This 12 day dental implant course is a comprehensive practical evidence based programme, with half of the teaching time delivered as live surgery and prosthetics. Training is provided by a team of experienced implant practitioners from the UK and around the world, in dedicated teaching facilities in Central London and meets the required educational criteria for verifiable CPD.
In order to be a predictable and competent implant practitioner, it is important that training should not only include the theory and evidence basis of Dental Implantology, but also the guidance of experienced practitioners on diagnosis, treatment planning, patient communication, medico-legal and consent aspects as well as the business of implant dentistry itself, and we aim to help you with all of these aspects.
As far as hands-on practical surgical and prosthodontic treatment stages, we believe that you will be able to take part on live aspects in all aspects of implant dentistry from the simple to the complex procedures.

Dental Business Coach
Not only does Pree help owner-managed businesses grow – but with his “financial advisor” background, he’s also able to help them invest their profits to maximum advantage. His passion for personal development, human excellence and business growth has helped his clients achieve success well beyond what they’d believed possible.
Working mainly with privately owned companies and high net worth individuals, he not only helps them to focus their business building activities but he also enables them to maximise those profits through effective tax and investment planning.
Pree’s business career started when he was a manager of a group of several independent pharmacies. While developing these businesses, his knowledge and skills in business and people leadership increased significantly. Subsequently, his keen interest in the stock market and investments took him along a successful new career path as a financial advisor.
Pree is equipped with a gentle humour, an uncanny ability to get to the nub of the situation and can pinpoint – with laser sharp accuracy – the steps that each individual business owner needs to take (and the personal pitfalls they must avoid) if they’re to turn their early dreams into real, long term sustainable success.
Our Course Sponsors
To enable the general practitioner & their team to deliver implant dentistry to their patients using evidence based protocols with predictable outcomes.
To teach practitioners to safely provide implant dentistry as part of a comprehensive surgical & restorative treatment plan.
To allow general practitioners to assist in implant dentistry procedures within the practice arena & to be able to carry out their own cases under the guidance of course tutors, or to be present at referral cases to experience & assist with more advanced cases.
Under mentoring guidelines introduced by the GDC, it is now necessary for all dental school graduates to have suitable postgraduate training prior to undertaking implant dentistry.
The General Dental Council released a policy statement on implantology that fundamentally changed the face of implant dentistry in the UK, in 2008.
This statement was issued ‘in response to concerns raised with the GDC about the practice of implant dentistry by general dental practitioners’ and makes it clear that without the completion of an extensive, organised and mentored training program the GDC does not consider that a GDP is suitably qualified to provide implant dentistry. Failure to prove that the necessary training has been received could result in disciplinary proceedings against a dentist by the GDC.
