Periodontics and Implantology are perhaps the most basic prerequisites on a CV of a modern dentist. In recent years, an increasing number of doctors are seeking to practice Implantology which is inextricably linked to Periodontology. The use of implants in dentistry is not always a detailed part of the material covered in undergraduate studies. The elderly population is growing steadily and the need for therapeutic solutions for fixed teeth by using implants is increasing. Therefore, many dentists want to learn more about the use of Periodontics and Implantology when treating their patients by taking a short course in this field.
This diploma program is taught in two ways, an online theoretical course and an in-person clinical training course. Both are taught by experienced tutors and clinicians, one week per semester (two
weeks) where participants will be able to learn and master the general applications of Periodontology and Implantology techniques and treatments.
Dentists actively participate in a wide range of hands-on treatments within the clinic which gives them the opportunity to better understand all the contemporary techniques in perio, GBR, GTR and to be able to successfully tackle complicated cases in Periodontics and Dental Implantology.
The program is aimed at qualified doctors, who upon having completed this course will have gained solid knowledge in this field and will have mastered all of the appropriate advanced techniques. The tutors all of whom have a background in clinical applications and innovations come from the best academic institutions and are willing to share their pioneering knowledge with students.
The duration of this course is for 1 year with 60 ECTS.
The tutors, all of whom have a background in clinical applications and innovation, come from the best

In-person clinical training
Students will learn in practice by participating in hands-on and live treatments of cases within the clinic. They will also be asked to perform different techniques in GBR and GTR as well as different types of growth factors and stem cell applications and to handle difficult clinical cases. This is the part that makes the doctor a leader in their field and equips them with the necessary skills to be able to handle and treat difficult cases.
