Practitioners who aspire to treat more challenging dental implant cases can further develop their skills on a series of courses this year.
The Advanced Implantology Programme is presented by Dermot McNulty at Bath Spa Dentistry.
The four modules cover surgical skills, soft tissue management, bone grafting and sinus augmentation.
Details can be found on DENTSPLY Friadent’s education website www.courses4implants.com.
The programme is aimed at dentists with some experience of implantology who are ready to enhance their knowledge and skills.
Mike Coleman, of Coleman and Starkey, Trowbridge, describes how the training has helped him to develop his business: ‘Implants have since become a more routine part of treatment planning in my practice. I can see that this will increase my turnover.’
Delegates are taught via a combination of lectures, practical demonstrations and hands-on workshops, live surgical procedures, as well as patient management.
Dr Alan McCarthy, of Market View Dental Practice, Sherborne, attended the Soft Tissue Management course and says: ‘he content was a good mix of lectures and useful practical training on pigs’ heads. I came away enriched and keen to move on to the next level.’
Dermot McNulty has extensive experience in implant and aesthetic dentistry, and the treatment of complex restorative cases.
He also runs an implantology year programme at Bath Spa Dentistry, which is now in its fourth year.
Dermot is a lecturer and examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons, Faculty of General Dental Practice Implant Diploma Courses held in London and Leeds, and Course Director for the Implant Diploma Programme in London.
Bath Spa Dentistry is a referral centre designed specifically for the delivery of advanced restorative and implant dentistry.
