COURSE DESCRIPTION

This limited number (12 maximum), intensive 4 day modular course will allow participants to develop more effective perio management protocols in general practice. It will cover all aspects of perio management, for both teeth and implants, from diagnosis and assessment to non-surgical and surgical treatments, covering along the way antimicrobial use, furcations and perio-endo lesions, using case studies and other exercises. Uniquely, implant management will be covered alongside tooth management as we have found that this is more logical than covering implants separately. The second half of the course is entirely hands-on using the pig jaw model. The course is highly interactive and participants are encouraged to bring along their own cases for group discussion.
