The course will be delivered by a team of experienced implant dentists, periodontal specialists and restorative specialists, providing a perfect blend of hospital and practice based clinical practice.
Delegates will gain knowledge and practical skills allowing them to assess, evaluate and diagnose cases and treat simple implant cases in their clinical practice. Comprehensive support will be provided throughout the course with each delegate assigned a named personal course mentor.
