Do I have enough skills to become an implant surgeon?
This is exactly the question many dentists ask themselves during their practice. The most obvious answer is that perfection knows no limits.
Having acquired basic knowledge in dentistry, you can plan your future practice. However, there is one more condition: you have to realize the level you start with.
Foundational surgical skills are insufficient for a successful dental practitioner, you have to overcome a long way while learning, practicing and mastering your attainments because doctors are not given it since birth.
Realizing a true level of your skills and reflecting on your practice is the first base on your way to placing implants. Moreover, you have to understand the importance of your mentors and teachers that help you to acquire needed skills even if you start from nothing. Right perception to these points is the key.
Surely, a person with a wealth of experience in dental implantology is likely to succeed faster, but the others might exercise more skills while communicating with patients, marketing and other branches and learn as fast as the latter. You should look for teachers and courses with transparent realization of all your attainments. They are able to switch your skills on a right track and assist you in enhancing them and planning your future education.
Being a man of many accomplishments in the implant odontology might require perfect knowledge in dentistry and surgery as well as skills in business, communication with patients and other branches, so you are never late to learn new acquirements. Finding an appropriate surrounding and favorable conditions for your education is a foundation stone for your future career.
