Course aims:

Our course will suit practitioners with little or no implant dentistry experience. You will develop the skills to plan, treat and maintain implant cases. The course satisfies the requirements of UK Training Standards in Implant Dentistry.

Course content:

Part-time, approximately 40 days attendance over 18 months (usually Fridays). Maximum of 8 participants.

The programme consists of three modules: Theory of implant dentistry and simulated skills training, Clinical assessment and surgery for dental implantation (including guided bone regeneration and minimal trauma extractions), and restoration and maintenance of dental implants.

Practical Skills are introduced in the clinical skills laboratory with simulation exercises using artificial jaws and animal and human cadaver material. Acquisition of skills is consolidated in the clinic with the aid of live video. Award of the diploma is dependent on achieving satisfactory assessments throughout the course.

The course director is Dr Francis Nohl, Consultant and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer in Restorative Dentistry, Specialist in Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics. He has over twenty years' experience of the surgical and prosthodontic aspects of implant dentistry, and is supported by a highly motivated team of clinical/academic specialists and nurses and technicians. We utilise dental implant components supplied by Nobel Biocare.

Course Benefits:

Patients are recruited for you to treat during the course by Newcastle Dental Hospital. The institution has state-of-the-art skills training facilities and high spec. clinical treatment areas, as well as in-house dental production laboratories. Cone beam scanning and virtual implant planning software are in routine use. As far as is practicable, individual patients are treatment planned, implanted and restored by a named course participant. The programme provides good preparation for the Diploma in Implant Dentistry at the Royal college of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Attendance of accompanying nurses (who will be awarded CPD) is an option.

Newcastle is easily accessible by road, rail or air. The Journey from London can be made in under three hours.
