Sharing implant knowledge

When the new clinic opens I plan to organise lectures and seminars for other dentists to share in the knowledge about implant work.

I’ll invite some of the leading UK and international implant experts to participate in the presentations.

I currently look after a lot of patients who are referred by their dentists to me for implant work. Their aftercare is hugely important and part of the learning process we’ll organise is helping these dentists to understand exactly what the patient needs going forward after the implant procedure has been completed.

Earlier this year I was on the lecture circuit in Glasgow lecturing to dentists who are training in implant dentistry. This was organised by Stephen Jacobs, implantologist and President of the Association of Dental Implantology.

My topic was computer guided surgery. I was very honoured to be invited to conduct the lecture.  Back in 2004 I  was one of the first surgeons in the UK to be trained in the Nobel Biocare guided surgery concept.  I underwent this training in Philadelphia at the renowned Balshi/Wolfinger Prosthodontics Intermedica Clinic.  Computer guided surgery can offer a quick and accurate method for the predictable and atraumatic placement of dental implant fixtures.
