Successful completion of the course leads to the award of the VSS Academy Certificate in Implant Dentistry and full attendance also provides 88 hours of verifiable CPD.
This course aims to provide the novice with everything they need to learn to be able to place dental implants safely in their own practice. Fully compliant with The FGDP (UK) 2016 Training standards in Implant Dentistry, delegates are taken on a progressive and comprehensive course starting with treatment planning, patient assessment and basic sciences, through surgical skills, restoration occlusion and CBCT, to bone defects and their management, grafting procedures and complications.
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, in association with Quintess Denta Ireland, consists of a series of 11 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.
The course also includes a place on the VSSAcademy “Introduction to Implant Treatment Coordination” for your Treatment Coordinator, Implant Nurse or Practice Manager. This runs in parallel with Module 4 on 18th May 2018.
The course takes you through the basics to the advanced; from practical workshop sessions practising implant placement on mandible models, to pigs heads, to cadavers, and finally to placing implants in real patients under the supervision of a VSSAcademy-approved Mentor.
This course is now approved as part of the education pathway for direct access into the 3rd Year of the University of Central Lancashire’s MSc in Dental Implantology (additional requirements and costs apply).
