The Level 7 PG Diploma in Dental Implantology is targeted towards dentists who are keen on developing their implant treatment skill set, to cover simple and complex cases. The qualification consists of 9 units delivered over 25 contact days in the form of practical sessions, lectures, demonstrations and live patient treatment days. There is a lot of treatment planning and learning around patient cases that occurs out of the contact days as well.

The course takes delegates with little or no experience with Dental Implants and equips them with the knowledge and confidence to not only treat simple single tooth implant cases but also more complex cases. The course covers the key aspects of dental implantology to provide evidence based, safe and predictable treatment of participants own cases. As a live patient course there is significant focus on patient selection, identifying suitable implant patients and how to create an optimum treatment plan using checklists and digital treatment planning tools. In addition to simple cases, this course provides an opportunity to develop a strong understanding about advance topics such as Sinus Lifts, Bone Grafts, Ridge Splits, Soft and Hard tissue management.

Together with Prof. Goran Urde and Prof. Paul Tipton, this course offers the opportunity to interact with and learn from additional internationally renowned faculty. This includes:

Meeting him was a privilege and an honour and I felt he was the best mentor I could have had to embark on my implantology career and not only did I gain from his vast experience but his gentle approach and immaculate attention to detail has helped me gain confidence in not only the clinical aspect of implantology but also the theory and treatment planning, I feel he has been by far the best course leader I have ever had, and believe me I have been on many courses!!
