This is a 6-month long structured programme, delivered entirely online for a comprehensive and flexible learning experience. Having developed numerous courses over the past decade, we employ a consistent programme design and structure that is highly innovative and combines theoretical education with practical insights. This educational model was pioneering in the field of Dental Implantology. Our approach was subsequently recognised as a benchmark across Europe, setting the standards in clinical assessment of Dental Implantology.


Why study with us?

Traditional undergraduate training for Dental Nurses does not cover implant dentistry. Hence, for nurses aiming to offer surgical and/or restorative support for implant treatments in the UK, it is crucial to receive structured education and training at the right level. ICE formerly delivered the NEBDN Certificate in Dental Implant Nursing, under the guidance of Professor Simon Wright. Our new course is accredited by the University of Salford. We anticipate high demand for this course as Dental Implantology continues to develop as a mainstream treatment modality.

Course Structure

The award is structured around three core components:

Academic component: This will be delivered entirely through online webinars, seminars, lectures and tutorials.

Clinical component: Training will be conducted at the workplace under the guidance of ICE-accredited Clinical Mentors and Nurse Tutors. They will offer both formative and summative assessments of student progression.

Clinical assessment of competence: Evaluation will be based on the examination of clinical portfolios (ROC).


Learning objectives

The Programme will provide the opportunity for Dental Nurses to learn to:  


  • practice to the standards required to support Dental Implantology procedures in the UK
  • develop the critical and analytical skills and independent learning ability required for continuing professional development
  • manage a diverse range of patients and develop skills in patient assessment, examination, investigations, diagnosis and treatment planning, surgery and restoration, to ensure effective management, care and treatment of partially or fully edentulous patients
  • synthesise from a range of sources a comprehensive understanding of techniques to provide safe and effective treatment to patients, taking into account their individual needs
