Mentoring Services

In addition to providing in-practice travelling specialists for implant placement in your practice, we also offer a personal Mentoring service. In accordance with GDC guidelines, we believe wholeheartedly in personally supporting our course delegates and any dentists who have undergone implant training on other courses, through at least their first 15-20 implant cases. This will ensure they have enough experience to sit the Diploma in Implant Dentistry examinations at the RCS Edinburgh.

We also provide continued and unlimited mentoring support through all levels of implant case complexity.
This means that whether you are a newcomer to the world of Implant Dentistry, or are an experienced hand, we can Mentor you through any number of cases as you require

All our Mentors are highly experienced clinicians with extensive practical and educational experience in placing implants to complex levels. Each undergoes a selection process to ensure all reach the same minimum standard in Mentoring and Tutoring
