I was fortunate to undergo the Dental Implantology fellowship programme of The Tamilnadu Dr. MGR Medical University conducted by Rajan Dental & CDRF in 2013 -14.It was very well structured with theoretical and clinical aspects.The faculty included friendly teachers with national & international experience.Seminars & Journal clubs gave in depth knowledge of various aspects in Implant Dentistry. This Programme enabled me to gain enough experience to practice as an independent Implantologist. I attended the 21st ISOI conference, Chennai. Lectures were delivered by eminent Implantologists from all over the world.
Dr. Sowmya, B.D.S, (Fellowship in Dental Implantology, 2015 – 2016)
Pursuing this program has not only uplifted my skills on Implantology, but has also given me confidence and individuality as a Practioner. This program is so well structured, that it incorporates surgical, prosthetic and patient handling aspects. And about the mentors, I’m very grateful to have been trained by a set of internationally renowned and experienced mentors. They were very supportive throughout the program. Their immense knowledge and overwhelming guidance helped us address even challenging cases with an ease and confidence. On the whole this program was a good opportunity to learn and pursue Implantlogy in both surgical and clinical aspects.
Dr. Saishree Sundaravelu, B.D.S, (Fellowship in Dental Implantology, 2015 – 2016)
The Fellowship in Oral Implantology program conducted at Rajan Dental institute is a comprehensive one. Thorough updated knowledge about implants was conveyed through academic activities like journal clubs and case discussions. Hands on training on both models and patients gave a deeper insight into surgical as well as prosthetic procedures. Facility of the Cone Beam Computed Tomography Scan (CBCT) available in the institute was very much helpful for analysis. To add feather in the crown is the Advanced implant training in All-on-4® implant placement and prosthetic loading. Faculty at our institute is our major strength- Dr Gunaseelan Rajan, Dr. Praveen B, Dr Sanketh Reddy, Dr Gowri, Dr Vinamra each being stalwart in their fields gave us all the confidence to work with ease and perfection.
Dr. Jagrithi, B.D.S, (Fellowship in Dental Implantology, 2015 – 2016)
The one year I spent at Rajan dental institute(RDI) has empowered me with a varied range of surgical and prosthetic skills. The program was a perfect amalgamation of strong theoretical foundation and practical workspace. I saw latest concepts within the confines of the lab and Operation Theatre, which till date I had only read in the text books. I felt myself grow as an Implantologist. I have also gained the confidence to independently perform varied procedures in Implant dentistry. The experience has been an immense learning. None of this would’ve been possible without the able guidance and mentorship of the teachers at RDI and Chennai Dental Research Foundation from whom I constantly draw knowledge, support and inspiration. It was the best I could’ve asked at this nascent stage in my career.
