Course Overview: Currently this course focuses on developing your knowledge and skills in implant dentistry or oral surgery. Implant dentistry is only available part-time so international students are not eligible to apply because the international student visa requires enrolment in a full-time course. However, this course is ideal for local general dentists who wish to remain in private practice while learning. Oral surgery is available either part-time or full-time.
