The Smile Dental Academy’s Postgraduate Diploma in Orthodontics provides dentists with the knowledge and understanding of the latest techniques in Orthodontics. The PGDip in Orthodontics aims to the cover the fundamental aspects of orthodontics allowing clinicians to treat relatively straightforward orthodontic cases in practice with a combination of fixed and clear aligner therapy.
The Diploma will extend over a 12-month period involving 18 days of face to face teaching (incorporating lectures, hands on practical sessions, typodont course and case based discussions) with a guided self-directed learning component between formal teaching days.
This comprehensive course is divided into 4 Modules covering core knowledge (Module 1 and 2), clinical skills (Module 3) and enhanced clinical skills (Module 4). The course will be delivered by a team of consultant orthodontists with significant experience in hospital and practice based clinical practice.
Delegates will gain knowledge and practical skills allowing them to assess, evaluate and diagnose cases and treat simple orthodontic cases with fixed appliances or clear aligners. Comprehensive support will be provided throughout the course with each delegate assigned a named personal course mentor.
