Julian Caplan, Principal of Aviva Dentistry, a BACD Accredited dentist and President of The Digital Dentistry School, recently completed the level PG Cert in Implant Dentistry with Ucer Education. Sharing his experience of the course, he says:
“My main reason for taking a PG certificate in implant dentistry was to ensure I was up-to-date with current research and clinical techniques. There is a vast amount of research published every year in this field and it is very difficult to determine which papers I should base my implant dentistry on.
“I had heard of Professor Ucer and knew that he was a key professor within the UK implant dentistry arena. There were also a number of excellent lecturers who were involved in this programme who I wished to learn from, and this ultimately led me to take the course with Ucer Education.
“The course content covered all the current knowledge required for simple to advanced implant treatment planning, with well organised lecturers. The lecturers were engaging and sometimes challenging, which created an excellent learning environment for delegates. The training took approximately a year with lectures spaced a month apart, providing time to review articles on upcoming subjects. The final challenge was to write an essay on a chosen subject and present a short power point/keynote presentation with questions from Professor Ucer and Dr Croft.
“All the lecturers and supporting staff were very approachable and would always try to help whenever it was required. The training certainly delivered on all aspects of a PG Cert in Implant Dentistry course that I was expecting and looking for. Having successfully completed the course, I now have a formal qualification in implantology, which gives me confidence to continue developing my skills and experience in the area.
“This course is ideal for both dentists who are starting out in implant dentistry and those who already have experience but are seeking validation for the techniques the they are using in their practice. I would absolutely recommend it.”
