Course content:

The course is very hands on with 50% of it being in surgery. Each nurse learns how to gown up and how to manage an Implant procedure. We also take them through the cleaning and maintenance of instrumentation conforming to HTM O1-05 regulations. There is plenty of time to discuss all implant topics and to have the training dedicated to how you, the dentist, works. This could be using a ‘dirty nurse’ or not; so the procedures can be different and adapted to your needs. There is also a theory lecture. This is interactive, as Tom welcomes questions, so that everyone gets the most out of the day. The lecture is aimed at nurses, so that the information is pertinent to their implant education. We keep the numbers to 6 delegates so that each nurse has the opportunity to go through a full procedure. Hints and tips on how to make their job easier are given.
