Personally, I’m the owner of a private clinic. As we need to stay competitive in the dental market, offering implant services can differentiate our dental practice and attract diverse patient demographics. This not only helps the practice stand out and thrive but also contribute to the success and growth of the practice by increasing its earning potential. Thus, the most important factor for me in a programme is one that prioritise on skill development and continuing education as it is imperative for the generation of new dental professionals to stay up to date with the latest advancements in implant dentistry.
The comprehensive Postgraduate Diploma in Implant Dentistry Programme at IMU significantly improved my confidence level when it comes to performing dental implant procedures in private practice. It gives us (students) the robust knowledge and practical skills needed to integrate implant successfully and confidently into our scope of practice.
This course covers almost all the aspects from fundamental knowledge and education about implantology including the latest technique, materials and technologies, hands-on training, risk management, patient evaluation and case studies.
The best part of this course is the mentorship programme. The specialists guide us in the placement of implant. Having a mentor as well as 1 to 1 guidance and support can greatly enhance our confidence.
My advice to future students is that you should seize the opportunity to join the course as it provides a continuing education and advance your career into the next level. Enhancing your skill set through the programme can improve your skills, leading to success in your practice, increase patient satisfaction rates and subsequently more o referrals and positive reviews.
