The programme’s first year is built on 5 modules related to implant dentistry:
2. therapy planning and patient selection,
3. surgical procedures,
4. prosthetic procedures,
5. maintenance and advanced implant procedures.
Each module is educated in a one week session by a team of experts in the field. Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, computer exercises, preclinical training sessions, hands-on workshops, live surgeries and a cadaver course. The second year only focuses on treatment planning and implant surgeries. Students have to perform a minimum number of specific implant cases, under strict one-to-one supervision.
The postgraduate studies in oral implantology provide experienced dental professionals with a foundation to start with implant therapy. This includes selection of appropriate cases, treatment planning, perform basic implant surgery, prosthetics and maintenance. After graduation students are equipped to identify and address simple cases and may continue to develop expertise by additional experience and advanced training to address more advanced/complex cases.
