Forward By Dr Balwant Vekaria and Dr Azhar Sheikh
We are proud to inform that the Tatum Institute -Dental Implant Training Course is now held at THE LONDON DENTAL STUDIO in Central London. The practice has full in-house surgical and teaching facilities including a purpose built lecture theatre with audio visual facilities, and is ideally located and equipped to provide a first class teaching and learning experience.
A crucial benefit of holding the Dental Implant Course in a busy dental implant practice such as The London Dental Studio in Victoria London is that the course participants have the opportunity to integrate the academic teaching with real life experience of seeing the practice team at work delivering high quality dental implant care.
Dr Azhar Sheikh and Dr Balwant Vekaria have been fortunate to be associated with Professor Hilt Tatum and to train and work with him for twenty years.
Professor Tatum, the director of the Institute and lead of the programme, is a world renowned dental implant surgeon and the Institute carries his name. Dr Ben Aghabeigi is the educational lead and a highly skilled surgeon and qualified teacher. Both are friends and colleagues.
We are greatly honoured and delighted to be a member of faculty of the Tatum Institute and look forward to another successful year of the Tatum Institute year programme – the 14th to date.
Dr Tatum is the inventor of the sinus graft procedure and the unique “D fin” type implants.
He is responsible for major advances in techniques such as Ramus Frame therapy, bone manipulation, progressive loading and flapless implant surgery. London Dental Studio is proud to be able to host an ongoing master class series featuring Dr Tatum. Here is an opportunity for colleagues of all ranges of experience to share the man’s great knowledge, experience and wisdom in the implant field.

Grow by Expanding your Knowledge and Experience
The goal is for your practice to grow by expanding your knowledge and experiences in treatment of patients. We emphasize treatment planning the will allow the majority of patients to be stable for the rest of their life. This is accomplished by managing the forces transferred into the bone from prosthetic components through the supporting abutments.
