Abstract

The aim of this study was to ascertain knowledge on current teaching of implant dentistry in the undergraduate curriculum of Dental Schools in the UK. Information on the teaching modalities, including year of introduction of implant dentistry into undergraduate curriculum, departments involved in teaching, format of teaching, use of adjunctive teaching aids, and types of implant systems used in undergraduate teaching was collected by means of a questionnaire, which was sent to all undergraduate dental schools in the UK. Based on a 100% response rate, the findings indicate that all dental schools in the UK reported that they included dental implantology in their undergraduate curriculum; however there were marked variations in the content and delivery of the teaching.
