Course Description

This 3 day course takes a pragmatic approach to implant dentistry. Led by dual qualified, Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeon, Mr Jagtar Dhanda, delegates will be taken on a comprehensive journey on how to surgically place and restore dental implants with confidence. The emphasis is on both restorative and surgical perspectives. Throughout the duration of the course, delegates will increase their knowledge on latest surgical equipment and have the opportunity to work with a variety of materials and learn what to use when. Delegates will be coached in complex treatment options, such as sinus elevation and full arch implant surgery to optimise their potential as an implant surgeon!

Course Agenda

Day 1: Surgical & Restorative Considerations (08.30 – 17.00)
Delegates will develop their understanding of diagnostics and treatment planning and cover surgical techniques including flap design, suturing methods, CT grafting and high lip considerations. The theoretical aspect of the day will conclude with restorative techniques including digital photography, shade taking, soft tissue management and occlusion. Delegates will then have the chance to see PRF and Piezo demonstrations followed by hands on activities and live surgery.

Day 2: Advanced Implant Cases (08.30 – 17.00)
The theoretical aspect of day 2 will focus on more advanced techniques including sinus elevation, osseo-densification, guided surgery and software, implant-retained bridges and dentures as well as restorative workflows and techniques. Delegates will get the chance to put the theory into practice with hands-on activities and then watch a live surgical case of sinus elevation.

Day 3: Full Arch Immediate Loading (09.00 – 16.30)
The final day of the course will cover implant solutions for larger spaces including full arch restorative options. Delegates will observe a live surgery and cover laboratory techniques while  considering the provisional phase through to the final stage.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of the course delegates will:

  • Understand principles of surgical (soft and hard tissue reconstruction) and restorative perspectives in anterior high lip line cases
  • Understand principles of bone condensation and sinus lift surgery for the posterior maxilla
  • Understand workflow for full arch reconstruction and immediate loading
  • Understand how to optimise tissue handling with economy of movement and getting the best out of your assistant

Mr Steven Hinchliffe
BBDS PG Dip (Implantology)
After qualifying from Bristol University in 1997 with the Safford Miller prize in periodontology, I went on to work as an NHS associate at a practice in Warminster until 2002, when I joined the Houston Group of practices.
During my time at Houstons practice I have undertaken a number of advanced restorative courses, including the Harris Sidelsky year-long advanced restorative and occlusion course and the Chris Orr Cosmetic and restorative year course.
Following the completion of the Chris Orr course I obtained full membership to the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, which I have maintained to date. I am committed to post graduate education and attend many implant and restorative courses annually. My implant training started in 2006 with the Eddie Scher week long course, followed by a post graduate diploma in implantology from the University of Bristol in 2010. I have been placing implants since 2006 and have to date placed over 2000 implants. In 2008 I was voted Young Dentist of the year South West and Wales region in the Dentistry Awards, and in 2014 I won UK Dentist of the year at the Private dentistry Awards.I spend the vast majority of my clinical time concentrating on aesthetic dentistry, especially related to implant treatment.
