This fundamental course in dental implantology will enable beginners in implant dentistry to achieve competence in case selection and treatment planning for straightforward cases in implant dentistry. This course will provide an understanding of the development, scope, infection control standards, and preparation of the dental clinic and patient to safely practice implant dentistry. The learner will develop skills in dental imaging, photographic and radiographic documentation, and communication with the patient. Upon completion of the entire course, learners will be able to perform case selection and treatment planning in implant dentistry and demonstrate placement of dental implants on simulated patient models.

Unique features

  • Online asynchronous lectures and self-assessment which addresses the need for flexibility in learning hours for the learners (especially general dental practitioners with a busy schedule who are unable to achieve additional certification/learning).
  • Weekend face-to-face hands-on practical skills workshops
  • Opportunity for credit transfer to the Post-Graduate Diploma in Implant Dentistry (PGDID) upon successful completion and certification.
  • Opportunity for participants (including overseas participants) to complete only Module 1 (Online) to receive a badge of completion of the online component.
