Implant Site Preparation – Nigeria Series

The first of our workshop series was held in Benin, Lagos, Ibadan, PortHarcourt, Warri, and Abuja.

Over 200 participants attended the event.

It has been established there is a need for Nigerian Dentists to increase their knowledge and proficiency in dental implant dentistry. ( Akeredolu et al 2007).

Dental implants are a valuable treatment to replace teeth and are considered an optimal solution to restore peoples’ mouths. The clinical success rate of dental implant treatment is high. 

The adoption of this therapy is being hampered by the fact that a large number of practicing dentists have never placed dental implants since graduating from dental school.  This is due to not having proper training in the field.

Healing Hands Dental Society’s Education Consortium is organizing a dental webinar series and hands-on activities.

Phase 1: One Day Implant Site Preparation Course

Phase 2:  Two-day workshop that will involve didactics and hands-on sessions.

Phase 3: Dental Implant Master Class

Phase 4: ICOI Certification Exam Preparation
