Implantology is a complex subject that in the last decade has become a vital part of mainstream dentistry. With the increasing demand from patients, more dentists need to pursue continued study to equip themselves with the necessary skills and competence to tackle a range of different cases.
We have partnered with the University of Portsmouth to bring you the Certificate in Implantology, a 6-month programme designed to give dentists the confidence to start placing implants and ultimately, improve their earning potential.
Students will learn crucial topics such as bone regeneration from leading experts in the field of implantology, and will take part in face-to-face practical sessions where they will place implants and observe placement.
As part of this programme, dentists will carry out 150 hours (15 credits) of recommended and highly-recommended CPD online, which can be counted towards 5-year cycles for UK-based dentists.
Unit 1 - Foundations in Implant Dentistry (including 2-day Practical Surgical Training)
Unit 2 - Legal and Ethical Issues
Unit 3 - Communications & Complaints Handling
Unit 4 - Safeguarding
Unit 5 - Treatment Planning in Implant Dentistry (Including 2-day Practical Surgical Training)
Unit 6 - Record Keeping
Unit 7 - Dental Radiology
Unit 8 - Oral Cancer
Unit 9 - Surgical & Restorative Principles of Implantology (Including 2-day Practical Surgical Training)
Unit 10 - Disinfection & Decontamination
Unit 11 - Medical Emergencies
Unit 12 - The Reflective Practitioner (Strategies for Life-long Learning)
There will be three 2-day practical workshops over the course of the 6 months during which you will practice placing implants and observing placement.
The programme will mostly be delivered online through live webinars, recorded lectures and e-Learning. There will be instances where you will need to travel to take part in practical hands-on sessions, during which you will practice placing implants and observing placements.

This is the most interactive unit, in which students will share with
their course mates and lecturers their own clinical cases and the
application of clear aligner therapy in their practice.
Students will share clinical cases as they progress, and comment
on other students’ cases using the online forum and thoughtshare
exercises, and may choose to seek feedback on the clinical
case selected for their final assessment.
At the end of the unit, a final residential session will be held to
allow selected students to present a complete case study to
other students and lecturers.
To provide the students with a professional network of colleagues
and mentors to critically support and advise the application of
the skills learned in unit 2. Students will also have the opportunity
to receive feedback on the clinical case they intend to present as
part of their final assessment.

The prerequisite to deliver dental implants in a correct three-dimensional position is to have sufficient volume of bone.
Moderate to severe bone defects are quite common and therefore constitute a significant challenge to the clinician.
Skilled use of regenerative materials can overcome the patients’ morbidity issues associate to the use of large autogenous grafts. This masterclass
program provides the knowledge and the core skills to allow dentists to manage sever alveolar bone defects with or without dental implants with
the use of Guide Bone Regeneration. In addition, the program provides in-depth knowledge of regenerative techniques to save periodontally severe
compromised teeth. This will enable dentists to treat more patients and provide them with cutting edge technology to treat the most challenging cases.
• Understand the principles of guided bone regeneration and guided
• Undertake expert patient diagnosis for vertical and horizontal
• Make informed choices in graft selection and treatment planning
• Apply the latest techniques to reconstruct peri-implant soft and hard
tissues around dental implants or around teeth.
• Devise effective post-operative protocols.
This Masterclass programme provides the knowledge and core skills required to manage severe vertical bone defects and treat them using
Guided Bone Regeneration. The use of such grafts can significantly reduce patient morbidity, restoring adequate bone volume to allow the
placing of implants without compromise on positioning. In addition, the Masterclass provides the knowledge to reconstruct lost periodontal
tissues around previously diseased teeth. This enables to save compromised teeth and avoid extraction.
The Masterclass is delivered in small group workshops ensuring a very high
level of individual support and guidance.
All students will benefit from access to a wealth of on-line resources, being
part of an alumni group to enable ongoing professional development and the
possibility to perform a live surgery in practice by operating on a patient who
requires severe bone regeneration in a time frame of 12 months after the masterclass.
1. The participants will learn how to fully assess the patient for a correct diagnosis and case selection following specific guidelines.
2. The participants will know when and how they can save a tooth by means of periodontal regeneration.
3. The participants will experience with their own hands the challenge of a vertical bone augmentation surgery, with particular
emphasis on the precise steps of the surgical procedures
4. The participant will be able to learn all the tips and tricks that make GBR successful and learn how to avoid surgical pitfalls.
5. The participant will become confident in treating patients with bone defects by applying the GBR technique.
6. The participant will learn how to handle the soft tissues during GBR which are crucial to achieve success.
