BioHorizons is proud to support this MSc course with ICE Postgraduate Dental Institute and Hospital.

The MSc in Dental Implantology course is aimed to equip dental clinicians with core clinical skills and competency in both the restorative and surgical aspects of implant dentistry, through a combination of clinical support and academic teaching in accordance with the GDP/FGDP Training Standards in Implant Dentistry.

This masters course is accredited through the University of Salford and has been specifically designed to take the stress away of finding patients and provide a mentor to help delegates complete their first few cases with confidence. All the required equipment, patients, and mentorship is provided to help delegates treat a diverse range of implant cases (min. 4 patients) within their comfort zone, and gain the practical skills and competency in patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment. All this will be done under supervision of a clinical mentor within the purpose-built facilities.
