviewed technology has been spectacular, with very little
decay in previously treated teeth or newly erupted teeth, compared to the
standard 50% failure rate of tra
ditional resin based “Sealants”. This hands-on
opportunity provides complete immersion in technology under the guidance of an
experienced Mentor, an atmosphere that will assure success in implementing this
technology when the practitioner returns to the office on Monday morning with the unit he/she used in Belize.
You will also leave with the satisfaction of knowing that YOU have provided a
service that your patients simply could not have received otherwise, technology
that will provide a lifetime of benefits for those whom you have touched.

stainless steel crown, and at times, sedation, invasive procedures that we

May, 2013 dental mission to Belize, we treated 250 children. Using Glass Ionomer cements, we restored
approximately 2500 teeth during the week we were there. The Belizean government is keeping records on
these patients, including which teeth were treated, and we will have long term
studies in years to come. The Belizean government wants us there and we are providing
lifelong benefits for these patients.
course is for dentists, hygienists, and expanded duty assistants, and practices
dedicated to stewardship and future health of their patients. This technology
can easily eliminate as much as 80% of all future dentistry in the patients who
grow up under the care of a practice dedicated to the principles of ED/EI MIPD
as taught in this course.

the most effective practice builder available in dentistry today. The results
in practice building have far surpassed anything dentistry currently has to
offer. Your expanded duty personnel will learn how to add significantly to your
