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.
