The aim of this programme is to provide education and training for general dental practitioners to enable them to practise implant dentistry to a high standard and in the best interests of the patient. On completion of the programme the dentist should gain the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to:

  • Define and carefully execute the most suitable treatment for the patient

  • Carry out any procedures required to augment deficient sites within the capabilities of the practitioner
  • Carry out surgical and restorative aspects of implant therapy and provide the patient with aesthetic and functional restorations to a high degree of predictability
  • Monitor and maintain the treatment that has been completed for the patient

This is a two-year programme and will be held in the main at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, London.
