Continuing dental education is of critical importance in the careers of dental professionals as techniques and best practices are constantly evolving through innovation and research worldwide. It is imperative for dentists to attend several continuing education workshops, classes and conferences every year in order to stay abreast of the latest advancements and findings, thereby positioning themselves to be able to deliver the best possible professional care to their patients and to their societies.
“In order to equip dentists with the necessary skill sets to thrive in dental practice, Rajan Dental Institute is initiating a full-fledged continuing dental education institute with regular courses in new fields that are often out of purview of traditional training programs. Our key differentiator in this space is our ability to attract globally renown lecturers through our international tie-ups and unwavering commitment to excellence over the last several decades.” says Dr. Gunaseelan Rajan, Medical Director of the Rajan Dental Institute. With a reputation for quality demonstrated by the Rajan Dental – Malo Clinic practice and a passion for education and knowledge transfer epitomized by its founders Dr. B. P. Rajan (Also Founder of the Ragas Dental College) and Dr. Gunaseelan Rajan, Rajan Dental is now rolling out courses in Implantology, laser dentistry and other fields.
Just last week, the Institute conducted an intensive 6-day implantology programme that was attended by 10 dental surgeons and included lectures on basic implantology, advanced surgical techniques, prosthetic procedures and managing complications as well as hands-on sessions on patients. Experienced clinicians including Dr. Gunaseelan Rajan, Dr. Hariharan, Dr. B. Praveen and Dr. Harinath delivered comprehensive lectures including a presentation on Nobel Active implants which is an internationally practiced system. The participants witnessed a live surgery of indirect sinus lifting along with implant placement and had the opportunity to plan treatment using the Cone Beam CT Scan, place implants and carry through impression procedures in patients under the guidance of the course faculty. “It was very informative and I am very impressed. I will keep coming back here and hope that I can join their full-time fellowship program next year too.” said Dr. V. Sudhakar (BDS), a dentist based in Kovilpatti who participated in the course.
Rajan Dental Institute will continue conducting frequent training programmes and short courses in addition to its flagship TN Dr. MGR Medical University affiliated Fellowship Programme in Dental Implantology in association with the Chennai Dental Research Foundation as well as it’s training programmes on advanced concepts such as Zygoma implants and All-on-4 Implants conducted in association with Nobel Biocare and Malo Clinic International.
