DENTAL IMPRESSION TAKING COURSE
Our Dental Impression Taking Course is a very practical program, which will take students half a day to complete. GDC (General Dental Council) registered Dentists will be able to improve and expand their dental ability. At the end of this course, learners will be formally assessed, and those who are successful will be issued with a CPD certificate on the same day for achieving the aims and objectives of the course.
Students who participate in this programme will be given a PEP (Practical Experience Portfolio) where they will keep track of their activities, which should include a range of supervised activities and experiences on different clients. Feedback should be given by a suitably qualified, registered professional, in order for any work to be valid. Students will have 3 months to fill out the portfolio and once it has been completed and assessed, the certification can officially be issued.

Dental Impressions are a great practice and can assist Dentists in many ways. They are used to create a replica mould of your patient’s teeth.
This mould can then be used to help the dentist when anything needs to be fitted to the patients teeth. This can range from Dentures to Braces and Retainers.
Dental Impressions do not take long at all. Once the tray is in the patient’s mouth, it will only need to stay there for around 1-2 minutes while it sets and creates a mould of the patient’s teeth.
