This a multi-modular intensive implant course which meets the General Dental Council- UK requirement in implant training in Britain and qualifies the course delegates to gain accredited Continual Professional Development (CPD) hours by the British Academy of Implant & Restorative Dentistry upon finishing the course academic and clinical requirements in addition to the course certificate by the British Academy upon passing the course written exam.
This unique course in Clinical & Evidence Based Dental Implantology is a clinical, multi-system, dental implant course which will enable the delegates to make an informed evidence based decisions in their day to day dental implant practice and will train delegates to place and restore dental implants according to the standards of the General Dental Council, Royal College of Surgeons and The British Academy of Implant & Restorative Dentistry.
Our successful delegates will also have the opportunity to obtain a University Post Graduate Diploma from San-Raffaele University following attending a 1 week bridging the gap course at the University in Milan exclusive to BAIRD successful participants
BAIRD Implant course will include:
- Seminars presented by prominent dental implants speakers.
- Surgical and Restorative implant hands – on training on models and animal heads ( surgical and restorative training offered by various dental implants systems, guided bone regeneration & soft tissue grafting).
- Course delegates will have the opportunity to attend an optional “ BAIRD Clinical hands- on surgical and restorative short courses” offered exclusively to BAIRD delegates at extra cost. This course will allow our delegates to place and restore implants on patients provided by the course , under direct supervision. *
1. Implant Basic Sciences: This module will enable you to understand the basic sciences underpinning the clinical management of dental implants, including head and neck anatomy, bone physiology, medical assessment, choice of anesthesia and antibiotics, preoperative and postoperative care (where appropriate to implant clinical practice) and patient selection.
2 Treatment planning , Radiology, Occlusion, Photography and MarketingCourse delegates will acquire a sound grounding in treatment planning, 2D & 3D radiography in implant dentistry as well as photography . Ethical marketing skills will also be discussed in relation to implant dentistry and tips and hints on running a successful implant referral practice will be discussed.
3 Basic Implant Surgical & Restorative Skills: Course delegates will acquire a sound grounding in surgical principles of dental implantology and the basic restorative aspects in restoring dental implants in selected patients requiring a single implant restorations. Concepts of implant occlusion in the partially dentate case will also be discussed. Also, the importance of 3d imaging and Stereolithographic models and surgical guides will be covered.
4 Evidence-based Implant Dentistry: This module will provide you with good grounding in the principles of evidence based practice and its importance in in implant dentistry . Up-to-date systematic reviews will be also presented illustrating various basic and advanced dental implantology techniques.
5 Advanced Implant Surgical & Restorative Techniques: You’ll acquire broader surgical techniques for placing dental implants in advanced and complex cases , managing soft tissues for dental implants in addition to guided bone regeneration and augmentation techniques. Advanced techniques in restoring dental implants will also be covered in this module such as implant bridges, over dentures and advanced aesthetic cases. Course delegates will be able to diagnose and categorise their patients into implant, advanced and complex restorative cases and manage them accordingly. Concepts of occlusion in the edentulous case will be explained.
6 Maintaing dental implants & managing complications : Local and systematic risk factors of implant failure, as well as surgical and restorative complications will covered in this module. Maintaining dental implants and preventing as well as managing peri implant mucositis and periimplantitis will be discussed .
Two Extra Optional Modules* : “Hands On Clinical Training & Clinical Attachment ” Course delegates will get the opportunity to spend time at our mentors’ practices in Bahrain, UAE, Jordan or United Kingdom ** , where they will receive one-to-one mentoring, attend live surgery and participate in treating implant patients. Simple implant surgical placement, restorative stages, advanced implant cases, bone grafting and sinus grafting cases will be presented in addition to various restorative implant cases. In addition to the clinical training session on surgical and restorative models and animal heads, you’ll be designated a clinical implant case to plan, treat, restore and follow up under direct supervision as part of the clinical course modules. Course delegates will be able to document these cases and use them as part of their implant training portfolio and log book.
* These optional modules will be exclusively offered to BAIRD Course delegates at an extra cost, covered by the course delegate.
** Providing the country regulations allow for course delegates to train and practice under direct supervision. It is course delegates responsibility to obtain approval and licence to practice in the county hosting the course. It is the course delegate responsibility to secure visa , cover for his/her flights and hotel accommodation
Assessment: To meet the General Dental Council and The British Academy of Implant & Restorative Dentistry requirements for dental implant training in the UK, and as part of preparing you for the Dental Implants Diploma exams from the British Academy of Implant & restorative Dentistry and The San Raffaele University, formative assessment and feedback will be provided in seminars and after case study discussions. Summative assessment will be carried out via a multiple choice questionnaire at the end of the course. Specific case-based discussion and structured feedback proformas will also be used to give formative assessment of your clinical case presentation at the end of the course.
