Q. Do I need to provide my own patients?
At the residency you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that your patients/implants/materials are provided and prepared for you. We appreciate having to find your own patients to train is difficult. We hear from so many of our students how they regretted taking courses that meant they needed to find patients.
You do also have the option of treating your own patients with mentorship in addition to this if you choose.
Q. What is the facility like in Brazil?
You’ll treat patients in a dedicated implant training & research hospital which will feel very much like a university hospital environment. You’ll work hard and spend a lot of time on clinic with exceptionally experienced & friendly implant surgeons.
Q. Do I have access to mentoring during and after my implant training course?
Once booked, you can make use of mentoring right away. Even before the residency you can start placing implants in your own patients at our centre near London, or with a mentor at your own practice depending on where you’re based. We encourage you to profit and earn back your investment as soon as possible.
Even after the course we’ll be on hand for advice, help with treatment planning and hand-holding through surgeries can be arranged. We take a lot of pride in our course being one of few where students feel confident placing implants when finished.
Q. When should I book my flight?
We don’t advise that you book any flights until the course starts. You’ll meet and get to know your colleagues on the course and often groups of our students travel together.
Q. Where will we stay when away at the Brazil residency?
We’ll recommend the hotel closer to the time. Fortunately accommodation in Brazil is relatively cheap. Information will be provided closer to the time of the residency. We do highly recommend our students stay together which will make transport to and from the facility, make it safe, and make it more fun!
Q. Who teaches the modules in the UK?
Each module will be taught by a leader in that field. Our ethos is that you learn from the very best. We’ve had some top speakers at the course over the years and are confident you’ll be very pleased with the quality of teaching.
Q. Which implant system will I learn?
Once you’ve finished the course you’ll have the knowledge to distinguish between the various implant designs and systems. Our approach is to give you the knowledge needed to use any implant system.
Many courses teach a specific implant system and therefore are restricted by the companies in what they’re able to say and teach. We want you to be able to use any system put in front of you by understanding how each system works.
Q. How many students will there be?
We restrict our intake to 14 students so that you get specific guidance and personalised teaching. It’s a good idea to book early if you’re serious about learning to place implants.
Q. What do I need to take to the residency?
Almost everything is provided for you. You will need your own basic surgical kit, but your implant kits, implants, biomaterials and patients are all provided. You’ll even receive personalised surgical scrubs.
Q. Are there any requirements to do the course?
We will need a copy of your dental degree. To place implants in the UK you must have adequate indemnity. Apart from that, just a willingness to learn!
Q. How much can I expect to earn from implants?
Implants are a highly profitable treatment with a hugely growing market. Whether you work in a private or NHS clinic you’ll be surprised how many people take up treatment. It’s vital for consent purposes that implants are discussed when appropriate when discussing missing teeth and we’ll also teach you how to discuss implants with your patients.
Many of our students go on to place 30-50 implants per years and some have done many more.
