Advanced Aesthetic Dentistry Certificate

A part-time, one year Postgraduate Certificate programme that thoroughly explores the most important topics in aesthetic dentistry. 

Nb. Non-European, international students are able to complete the programme via our ‘mixed mode’ study option – three week-long teaching blocks held in December, March and July. Please select the ‘mixed mode’ option at the start of the application process, instead of the 'part time' option.

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 U.K. 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.

Teaching and Learning is achieved through lectures, step-by-step patient case presentations, ample hands-on training (in both skills laboratories and clinic), video demonstrations of clinical procedures, and textbook / current literature compilation (provided). There is an excellent instructor-student ratio for the hands-on exercises.

Our state-of-the-art facilities include two dedicated laboratories for the production of patient devices such as fixed and removable prosthetic devices. There are five clinical skills laboratories containing 90 clinical skills stations equipped with dental manikins allowing trainees to practically and safely refine skills, and work in conditions that mimic real-life practice. Two of our suites are also equipped with dental microscopes to aid identification of anatomical imperfections and the quick detection of enamel and dentine fractures.
