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.

Learning Outcomes:
  • To provide appropriate clinical experience to enable you to further your knowledge and skills in implant dentistry.
  • To develop your capacity for contemporary professional practice.
  • To provide some specialist knowledge and theory.
  • To give you the opportunity to sample postgraduate study and possibly inspire you towards specialist study in the Doctor of Clinical Dentistry.
