What do delegates need to know or bring?
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 King’s College London 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.
