Implant Dentistry



Modern Implant dentistry is constantly evolving and presents with challenges which require new skills sets as well as meeting high patient expectations in the world we live in today. A university-based training programme provides a sound basis for evidence based training and education. Attainment of new skill sets in implant dentistry will provide a foundation to safely treat patients with dental implants and provide a rewarding career in Implant Dentistry.

Our diploma in Implant Dentistry has been running since 2007 with a high percentage of students graduating at end of the programme. Teaching is spread over various lectures, seminars, hands on workshops and live surgeries. One on one patient supervision is provided for treating patients on site to ensure student learning is optimal.  The teaching is led by registered specialists who have significant experience in both the surgical and prosthodontics aspects of implant Dentistry. This complimented by various invited national and international speakers.
