Will i need to change my indemnity?
Only when you start engaging in dental implants therapy. Once you start you must inform your indemnity provider and allow them to put the appropriate cover in place and of course the appropriate subscription. You must not engage in ANY implant placement. Treatment planning and providing dental implant options is allowed.
There is no additional indemnity for attending the course or for practical hands-on training. You will be able to start consultations before you have finished the course. We will guide you during the course.
Do i need to live in the UK?
No, you do not need to live in the UK. We are happy to accept dentists from any country. However, you will have to make your own travel arrangements and organise any necessary visas yourself. We are sorry that we cannot assist in complying with UK entry requirements although we are happy to send information about the course to any necessary authorities. We will be happy to recommend hotels and provide advice on travel within the UK.
What qualifications do i need?
You only need to have a degree that qualifies you as a dentist. We have had dentists as early as one year post qualified starting the course.
Do I need to have any previous experience in Dental Implants?
No, we will guide you from zero experience. We have successfully trained over 50 dentists. The majority of them with no experience. Many had not even lifted a periosteal flap and completed surgical extractions.

14-15 days. This includes 3 modules, 3-4 days each over a period of 3-4 months. There are Two days at a laboratory. There is also a surgical day at one of the directors surgeries where the implant work flow is observed. The courses continue for the practical module, where you will place minimum 5 dental implants on live patients. Allow 5/6 days off for this trip.
The course has three modules. These are spread over 3 months and usually last 2 days. There will be online webinars/lectures for some of the components. Finally there will be a 3 day hands-on component. Participants will each place at least 5 dental implants.
