Course content

This part-time three-year Postgraduate Diploma programme is designed for dentists with little or no experience in implant dentistry, to enable them to comprehensively diagnose, treatment plan and treat, within the scope of their ability, patients in need of implant-based surgical and prosthodontic treatment.

Students benefit from first-class facilities for both education and research which provide unique, seamless training in specialist dentistry and access to a wide range of clinical cases and techniques ensuring experience of managing complex clinical problems.

The tutors are all registered specialists with particular emphasis in prosthodontics which helps with planning simple and complex restorative cases and the learning extends beyond basic implant dentistry.

All students treat patients on-site with one-on-one supervision and mentoring of implants cases with registered specialist from planning, surgery and restoration of the cases. This provides significant support and confidence for students - particularly the less experienced.
