Sarah Lansdown, our treatment co-ordinator and referrals manager, has just gained her Nursing Sedation Certificate.
This tough course has enabled Sarah both to be involved in the clinical side of patient sedation management but more importantly to help nervous patients with their decision making process when opting for dental treatment.
This is a totally new course for 2013 which will allow dentists to have an intensive week placing dental implants in pre-selected patients.
This course is limited to four dentists and is designed for dentists who have a lot of theoretical knowledge of dental implants but would like to gain some intensive surgical experience.
The four delegates will work in pairs. The pairs will alternate between being an operator and an assistant, with one- to-one tutor supervision at all times. Each pair of dentists will treat eight patients and place a minimum of eight implants implants (four each).
All of the 16 patients will be presented to the course participants. Each patient will be supplied with a full history, radiographs, CT scans where relevant, diagnosis and treatment plan along with surgical guides, clinical photographs and study models. The delegates will select their implants and plan their surgical approach with the tutors.
Days 2,3,4 and 5
The delegates will work in pairs in a dedicated implant theatre along with their tutor. Each delegate will place one implant each day and supervise for one implant each day.
Included in the course are:
All grafting materials
Top of the range implant kits and surgical instruments
Gala dinner on the Wednesday night
Dine and learn with your tutors on two evenings

The Dental Implant Clinic’s first Basic Implant Training Course for nurses was held on 10th May. Nurses from all over the South West attended. This course is unique because it is written by experienced implant nurses and therefore views the various stages of the patients’ implant journey from a nursing perspective.
As The Dental Implant Clinic is the largest implant centre in the South West, the course gives nurses a realistic view of how to organise their own implant set up.
The next Basic Implant Nurses’ Course will be held on Saturday 12th July 2014. For more information and booking information click here: Dental Implant Nurses’ Course
Strong gums are vitally important prior to the successful placement of dental implants and any other dental treatment. Our periodontal lead is Fernando Gonzalez-Eriksson, whose specialist 3-year training in Periodontics was at the world renowned Eastman Dental Institute in London. He joined The Dental Implant Clinic in 2013, and he has already treated many patients with gum disease.
Many of The Dental Implant Clinic’s team attended The University of Bristol Masterclass on 21st November. The Dental Implant Clinic has now been a University of Bristol Teaching Centre for ten years. During that time we have helped to train two hundred implant dentists. By teaching others we are constantly improving our own techniques and keeping at the forefront of our subject.
