Dental team discussion

Because we’re specialist dentists, your dentist can refer you or you can call us direct.


  • Regular study clubs are held at Perlan on a wide variety of topics - if you would like to be advised of these, please send an email to and we will add you to the mailing list. Or keep an eye on our Events Diary.
  • Free one-day restorative courses are available for referring practitioners to get started with restoring their own straightforward cases. Please email for more information.
  • We provide free restorative mentoring to referring dentists who would like to restore their own cases.
  • We also provide free ongoing support by telephone or email.
  • The last Tuesday of every month is a "drop-in" evening, when you can bring case documentation along to discuss with us - be it perio, endo, restorative or implant related. Just please let us know a few days before at the latest and we will gladly stay on to discuss it over a coffee.
  • Mike Heffernan and Steve Barter are Fellows and accredited speakers for The ITI - International Team for Implantology - and formal training is provided under ITI auspices, including a comprehensive course over one year with included mentoring as specified by the GDC "Training Standards in Implant Dentistry". This is suitable as part-preparation for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh Diploma in Implant Dentistry. Details can be found on the ITI UK website
  • The ITI SAC Classification was adapted by the GDC for determining the degree of complexity that may be presented by a particular case. Whilst the GDC have restricted the classification to "Straightforward" or "Complex", the ITI maintains the "Advanced" classification. This is a very useful tool for deciding whether to treat or refer a case. For a copy of the SAC classification or the ITI Aesthetic Risk Assessment sheet, please email us

Practitioner Testimonials:

"Aspirational and inspirational course, Akit has a nice delivery of the  theoretical aspect of the course and the technician was an absolute magician demonstrating the practical aspect of the course. Superb!"


"Having recently attended the modular implant course at the Perlan specialist center, I would like to endorse how impressed I was by the content and the structure of the modules.

The evenings were extremely informative and the interactive presentations provided an overview of the subject that incorporated sufficient detail to ensure that we, as practitioners, were equipped with the appropriate information to confidently advise our patients. This was then combined with hands-on tuition to enable us to undertake the prosthetic component following implant placement.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to any practitioner wishing to incorporate implants into their practice or to expand their knowledge of this ever-expanding specialty."
