His areas of interest include all aspects of dentistry related to dental implants and fixed and removable prosthodontics.

Of particular interest has been his involvement in digital dentistry. He is particularly interested in computer-guided surgery for the simplification of surgical placement and restoration of dental implants. This is facilitated by using 3D x-rays in conjunction with virtual implant planning software, intraoral scans, 3 D printing of surgical guides and milling of CAD CAM restorative options.

Nick is a Straumann accredited mentor and a member of the ADI. Nick is a fellow of the ITI, where he is also a ITI study club director. He has presided over the LDSC and was a founding member of the NZDSL. He also is a past president (and President Elect) of the Reading Branch of the BDA (2012 + 2018).

Guided Surgery: The New Practice Standard for Oral Implantology

Location: Online

Guided surgery for implant placement is not a new concept in implant dentistry. Restoratively driven implant placement is a well-accepted and often quoted dogma, when clinicians consider implant positioning. However, guided surgery, which I believe to be the apogee of restoratively driven implant planning and placement still struggles to find wide scale acceptance.

In this presentation, I will put forward the case for computer guided surgery. Discussing the benefits of planning your surgery virtually before going to the patient’s mouth and the clinical advantages of guided surgery. Before looking to the future and how this fast-evolving technology may look.

Learning objectives:
-Learn how planning your implant cases virtually is a benefit to the surgeon, restoring colleague (if different to the surgeon) and patient.
-Learn how using guided surgery protocols can simplify all aspects of implant dentistry.
-Learn how guided surgery can be used to increase profit.
-Learn how patients benefit from guided surgery
