This part-time programme is for dental practitioners who would like to develop their theoretical knowledge and practical clinical experience of treatment planning, surgical placement, restoration and maintenance of dental implants.
The programme's design allows you to gain experience of using dental implants and prosthodontics elements related to dental implants within a supervised environment, while treating patients through a series of hands-on exercises. You will build your knowledge through distance learning modules and study days. You will also have the opportunity to carry out a dissertation.
We aim to produce caring, knowledgeable and skilful practitioners who are competent in the provision of the surgical and restorative dental aspects of dental implant treatment, within the limits of the individual clinician.
