Soft Tissue Grafting Hands On Workshop

Learning Objectives:

  • Anatomy of Soft Tissue Understanding: By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the anatomy of soft tissues around teeth and dental implants. They should be able to identify and explain key anatomical structures relevant to soft tissue grafting procedures.

  • Indications and Treatment Planning: Participants should be able to recognize and assess various clinical indications for soft tissue grafting and develop tailored treatment plans based on patient-specific needs and expectations. This includes evaluating factors like gingival recession, insufficient keratinized tissue, and aesthetic concerns.

  • Grafting Techniques and Materials: Attendees should achieve proficiency in the techniques of Free Gingival Grafting (FGG), Connective Tissue Grafting (CTG), and tunneling with Soft Tissue Substitutes. They should also understand the selection and utilization of different grafting materials.

  • Post-Operative Care: Participants should be able to provide sufficient post-operative care and address any unexpected issues that may arise.

She is a certified periodontist, a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada FRCD(C), and a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and Dental Implant Surgery (DABP).


Dr. Tarzemany has received outstanding recognition and academic achievements for her research which centers around the molecular mechanisms of wound healing and scar formation. In 2015, she was the first ever Canadian to win the highly prestigious international Volpe Competition that recognizes the best periodontal research from the US, Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. Dr. Tarzemany has also been the recipient of numerous prestigious national and international awards including the Joseph Tonzetich Fellowship (2012, 2013, and 2014), the B.W. Leung Award (2015), Dr. Donald M.

She has also continued her research, focused on molecular biology of oral wound healing, resulting in several publications in peer-reviewed journals, and winning many national and international awards, including the prestigious Volpe Prize.


During her three-year surgical residency at UBC, Rana gained valuable didactic and clinical training in all aspects of periodontal and implant surgeries. Her ultimate goal, as a researcher-clinician, is to make a more meaningful translation of bench-top research into clinical application.. In addition, Rana has authored several publications in peer-reviewed journals and presented her research findings at various conferences within Canada and internationally.
