The course has been designed for dentists who have enough academic knowledge of implant dentistry but require additional support and mentoring for the clinical placement and restoration. The course aims to empower the dentist by providing them with quality assured, accredited all-round education with-in implant dentistry scientifically, academically and clinically. Through a variety of meticulous process of the application of theory to the clinical practice, we help our students to enhance their skill set and competence in implant density for enhanced patient care, clinical safety and better treatments.

The course is a hands-on, fully clinical training course and is based at ICE Postgraduate Dental Institute & Hospital under the ICE Mentor Faculty. Training will include mentoring as well as case-based discussions with fellow dentists. This will allow participants to expand their skills and overcome obstacles with confidence.

Special emphasis is given to the patient assessment and treatment planning, diagnostic imaging, implant section and restorative design criteria using three major implant systems. This allows students to focus on working within their comfort zone and enhancing their skill set and competency.
