The Stuart Orton-Jones Institute
The dentist teaching centre was based in Northamptonshire, England, and was run by Dr Stuart Orton-Jones and a team dental professionals from various professional backgrounds.
The main objective of the dental Institute was to help participants learn the skills required to treat their own patients. The teaching methods involved lectures followed by practical exercises using animal jaws and specially designed models that fit into mannequins in dental chairs.
All courses were essentially hands-on and practical. The teaching centre was equipped with a state of the art projection and sound systems enhanced with automated dual screen. All surgical procedures could be digitally recorded and observed in the lecture room with the aid of strategically place cameras, one over the patient and one capturing the entire surgery. A communication network enabled direct links with the operator and participants throughout surgical procedures. The dental teaching Centre was fully equipped for Implant and Restorative Procedures.
