Why Aesthetic Dentistry?

Interdisciplinary dentistry is one of the most popular and fulfilling dental fields. Current patient demands increase the needs for dentists to increase knowledge and skills in sound restorative options that result in natural looking rehabilitated dentitions.

Why Eastman?

The Certificate in Advanced Aesthetic Dentistry has been a pioneering programme with an international reputation. It launched in 2008 and has contributed to the career advancement of over 100 dentists from the UK and abroad. It offers a thorough exploration of the most important topics of interdisciplinary aesthetic dentistry, and ample hands on training in skills lab and clinic.

The programme is designed for dentists who wish to remain at the cutting edge of contemporary dentistry, and to be able to meet and deliver with confidence, the restorative needs of patients with high aesthetic expectations.

Emphasis is placed on acquiring knowledge, understanding and skills in the areas of aesthetic restorations, contemporary biomaterials plus evidence-based clinical procedures and techniques.
