Mentoring in Implant Dentistry

Mentoring in Implant Dentistry: Good Practice Guidelines describes the nature of mentoring which should be undertaken in order to safely carry out implant dentistry following completion of an appropriate training course.

It complements Training Standards in Implant Dentistry, in particular its requirement to have an experienced clinician acting as a mentor. Designed to support educators and students, and to promote patient safety, the guidelines cover:

  • the experience, skills and qualities expected of a mentor
  • the experience, skills and qualities expected of a mentee
  • the mentoring process
  • the mentoring agreement

The document also sets out the component parts of three recommended means of work-based assessment during the mentoring process:

  • Case-Based Discussion
  • Direct Observation of Procedural Skills
  • Clinical Evaluation Exercise
