Course content

This programme is intended for dental practitioners wishing to develop their theoretical knowledge and practical clinical experience in the treatment planning, surgical placement, restoration and maintenance of dental implants. The programme has been designed to allow you to gain experience of the use of dental implants in prosthodontic treatment within a supervised environment. Knowledge is developed using distance learning modules and study days. You will also have the opportunity to carry out a research project or literature review and prepare a dissertation.

We aim to produce caring, knowledgeable and skilful practitioners, who are competent in the provision of the surgical and restorative dental aspects of dental implant treatment, within the limits of the individual clinician.
