About the Course

Implant Dentistry is one of the most dynamic and rapidly developing areas within oral health care. In spite of increasing popularity of implantology, it is a relatively new discipline within dental education and remains limited to post-graduate courses offered by dental schools in many parts of the world today. With the vision to help dental practitioners gain clinical understanding of implantology and an opportunity to provide implant treatments to their patients, the Faculty of Dentistry of HKU (ranked No. 1 dental school in the World in 2016) developed this MOOC to provide a world-class quality, unbiased, evidence-based and clinically-oriented course in this discipline. Watch course trailer: Who are the faculties? The course teachers include more than 20 implant experts from 10 countries. Among others, you will learn from Professor NP Lang (Switzerland / Hong Kong), Professor Christoph Hämmerle (Switzerland), Professor Rino Burkhardt (Switzerland), Professor Paul Weigl (Germany), Professor Saso Ivanovski (Australia), Professor Man Yi (China), Professor Vasilios Chronopoulos (USA/ Greece), Dr Richard Chan (Australia), Dr Martin Janda (Sweden), Dr Chatchai Kunavisarut (Thailand), Dr Ian HS Yip (Hong Kong) , Dr Michael Ho (Hong Kong), Dr Irina-Florentina Dragan (USA), Dr Adam Siu (Hong Kong), Dr James Chow (Hong Kong), Dr Alfred Lau (Hong Kong), Dr Coral Yao (China), Dr Nikos Mattheos (Hong Kong) and more. What are the contents covered in the course? The MOOC includes 5 modules and runs over a period of 5 weeks. We will begin the journey of Implant Dentistry by exploring how discoveries in biology and technological developments lead to the current practice of dental implants. Then, we will examine clinical cases, diagnose our patients’ needs and expectations and learn the principles of treatment planning. We will learn step-by-step surgical procedures for placing implants and various restorative techniques, directed by current evidence and best practices. Finally, we will investigate major threats and complications of implant procedures and ways to ensure successful treatments and long serving implants. What is the aim of the course? This MOOC has a strong clinical focus and is especially designed to enhance professional learning among dental practitioners and dental students. The course aims to help the students LEARN the fundamentals of implant dentistry, UNDERSTAND the treatment procedures and protocols, and APPLY the competences gained through interactive peer and case based learning. Who is the course for? The course is specially designed to serve multiple groups of learners: From intermediate and experienced general dental practitioners who want to establish and deepen their knowledge in implant dentistry and advance towards implementing implant treatment and restorative procedures, to dental students and recent graduates who wish to gain understanding of implant dentistry and increase their competence in related practice. The course makes good use of evidenced-based education, sound eLearning pedagogies and 21st century “live” resources to engage and create the best learning experience for our students....

Although I have got over ten years of practical experience in both placing implants and restoring teeth on implants, I was very pleasantly surprised by the multitude and quality of new knowledge and practical tips I have received from this course. I would like to thank professor Matteos and the team for making possible this superb and brilliant course, which will remain a cornerstone implantology reference for me in the years to come. With best wishes and deepest respect, Predrag Škrinjar, (Ljubljana, Slovenia), MSc AGDP (Birminham, UK)

Initially a little confused with the learning pathway, eg the real patient and how they relate to the quiz but later I became more familiar with the pathway and the experience was more rewarding.

Everything is clear, to know and learn everything to start implantology, the course is too a guide to explore more about implantology with a guidelines of research. Because in this surgical discipline, we have never finish to learn, In Dentistry everything go fast and we must stay connected, what's news ? what's protocol is better ? and what we must to do or stop actually with the data acquired from science. In Fact this course it's an amazing guidelines, but we don't never stop to learn more about all of subject in implantology. Thank you to all great and amazing speakers who have try to give us the best information that we need to start implantology or to confirm what we now, it seems to be difficult to resume all keys factors of each course in one video. Thank you all, i'll stay connected now with university of Honk-Kong. Dr Hans Helder Boussamba K. GABON - Central Africa.

My very first experience with an online dentistry course. Implant dentistry explained well from basics to the advances step by step each week along with some interesting cases. Great experience learning from the experts from this field and well known clinicians sharing their experiences. Also got a chance to interact with the best people from all over the world. This course was organized very well and giving sufficient time to read, watch and learn all the lessons, solving my first implant cases along with quiz at the end of lessons ! Looking forward for more such courses in Dentistry from Coursera.

This is a wonderful course,I have attended many courses conducted by many reputed doctor over the past year. All of them are more or less good but they did cost me serious money. This online course comes for free and covers almost everything that I have learnt from paid courses. This is concise, effective and practical simultaneously. Thanks to all those who have organized this one. My sincere request is to arrange another one with emphasis on full mouth implant and prosthetic planning.

With this course one get a clear picture of the implant dentistry, a good entry level. Accomplishes to involve you in the process of diagnose, plan and treat a "virtual implant patient", you learn as you contrast your opinions against a vast international community of peers, you get the lectures from historic clinicians of the field of implant dentistry and other clincians and researchers from around the globe.

It is a great way to start or to refresh your knowledge in the field of implant dentistry
