Webinar Details

Guided surgery for implant placement is not a new concept in implant dentistry. Restoratively driven implant placement is a well-accepted and often-quoted dogma when clinicians consider implant positioning. However, guided surgery, which many believe to be the apogee of restoratively driven implant planning and placement still struggles to find wide-scale acceptance in the U.K.

This webinar will put forward the case for computer-guided surgery. Discussing the benefits of planning your surgery virtually before going to the patient’s mouth and the clinical advantages of guided surgery. Also, looking to the future and how this fast-evolving technology may evolve.

Learning Outcomes


To learn how:-

  • Using guided surgery protocols can simplify all aspects of implant dentistry.
  • Planning your implant cases virtually is beneficial for the surgeon, restoring colleague (if different to the surgeon) and most importantly the patient
  • Guided surgery can be used to improve safety
  • Virtually planned and surgically guided implant placement is a powerful tool medico-legally


On completion of this webinar you will understand the benefits of guided surgery.

Nick Fahey

Specialist Prosthodontist

After many years working in Devonshire Place and Harley Street, Nick now works solely in Woodborough House, his multidisciplinary referral practice in West Berkshire. Nick works as a specialist prosthodontist and as such, accepts referrals related to fixed and removable prosthodontics, as well as accepting referrals and having a special interest in all aspects of dental implantology. After training in his native New Zealand, Nick studied at the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute where he obtained an M.Clin.Dent degree in Prosthodontics. Nick also holds the following fellowships, the MRD RCS(Ed), FRACDS (Syd) and MFDS RCS (Eng). 

As well as being focused on restoring function to his patients, Nick is an expert in delivering bio-mimetic and cosmetic dentistry. Nick’s areas of professional interest include dentistry related to the placement and restoration of dental implants and the provision of complex fixed and removable prosthodontic rehabilitation. These cases often require a multidisciplinary team approach which Nick leads.

Of particular interest has been his involvement in all aspects of digital dentistry. As a pioneer in computer-guided surgery, Nick has taught a generation of dentists about guided surgery and has been a KOL in this field for many companies. Nick has literally written the book on all aspects of computer-guided surgery and guided surgical navigation for the simplification of surgical placement and restoration of dental implants. Of recent interest is Nicks's pioneering work on the amalgamation of 3D facial scanning and real-time jaw movements into the planning process for complex reconstructive cases – currently, Woodborough house is the only dental practice in the UK providing this service. This service is facilitated by using a range of digital records such as CBCT scans in conjunction with virtual implant planning software, intraoral scans, 3D facial scanning, Modjaw acquisitions of real-time jaw movement, 3D printing of surgical guides and guided navigation. Restorations are in the main provided utilising intraoral scanning technology and CAD CAM laboratory solutions. Nick enjoys membership of the ADI and fellowship of the ITI, where he is also a study club director and mentor. He has presided over the London Dental Study Club and was a founding member of the New Zealand Dental Society of London. Nick is also a serving committee member and twice past president of the Reading Branch of the BDA. Nick has lectured worldwide on topics such as computer-guided surgery and virtual implant planning and has authored a dental textbook titled “Guided Surgery – Making Implant Placement Simpler”.
