ICE Association (ICEa)

What is ICEa

Implant Centres of Excellence Association is a membership group that is designed to support professional and personal development within Implant Dentistry.  It is a platform created for peers and colleagues to learn and interact on all levels.

The ICE family

The Association is only a small part of the ICE family.  The larger group consists of an educational academy; the ICE Postgraduate Institute (ICEi) and a network of clinics; the ICE referral centres.  ICEi offers high quality courses and mentoring programmes, from informal courses to MSc level, whilst ICE consists of referral centres set up regionally to work in close cooperation with referring practitioners for local delivery of high quality dental implant treatment.

 

ICEa and you.

ICE is about support.  We provide structured support to our referring dentists by supporting  their continuous  professional development in implant dentistry so that they can incorporate implant treatment within their practices with ease, confidence, safety and our back up.   Through ICEi and ICEa there are  numerous opportunities available for referring dentists to become involved in implant education, training and mentoring at various levels of complexity (straightforward - advanced to complex) to suit different needs of all practitioners and DCPs.

The Cost of ICEa

Annual membership is complimentary for our referring practitioners. You can of course take advantage of the benefits of ICEa , if you are not a referring practitioner, for a fee of £125
