Our postgraduate Dental Implantology course provides the busy General Dental Practitioner with a part-time educational route to acquire the skills and knowledge required of a Dentist with Special Interest (DwiSI). Students can study for an MSc over two years.
Dental Implantology aims to develop a critical understanding and the ability to evaluate the clinical theory, practice and associated research applied to the practice of dental implantology as a mode of referred treatment.
Our postgraduate course will provide you with the opportunities to apply the clinical theory, practice and associated research in the provision of dental implantology within the primary care setting. This course focuses on contemporary practice, teaching evidence-based principles and systems to ensure an optimal outcome for the patient and practitioner.

This equates to significant savings in otherwise lost income.
