Practical Implant Placement Programme

This 18-month part-time implant placement training course is designed to give you the confidence to place implants, and ultimately improve your earning potential. You will treat approximately 10 patients under supervision and learn from the leading experts in the implants field.

This implants course gives you unprecedented access to some of the top clinicians in the world, and meets the training standards in implants endorsed by the General Dental Council.

Brought to you by the College of Medicine and Dentistry, and in partnership with Ulster University, Dentisply Sirona, and the Practical Implant Dentistry Academy, at the of the course you will have a postgraduate diploma to show your high level of professional standards, skill and knowledge.

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Use clinical examination, modern imaging techniques (3-D interactive imaging) and laboratory artefacts.
  • Evaluate the medical and systemic condition to ensure that the patient can be treated safely.
  • Develop a treatment plan for that patient, communicate effectively and document the proposed treatment.
  • Carry out all surgical aspects of the treatment including soft and hard tissue surgery.
  • Include implant placement and minor augmentation.
  • Carry out all aspects of restorative treatment including fixed single tooth restorations, multiple restorations and removable prosthesis.
  • Document treatment that has been carried out in a medico-legally sound manner and enable the surgeon to maintain and monitor treatment that has been carried out.

This course is taught through 12 hands-on workshop sessions each lasting 2-3 days. These sessions will take place on Fridays and Saturdays to minimise the amount of time spent away from work, and will take place at the purpose-built Dental Academy at the Academy of Clinical Excellence in Wakefield, and at the University of Portsmouth.
