VSSAcademy strive to support our delegates through this course and more advanced courses with Mentoring, to help you to place the 15-20 cases recommended in order to sit the RCSEd Diploma in Implant Dentistry
This course, led by Dr Fadi Barrak with visiting lecturers, consists of a series of eleven full day intensive workshops comprising morning lectures and afternoon group discussions, case studies, practical demonstrations and hands-on sessions with an OSCE session on the last day
