Covering the following GDC Development Outcomes: C

• Provide up-to-date information to their patients
• Understand what options are available for their patients
• Know how to treat those patients who already have dental implants.
To keep practitioners up to date on the latest developments in this important field Professional Dentistry Midlands will be hosting an Implant Conference. Two carefully selected speakers will deliver presentations on different subjects relating to dental implantology. Whether you are new to the field or are regularly placing implants, there will be something for you.
