The first group of dentists started their structured implant training programme at the UK based PID-Academy on February 24th, 2014.
These fully qualified dentists will refine their clinical skills over the next one and a half years in order to safely carry out quality dental implant treatment with clinical competence in accordance with GDC standards.
A vast component of the implant training is hands-on and progresses from plastic models to animals to human models and finally to patients under close supervision by experienced Faculty members. The first module focused on the management of soft tissues in terms of flap design and suturing followed by familiarisation with specialist implant related instruments and equipment whilst placing implants into mannequins.

The entire interactive unit also focused on treatment strategies for a range of patients. The first step towards successful implant treatment.
The enthusiasm of the group is such that patients have already been recruited for treatment and the assessment process commenced. In keeping with the tried and tested protocols, observation of clinical treatment has already been carried out.
Patients can also register online to benefit from high-quality implant treatment at affordable costs. Special conditions apply.
