Residency Dates – September Intake: 01/09/2021-05/09/2021 & Second Date TBA

The Diploma

The diploma is available to general dental practitioners to progressively advance their knowledge and skills in surgical and prosthodontic aspects of implant dentistry.  The program will support candidates to achieve competency in management, examination, diagnosis of more “advanced” cases of single tooth restoration in the anterior maxilla and posterior mandible, grafting as part of site preparation, more advanced imaging, and advanced implant prosthodontics.

Courses are associated with formal assessment procedures. A minimal pass standard is required for each component of the program.

Assessment includes:

  • Mentor feedback on treated cases
  • Case presentations during the block program
  • Case reports of treated patients with sign off of Clinical Progress forms for each case
  • Written examinations

Candidates are encouraged to read widely from the current scientific literature. The assignments follow a similar style of writing and required critical appraisal of the literature.
