UCL Eastman diploma in implant dentistry

The UCL Eastman Dental Institute offers a challenging and progressive part-time modular Diploma programme in Implant Dentistry, delivered two days a month over three years.

The UCL Eastman Diploma is ideal for practitioners wishing to extend their specialised clinical skills base and develop advanced competencies in the area of implants, whilst working part-time towards a postgraduate university qualification.

The newly revised course format now consists of a taught programme conducted through a combination of interactive lectures, live surgery and hands-on procedures, delivered by an experienced multidisciplinary team of GDC registered specialists, and supported by international guest speakers.

Year 1 mainly focuses on patient selection, diagnosis, planning and basic surgery, with opportunities to undertake supervised patient treatment; whilst Year 2 aims to help participants develop their skills and knowledge on the restorative aspects of implant dentistry. More advanced areas such as immediate loading and grafting will also be introduced. The final year emphasizes the consolidation of knowledge and integration of skills, along with advice on patient care and practice management.

The next intake of participants is in October 2010. Places are limited and acceptance to the course is based on competitive entry.
