Why attend this course?

If you’re an experienced general dental practitioner looking to develop your skills in providing dental implants as a treatment offering within your practice, this course combines the academic and clinical teaching required to meet the GDC/ FGDP Training Standards in Implant Dentistry (2016).

We provide all the required equipment, patients and mentorship to help you treat a diverse range of implant cases (min. 4 patients) within your comfort zone, and gain the practical skills and competency in patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment – all under the supervision and support of a clinical mentor.
