You have a clear Career Pathway, which shows completion of this Advanced course, then on to the Diploma, which includes Submission of 6 Cases, 9 BAARID essential photographic views and Mentoring of the clinical case portfolio.
The award of the Diploma follows successful clinical case presentation, submission of the clinical case portfolio and satisfactory performance in the final MCQ examination.
*Please note an additional fee is payable for mentoring of the clinical case portfolio, submission of the portfolio and MCQ examination.
On successful completion of the Diploma, students are eligible to apply for an APECL route to an MSc with the University of Kent.
This course will increase your confidence and practical skills in handling more complex aesthetic and restorative cases including those where vertical dimension changes are required to rehabilitate.
Course costs include lunch, supporting materials but excludes study models and deprogrammer.
Peter Huntley (Specialist Orthodontist) will present on the aesthetic, functional and occlusal aspects of adult orthodontics.
Sean Power will present on what is achievable with short term orthodontics in terms of aesthetics, function and occlusion.
All of these presentations will be largely case based.
Dominic will also cover aesthetic, functional and occlusal aspects of the advanced case, risk based treatment planning, treatment stages and case presentation.
Online Section The video lectures are organised into modules to make online learning possible, each module gives you the relevant CPD hours.
The online course is available to start 1st July 2019. Modules will be released periodically. The online part of the course is the equivalent of 7 days for the purposes of CPD.
