Dr Firas Daoudi the specialist at Smile Clinic has been recognised by the ADI UK as a specialist mentor to other general dentists in the field of dental implants both surgically and restorative.

ADI has been dedicated to providing on-going postgraduate education to the dental profession in the UK in order to extend awareness of dental implant treatment as an option for improving patient oral health.

The importance of mentoring came to the attention of the ADI as a result of a questionnaire to members conducted in 2005.

The results of the survey indicated an obvious demand for mentoring by members looking to further their implant training. Very little was being offered through any of the established providers.

It was also apparent that many experienced members already involved in implant mentoring were willing to participate in an ADI initiative to increase access for mentees throughout the UK.

The time was right for the ADI to take a more active role in putting the two groups in touch with each other.

The launch of the ADI Mentor Register comes at a time when the GDC is now actively recognising the importance of mentoring. See: “Doing implants? Make sure you’re up to scratch, warns GDC” and the GDC’s Policy Statement on Implantology.

The recently published update of the “Training Standards in Implant Dentistry” document stating that “before undertaking implant treatment, a dentist should be familiar with the procedures involved in clinical assessment, treatment planning, and the placement and restoration of implants in conjunction with an experienced implant clinician acting as a mentor, as part of a training course in implant dentistry”, further endorses the importance of the role mentoring.
