Training and Refresher Courses

Scheduled courses
On-demand courses | Bespoke courses

Rob Whitehead has been running hands on courses in silicone prosthetics and associated materials and techniques since 2006

Courses are normally held at Artizan Medical although bespoke courses can be provided at your own unit.

Our courses are aimed at all levels of experience, and everyone can always learn something new! We aim to keep our course numbers small to enable maximum benefit to be gained from all attendees, especially as most courses are very practical based.

We strive to give the best and most informative information gained from years of personal experience in the very challenging world of Prosthetic Rehabilitation. For courses that use Invited Lecturers, we again aim to seek the best and most experienced in their specialist field.

Where applicable, all of our courses are organised and run to meet the criteria of the General Dental Council. This allows delegates to use the points as verifiable or non verifiable Continual Professional Development depending on the candidates preference and its relevance to their current practice.

Due to the nature of our courses and the many different materials, companies and Universities that we are currently in research projects with, some of our courses may be sponsored by them in order to keep delegate costs down. This does not mean however that we will be biased towards their products. We only use the best products and those that we know from years of experience actually work. We are not affiliated to any company and so can bring you details of materials that do the job in hand best.

Continual Professional development

In order for delegates to gain Continual Professional Development points (CPD), all courses are organised and run to meet the relevant criteria.
