CARRY OUT IMPLANTS ON REAL PATIENTS

You will treat approximately 10 patients under supervision.

You will observe patients being treated, carry out treatment under supervision and, when confident, treat patients unsupervised. 

However you will also have access to the clinical faculty for guidance. 

Early on in the course there will be a module on patient recruitment. If you are unable to recruit your own patients, a limited number of patients will be provided, but you will need to assess these patients under supervision and carry out the treatment including the follow-up and monitoring. 

Students will need to be qualified dentists. To treat patients you will need to be registered with the GDC and have indemnity cover with a UK-based organisation.

The course is taught over 12 hands-on modules, each module consists of 2-3 days. The practical workshops are supported by supplementary reading which you can carry out in your own time.

Simplant dental planning software provides the clinician with accurate and predictable surgery options. It enables the clinician to assess the patient’s anatomy and see exactly how it relates to the proposed restoration. The treatment plan can be communicated to colleagues, the dental lab and the patient who will all see exactly what the plan really entails.  It is compatible with over 10,000 implants from more than 100 brands, as well as all DICOM compatible (CB) CT scanners and major optical and intraoral scanners.
