Ideally, each dentist should be competent in simple oral surgery procedures and restorative dentistry. The focus on this course is placement and restoration of simple implant cases. Each stage of planning will be assessed and signed off prior to undertaking the case in practice. The course will be designed so candidates can start consulting patients for implant dentistry at an early stage with full support from clinical mentoring.
