Post Graduate Certificate and Post Graduate Diploma

Essentially a PG Diploma is comparable to completing the education associated with 2 or 3 of our PG Certificates. As such, you can reap the benefits of 2 or 3 courses within a substantially shorter duration.

Understandably, the effort involved in completing an accelerated PG Diploma is increased as delegates invest time earlier. However, the benefits of superior confidence and ability to deliver better quality treatments means delegates realise the inherent advantages earlier.

Digital Dentistry


Advanced Techniques in Restorative, Implant Dentistry & Orthodontics

Digital dentistry is no longer something that is confined to the occasional practice with a digital radiograph sensor as more practices are investing in technology. 

However, most practices that have intra oral scanners or digital technology in general use it in a limited way either out of fear of the unknown or lack of training available. 

On these digital dentistry course we will aim to change that as you will be joined by the excellent and extremely knowledgable Dr Adam Nulty, Dr Patrik Zachrisson and Dr Chris Lefkaditis as well as other Guest Speakers and leaders in their fields, supported by the worlds best technology providers. 

Adam, Patrik and Chris have travelled and trained across Europe to provide the delegates with the very latest information and techniques available. The courses will also be aimed at all skill levels so every delegate will gain from the day. There simply aren't other course like them!

Lunch will be provided on each day of the digital dental courses as well as the friday night evening meal on two day courses. The course will be 7 hours of CPD for each day.

The Courses

Digital Vs Analogue: The Future of Implant Dentistry

There’s no getting away from it, the digital age is here and technology is evolving as you read! With technology moving so fast what is the clinical evidence out there to support these new developments? Is there still a need for more traditional techniques, which has the clinical backing and years of data behind it? We debate the true advantages of digital implant dentistry and how implant systems have evolved to integrate with the benefits of CAD/CAM, Computer Guided Surgery and Surgical Guide Design. Does digital dentistry really improve the efficiency and accuracy of dental procedures and can it truly allow clinicians to predict the finished results of their patient’s treatment plan?

Dental 3D Printing Party with August de Oliveira PARTS 1 & 2


3D Printers are all the rage in dentistry these days, but how do you know which one is right for you? What can I 3D Print and why should I even get involved with this technology? In this fun, information packed hands on course doctors and their team will learn the ins and outs of the 3 major types of 3D printers, FDM such as the CEL Robox, which is used mainly for surgical guides, SLA such as the Form 2, which I used for clear aligner models and surgical guides, and DLP, such as the Envisiontec Vida and Moonray by Sprintray and the Asiga Max by WhipMix, which are used for die models, aligners, guides and more! Students will also learn the Meshmixer with the Christian Brenes tooth library, that can help docs get their STL models printer ready, as well as do diagnostic wax ups, and make essix retainers, design guides and night guards. In this class we will also cover aligner fabrication and low cost Orthodontic software that will allow you to do most cases for under $250 and we will use various pressure and vacuforming machines to fabricate aligners.


Take 3D Printing to the Next Level with ExoCAD. 

If you have been 3D printing and using Mesh- mixer, you know the limitations of this free software. In this fun, 2 day hands on course you will learn the ins and outs of 3D printing using ExoCAD. You don't have to own or buy ExoCAD to benefit from this class. If you are not an ExoCAD owner you can buy a ticket that includes a teaching license that is your to keep to practice at home.
