What is the Implantology Privilege?
The health authorities of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) require that only appropriately qualified, trained and skilled dentists practice implant dentistry, and that patients receiving dental implant therapy and treatment are assured of quality and safe Implantology services. Therefore, dentists licensed to practice in the UAE are required to attend a multi-modular structured program of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and place a certain number of dental implants in patients under supervision within a maximum time frame. Since the requirements in each of the seven Emirates vary, please refer to the links below or contact your applicably Health Authority.
