Dental Implant Restorative Course with Mark Skimming

Course Description

Implant dentistry is a prosthetically driven treatment option, with the increase in uptake of private treatment, never has it been more essential for the modern GDP to learn how to restore and maintain implants.

This modular course has been designed to reflect the demands of today’s patient. Over the duration of the course delegates will increase their knowledge of the latest restorative techniques and materials and learn how to develop their restorative skills and confidence in offering implant dentistry to their patients.
