Clinical Implant Dentistry - PGDip


Course Description

Our course will suit practitioners with little or no implant dentistry experience. You will develop the skills to plan, treat and maintain implant cases. We provide the patients you treat on the course. The course satisfies the requirements of UK Training Standards in Implant Dentistry.

You will develop your intellectual skills through:
-Case study analysis
-Problem-based learning
-Open discussion
-Self-evaluation

You will develop your practical clinical skills through:
-One-to-one clinical coaching
-Supervised clinical work carried out on patients

You will also gain experience in:
-Minimal trauma extractions
-Guided bone regeneration
-Designing long-term maintenance plans
-How to establish implant dentistry into the practice setting

The course satisfies the requirements of the Training Standards in Implant Dentistry. This is endorsed by the General Dental Council (UK) at the level of 'straightforward placement of implants'. It also provides good preparation for dentists planning to sit the Diploma in Implant Dentistry, offered by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

Delivery

The course is part time over 18 months (approximately one full day per fortnight contact time) commencing in either January or July. We deliver the course through a combination of:
-Seminars
-Distance learning
-Skills training workshops using plastic, animal and human cadaver materials
-One-to-one teaching whilst treating patients

We select patients for planning, surgery and restoration of dental implants. As far as possible, you will see the same patients through their whole course of treatment.

We encourage that a dental nurse from your team accompanies you at skills training workshops and on teaching clinics. Nurses receive broad instruction in surgical and restorative implant procedures. They will also become familiar with implant product handling.

We run the course in partnership with Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The vast majority of the course takes place at the School of Dental Sciences and Dental Hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Career

We provide professional development in an area not taught in detail at undergraduate level. We have had students start this course with no previous experience of implant dentistry. They have then progressed to carry out implant surgery and restoration in their own dental practices.

Visit the Clinical Implant Dentistry - PGDip page on the Newcastle University website for more details!

Entry Requirements

You must have a primary dental qualification recognised by the General Dental Council (UK). You must have completed this at least two years before starting the course. You must be fully registered with the General Dental Council (UK) by the time the course starts.
