Course Information

Dr Natasha Koelmeyer - Course Co-Ordinator &
Dr Sarkis Nalbandian - Course Director

General dental practitioners from all countries can apply. This course is structured learning; however, it is not about a recipe, which is empirical thinking.

Formal assessments of carefully selected five clinical cases will be assessed at module 1. This will be required to complete by the end of the program.

All students learn from each others’ cases. Under mentor’s guidance you will achieve confidence in case presentations and develop critical thinking skills on evidenced based treatment outcome studies and well-developed protocols with an understanding that;

BIOLOGY DRIVES THE TREATMENT-RESTORATIVE PROCESS

Your knowledge and skills will be challenged continuously throughout the course, changing your paradigm.

Each module has assignments and assessments that include case presentations & interactive discussions with mentors and students. Candidates are expected to be familiar with current scientific literature.

Candidate must complete all modules required for certificate and diploma degrees.

Fee Schedule
Certificate: $14,500 (Modules 1-6)
Diploma: $25,000 (Modules 1-12)

Missing modules by candidate will delay the graduation and candidate must wait for a year to complete the modules with the new coming group prior to graduation. Unless special provisions are met and passed by the academy of examiners and may incur additional fees. Dental treatment outside the confines of selected cases and within time frame of the course will not contribute to the coursework requirements.

To help you with your cases, we encourage you to bring your patients to our centre and treat them under the specialist’s guidance. A Special Timetable will be constructed to meet candidates demands for specific procedures indicated and discussed with your mentor with patient consultations, consent etc. as this is a real-life clinical learning experience.
