Implant Restorative Modular Course - Implant Hub

Implant Restorative Modular Course

Course Description

As implant dentistry becomes increasingly popular as a treatment option beyond the specialist dental practice, General Dental Practitioners are certain to come across a patient who has an implant placed that will need maintaining and at some point, for whatever reason, will need to be restored. This modular Implant Restorative programme has been designed to develop the restorative skills of the modern GDP. Over the duration of the course delegates will increase their knowledge and understanding of managing single to full-arch restorations whilst develop their skills through interactive hands-on workshops and live surgical demonstrations.
