The Association of Dental Implantology Dental Nurses’ Courses have been developed in response to the increased role played by dental nurses in supporting implant clinicians.
Attendees begin with the Original Dental Nurses’ Course, which aims to increase the understanding of dental implantology to dental nurses. This course provides dental nurses the knowledge and confidence to support the operator with surgical implant placement and subsequent restorative appointments.
Delegates who move onto the Advanced Dental Nurses’ Course have the chance to learn complex surgical nursing techniques involved in implant placement including, sinus lifts, bone grafting, socket preservation and soft tissue augmentation.
The course has been designed to encourage confidence in their ability to assist throughout implant procedures, allowing the clinician to focus on the task in hand.
Dr Simon Wright, director of education at the ADI says: 'We feel it is crucial that dental nurses are highly trained to ensure that implant patients receive expert treatment. Clinicians are giving them more responsibility in many dental practices and the ADI Dental Nurses’ Courses are the ideal way to help them develop their skills.'
Both courses are priced at a competitive £150. The Original course takes place on Saturday 9 March and Saturday 28 September 2013.
The Advanced course takes place on Saturday 20 April and Saturday 23 November 2013. For further details visit www.adi.org.uk/nurses_courses or call the Association on 020 8487 5555.
