GDC Requirements for placing a straightforward case level of implant:

Before undertaking implant treatment, a dentist must develop competence in the procedures involved in clinical assessment, treatment planning, and the placement and restoration of implants.

The skills and knowledge necessary for competence should be developed through a training course in implant dentistry, with a suitably trained and experienced clinician acting as a mentor. Treatment offered and undertaken must be evidence-informed and patient-centred. The dentist must use a contemporary decision-making process to critically appraise new products and techniques before using them, and must ensure they follow current clinical consensus.
