Delegates should have completed at least 20 implant cases and be familiar with the theory and rationale of basic bone augmentation around implants.
Loupes and a light are regarded as mandatory for the course and the clinical practice of these techniques thereafter.
Scrubs and protective clothing and disposables for the hands-on cadaver sessions are normally provided by MSSSC but delegates are encouraged to bring their own scrubs and washable clogs or footwear if they desire.
Prompt arrival on the cadaver day will maximise time spent on the practical aspects.
There is normally a dinner on the Friday evening after the cadaver hands-on day and we would be delighted if delegates attend with the whole group.
Under no circumstances is any photography or video permitted in the cadaver rooms

Thank you very much for the whole experience. It was of the best courses I have ever gone to. Great way of teaching. I feel that I’ve learned a lot and I cannot wait to put it into practice. Thank you again.
Dr Aniko Lazar
A well organised and delivered course. It is provided me with skills, knowledge and most importantly the confidence to perform sinus surgery. One of the best courses I’ve attended in years and delivered by two very great dentists supported by two very nice and approachable ENT consultants.
Dr Atish Chummun
Excellent course. Covered everything I wanted and more. The hands-on element was fantastic. Would definitely recommend.
Dr Brad Thornton
I have really enjoyed the course and will definitely recommend this to my friends. The course lectures were very comprehensive and very well presented in a very interesting way. The practical session on the cadaveric specimens really helped me to understand the principles and clinical delicacy required for sinus lifting procedures. My understanding of the subject has been greatly deepened and I would feel confident in carrying out the procedure…overall a fantastic and informative course and well worth the outlay.
Dr Mark Jensen
This course has demystified open sinus lifts for me. Lectures excellent, cadaver dissection extremely useful, great live surgery and discussion. Great hospitality from the team throughout.
Dr Ray McNamara
Probably the best course I have ever been on. Well organised, good venues,
great practical session, very informative and completely relevant to my practice. I would definitely recommend this course.
Dr Cathy Jenkins
I would just like to pass on my thanks for arranging such a great course. The
venue was fantastic. Those delivering the content were enthusiastic, friendly and approachable and clearly had extensive knowledge and experience of implant
provision. I left the course feeling inspired and ready to put into practice some of the skills learned. I will thoroughly recommend any event organised by your team to practitioners who are considering further education in the field of implant dentistry.
Dr Paul Hudson
Could I also say how impressed and pleased I was with your course. The combination of lectures, practical and live surgery were extremely well thought out and delivered. It was great that you were prepared to share all your hard-gained knowledge so generously, even extending to showing us your successes and
failures with free and frank discussion about what you actually did to solve the problems involved.
Dr Michael Atkinson
In my career spanning 34 years, I can say with conviction that I can hardly recall a few that were as good and of a high standard as the one you have just done.
Dr Vasant Patel
I would like to send my thanks and congratulations on a most wonderful course.
It is rare that I leave a course with such a gain in knowledge and can honestly say that it is the only course that I have ever attended that has left me with a completely new attitude and enthusiasm toward dentistry.
Dr Jeremy Hill
Very well organised and very high standard of knowledgeable lecturers with excellent experience. Excellent course with very friendly and experienced presenters and backup staff. I would fully endorse this course as it accomplishes exactly what it says it does and is very good value.
Dr Chris King
Thank you for a wonderful and very informative three days. Koray and Cemal and ENT Abbad and Sarah between them provide a full and complete spectrum of clinical and dentolegal requirements to safely place implants with sinus augmentation. Couldn’t recommend the course enough.
