TWENTY Dental Surgeons drawn from Ghana, the Gambia and Nigeria are to benefit from a four modular course in dental implantology at the University of Ghana Dental School in Korle Bu.

Dental implantology is a new branch of dentistry which involves the reconstruction of missing teeth and their supporting structures with natural or synthetic substitutes.

The course is being organised by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission, Ghana, in collaboration with the University of Ghana Dental School at Korle Bu and the Academy of Medical Sciences of Germany with the support of the Ministry of Health.

The first modular course starts in April, while the second, third and fourth modular courses would be organised in July, October and December 2012 respectively.

Dr  Maulvi A Wahab Adam , the Ameer and Missionary-In- Charge  of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission said about £200,000 had been borne by the mission through the approval of the  Supreme Head of the world-wide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih V and the Academy of Medical Sciences and stakeholders in Germany.

 He said this was a contribution of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission towards the provision of social services in general and healthcare services in the country.

He, however, urged the participants to be fully engaged in the course in order to upgrade their skills and also add up to the already existing dental surgeons in Ghana and Africa.

The Vice Dean of the University of Ghana Dental School, Prof. Ebenezer Nyarko, who is also the coordinator of the course said dental implantology was one of the latest high technology in dental surgery for the treatment of dental cases worldwide.

He,however, called for more funding in order to increase the number of students who undertake the course every year.

The Chairman for the occasion, Professor Aaron Lawson of the College of Health Sciences, said the selection of the course participants from all over the country was to ensure the intended spread of knowledge throughout Ghana.
