The Bath Spa Dentistry mentoring programme is available to delegates who have completed the Implantology Year Programme. Delegates have the opportunity to visit the Bath Spa Dentistry practice to observe live surgery, or have the option of Dr McNulty attending their practice (at an additional cost) to oversee procedures and assist with complex cases.

"Dermot showed how the placement of the implant itself is technically easy, and that good treatment planning is the real key to success.  The combination of looking at cases from start to finish and the experience of live surgery was very useful.  To see how Dermot thought on his feet was invaluable.

My own patients will benefit from better all-round care and I am more confident to talk to them about implants as a treatment option.

To dentists thinking of training to place implants, I would say ‘go on this course’.  It is thorough and delivered in a flexible, laid back style."
Dr Gurs Sehmi, The Kensington Clinic, London

"The content ticked all the boxes for me.
Training was in a small group and we were able to ask questions freely. I found this particularly beneficial and it enabled me to really get to grips with the concepts. Dermot is very hospitable and gives you the opportunity to experience further live surgery outside the programme.
The course gave me a solid base of understanding. My patients will have the convenience and continuity of treatment at their own local practice. The business will benefit financially and I am keeping up with the latest professional skills."
Dr Matt Jones, Ebenezer House Dental Care, Swindon

"I enrolled onto the Bath Spa Dentistry Year Programme because I would like to offer my own patients the option of dental implants, by being able to treat simple cases at my practice. Attending the course has enabled me to develop an understanding of how implants are placed and how they are restored. Confidence is the key - knowing how to deal with all the circumstances that may arise. Dermot McNulty's wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for his work is inspiring, and I have the utmost faith in his skills. Bath Spa Dentistry and DENTSPLY Friadent have provided fabulous support and their approach has suited the way I like to learn. I am learning lots of additional things as well as how to place implants."

Dr Brett Garner, Serenity Dental, Fareham

"I am already restoring implants and would like to be able to manage simple surgical and restorative cases in my practice in the future. The comprehensive year long training is giving me the time to reflect upon the way I am working and will also provide me with a good insurance policy. Dermot McNulty has excellent presentation skills and the overall approach is very good. The programme even covers complex bone grafts and I have found the soft tissue management component particularly helpful."

Dr Matthew Pendle, The Bosham Clinic, Fishbourne, West Sussex
