This hands-on, fully clinical training course is held at the Mentee School at the ICE Postgraduate Dental Institute & Hospital under the ICE Mentor Faculty. Students will be assigned a mentor under whose supervision treatment will be carried out on patients provided by the ICE Postgraduate Dental Institute.

Entry requirements

Students who have completed the Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) in Implant Dentistry and fulfilled the academic learning objectives as set out by the GDC/FGDP Training Standards in Implant Dentistry (2016) will be eligible to start the clinical skills development programme. They will also require full GDC registration and appropriate indemnity cover for implants.


Students will develop full clinical experience in restorative and surgical implantology using the latest in digital dentistry workflows and technologies. Special emphasis will be given to patient assessment and treatment planning, diagnostic imaging, implant selection and restorative design criteria using three major implant systems.

Course outline

Students will have the opportunity to treat patients from the ICE Postgraduate Dental Institute, to examine, assess, treatment-plan and provide surgical and restorative treatment phases.

They will be required to complete a clinical portfolio which will be assessed under mentor supervision.

Upon completion of the course, students will receive certification for Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) and restorative and surgical application of dental implant techniques.


Mentee School is normally one full day a month over 10 months but can be extended by prior arrangement.

Students will be expected to complete 10+ cases during the initial training at the Mentee School. There is the opportunity to extend training to include more cases.


Upon successful completion of the course and gaining core clinical experience under supervision, students are encouraged and supported to take up further academic training in implantology by enrolling on a recognised Postgraduate Diploma/MSc programme course or sit the examination for the FRCS Postgraduate Diploma in Implant Dentistry. Dozens of our course participants have gained higher degrees such as diplomas/MScs in Implant Dentistry at recognised UK universities after completing this course.

Students will benefit from more than 24 years’ clinical, research and teaching experience provided by Prof. Cemal Ucer and Ucer Education’s faculty of lecturers.

For peace of mind, Ucer’s practice support team and clinical advisory service will be available for course participants to ease the uncertainty of carrying out implant treatment in their own practices.
