Blended Clinical Implant Training (Nigeria)
Much of the Postgraduate Dental Implant Training available in Nigeria, is organized and run by dental companies that are most interested in marketing their products or by individuals trained by the companies. The aim of this independent training programme is to equip the dentist interested in Implant Dentistry with the knowledge and basic skills they need to place and restore most brands of Dental Implants to the standard expected of their colleagues in developed countries. It will provide a sound scientific grounding and clinical training in Implant Dentistry, develop graduates who are confident in incorporating dental implant supported prostheses into general dental practice and also to teach students how to place and restore dental implants from single teeth to full arch cases.
The Certificate Course in Dental Implantology is offered by the City of London Dental School (COLDS) which is a Postgraduate University offering certificate, Diploma and MSc courses in various fields in Dentistry. Majority of the instruction would be delivered online in four modules. This would be supplemented by face to face workshops delivered by Dr. Irene Amrore, that would take place twice in the certificate year at two locations in Nigeria, Abuja, and Lagos.
Integral to the course is its practical component focusing on the surgical and prosthetic aspects of implant dentistry. This one-year part-time course is designed mainly for general dental practitioners and specialists dentists who are interested in the field of dental implantology. The course can be extended into a second year for those who want to be mentored in completing 3 clinical cases, which would be presented for assessment, in which case they would obtain a Diploma in Implant Dentistry from COLDS
