Course Synopsis

Limited to 20 Dentists! Don’t be disappointed, REGISTER EARLY!

This course will involve didactic and hands-on training together with the opportunity to treat two cases from your own practice under the supervision of Faculty experts including case selection, diagnosis, treatment planning, surgical phase and prosthodontics phase to final completion.

Student dentists may select patients requiring single or multiple implants, but all patients to be treated must be approved by the Faculty as suitable for the educational requirements of the student. Students much provide their own patients!

    • Surgical techniques on plastic jaws
    • Surgical techniques on Pig jaws

Prosthodontic Treatment Phase: 

  • Implant site development (including didactic concept on lateral window sinus approach, crestal approach, guided bone regeneration and review of materials such as different types of bone grafts and membrane)
  • Prevention and management of implant complications
  • Increase case acceptance and team training

Note: This course will meet the new RCDSO Guidelines for Educational Requirements for Implant Dentistry.
