Dental team discussion

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

Training/Mentoring

  • 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 care@perlan.co.uk 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
