Course Description

The Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry (Advanced) is classified under the Australian Qualifications Framework as a level 8 Graduate Diploma.  The course is part-time for two years and is available in implant dentistry only.


This course is for general dentists who wish to expand their knowledge and skills in implant dentistry.
The course is ideal for local general dentists who wish to remain in private practice while learning.  Unfortunately, this means that international students are not eligible to apply because the international student visa requires full-time enrolment.
