Event Details




Limited opportunity to study towards your PGCert (Dent Imp) (UK Award) during the COVID-19 downtime period. In response to the down-time Australian dentists are facing in these challenging times, we have released a second intake, starting April 29th 2020. Term 1 & 2 theory studies all conducted online, through to October 2020 when practical and clinical components will commence (pending no further delay caused by the COVID-19 situation). This is a unique situation, as usually only a January cohort is enrolled. If you missed out in January, this is a great opportunity. We are also offering 12 month payment plans (usually 6 months) to assist dentists in these challenging times.



Course Format and Delivery

The Postgraduate Certificate in Dental Implantology is a formal postgraduate qualification from the Cambridge Academy of Dental Implantology (CADI), approved by the globally recognised regulated UK awarding body, EduQual. It allows for continuation of studies toward our Postgraduate Diploma in Dental Implantology, or PGDip (Dent Imp).

The Implant Institute, based in Perth, is proud to be CADI’s Australia delivery partner.

Successful completion of the program and graduation from CADI allows use of the letters PGCert (Dent Imp) after your name. Alternatively you can continue your study further, towards the PGDip (Dent Imp) qualification.

This blended learning program provides training aimed at dentists who wish to undertake comprehensive didactic learning consisting of theoretical, practical and clinical components, with little, moderate or no level of previous experience in dental implantology.

The PGCert program comprises of 3 elements and an optional 4th learning element:

  • Dr Misagh Habibi

    Dr Misagh Habibi

    The Implant Institute Director

    Dr Misagh Habibi qualified from the University of Western Australia in 1999. In 2006 he gained a Graduate Diploma degree in intravenous sedation and pain control from Sydney University. In 2013 he gained his Masters degree (MSc) in oral implantology from Goethe University in Frankfurt. Dr Habibi has also been awarded a Fellowship and Board Certified Diplomate Status of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. ​ Dr Habibi is Director of The Implant Institute (TII) and Course Lead for the Australian delivery of the PGCert and PGDip programs of the Cambridge Academy of Dental Implantology. He is a Tutor and Supervisor of MSc (Oral Implantology) students for Goethe University Frankfurt. Previously he has served multiple years as Honorary Clinical Consultant and Consultant Sedationist for UWA Dental School/Oral Health Centre of WA, and provided oral surgery and sedation services to multiple clinics, before settling into his implant focused practice for the past 12 years. He is also a Surgical Associate of the All On 4 Clinic of Australia. Misagh has been involved in multiple clinical studies, including clinical studies based on his own patient data. His Masters thesis was on his clinical study of a protocol for immediate implant placement in sites with peri-apical infection. He has supervised several implantology Masters clinical studies, including on topics such as full arch immediate hybrid milled restoration, short implants, biomechanics, guided surgery and full arch digital impression method accuracy. He is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Western Australia developing and investigating an innovative biomaterial for application in implant dentistry. Dr Habibi has mentored many dentists in their implant treatments, planning and execution. Misagh has performed several thousand implant procedures and administered several thousand hours of intravenous sedation to facilitate dental treatment for phobic patients, and for those with advanced treatment needs. He has experience with multiple implant systems, techniques and hard and soft tissue grafting modalities. His clinical practice is built around complex implant cases, with his main interest being full arch immediate reconstruction of terminal dentitions and compromised jaws, including conventional (tissue preservation and grafting), All-on-4/All-on-X, and atrophic jaw zygoma and pterygoid solutions. ​ Misagh has lectured nationally and internationally for various organisations including the Australian Society of Implant Dentistry, Dental Implants Masters, "MOI" and multiple implant companies. He brings his diverse implantology experience to his teaching, sharing real life experience rich in clinical cases and illustrations. He believes in a "big picture and small details" philosophy of education which comes across in his interactive and practically oriented courses. In 2020, Dr Habibi is delivering for the first time in Australia, a Postgraduate Certificate in Dental Implantology program in collaboration with the Cambridge Academy of Dental Implantology, allowing full time dentists to start their implant journeys with a solid theoretical, practical skills and clinical execution program, gaining an official PGCert (Dent Imp) qualification (UK) whilst continuing to work. This can then be transferred into the second year of a PGDip (Dent Imp) qualification program. ​Dr Misagh Habibi brings world class educational, training, mentorship and residency offerings in intermediate and advanced implantology to Perth, Australia and the region with the assistance of a talented Academy of The Implant Institute. Further to offerings in implantology are those in another area often lacking in educational opportunities for the general dental practitioner, being medical considerations, emergency management and sedation in dental practice.
