Whether or not you place dental implants, having an understanding of bone grafting principles is essential in modern
dental practice. Such understanding will improve treatment planning decision-making and better facilitate evidencebased
discussions with patients. The indications and clinical benefits of ridge preservation and minor bone grafting will
be discussed; the overall aim being on improving clinical outcomes and reducing risk to both patients and practitioners.
For those clinicians with a surgical interest, a thorough understanding of biological principles, available biomaterials, and
surgical techniques in bone grafting are fundamental for safe, predictable, and successful treatment. This workshop will
include a hands-on session, allowing clinicians to practice both procedures under the guidance of Dr Wendy Gill. Learning is
best when we can take you out of the normal environment into the beautiful world of Bunker Bay.
