I have attended many implant courses in the past, during which I was shown some impressive cases, but left me feeling that I lacked the skills to restore implants. This course has given me the skills and the know-how and the confidence.
If ever I need an expert advice Ope is just a phone call away. I highly recommend attending this course - no regret and very happy.
This course has advanced my restorative skills and dentist - I have occlusion enlightenment, I have adapted and improved impression taking technique and also learned how to communicate better with my laboratory technician to enable a better outcome.
Starting on 9th March 2019
Our philosophy is to set delegates on a 5 year pathway to become a highly competent restoring dentist . We believe that this can only be done through practical experience, which is crucial to any meaningful implant education. Our course has been designed for general dentists - who have been in practice for a couple of years who are looking to expand gently into dental implants.
By referring 12 cases a year - you will gain the practice you need to become a try restorative dentist.
We hold you hand every step of the way .. You will have a mentor to nurture your development, who will ensure you have considerable implant hands experience as well as the theoretical base of knowledge.
Set you on your way to restore minimum of 12 cases a year
Provide 4 Classroom / Hands-on days
4 practical 1:1 days
Platform to interact and discuss cases and have direct access to your mentor.
It’s that time of year which Ope enjoys the most - Tacking 15 hygienists under his wing to train for the year.
Each delegate gets an almost 1:1 experience and thoroughly nemeses themselves into in-depth perio/implant/ restorative and occlusion.
The programme boasts one of the most comprehensive education programmes for hygienists in London at the moment, and we are we are hugely proud of the scope of education we give to Dental Hygienists.
All of which is heavily subsidised by London dental specialists.
If you re considering updating your knowledge this year - they scours is not to be missed !
What makes this course stand out form all the others - we get to go out for the day to the laboratory.
Lesson 1 - perfecting impressions
The day commences within in the surgeries where every delegate gets the opportunity to truly refine their impression taking skills, to critic their own technique and to adopt new behaviours which will help facilitate superior results - so then the dentist can sit back and relax knowing that their crown has a better chance of fitting first time with no grinding.
Lesson 2 - Articulation
We then demystify articulation- using video and practical applications each delegate taken through a step by step techniques watching video and discussing the protocols.
Lesson 3 - Face bow measurements
Each delegate is taught how to take a face bow measurement. This is a approach which will be expected to be used in implant dentistry.
The day ended all to soon with delegates departing with a greater sense of the more advanced techniques of restorative dentistry.
