Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00116K

The Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry (Implants) 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 as it is only available part-time. This course was previously known as the Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry (Advanced) and the Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry.


The implant dentistry course is offered part-time over two years (over 4 consecutive semesters). This allows for the extended treatment times for implant patients and for completion of the treatment of a sufficient number of patients.
