Just back from a long day mentoring two colleagues in London. Both of them are studying on the Royal College Implant Diploma Course, and have me as their tutor.
The first case was the colleague’s first bone graft, which is a reasonably daunting procedure, and one where mistakes are painful for the patient. We’d done one of Wednesday in the practice, so I was well rehearsed for my part. In the event it went well.
The second colleague was placing his first two implants on his father-in-law, so again failure would have had repercussions of a wider nature. Fortunately we succeeded in placing two implants in the correct position without any major trauma.
We’re filming a case this morning to compose a teaching video. I’ll let you know how it goes.
