Why attend this course?

Digital Dentistry is now becoming a key part of diagnosis and treatment planning in dental practice. It is therefore imperative for practitioners to qualify in prescribing and reporting Dental Cone Beam Computed Tomography (DCBCT) scans. What is more, the use of a digital workflow can save valuable time for the dentist and patients and improve the accuracy of treatment planning and surgical guidelines.

What is the aim of the course?

The Post Graduate Certificate (PGCert) in Foundations of Digital Dentistry aims to provide participants with the core knowledge of the digital work-flow and digital treatment planning.
