This course has the equivalent of 8 days online and a 5-day hands-on section. Together the course gives you the same information as the residential course, organised and presented in a slightly different way.
The 5-day hands-on part of the course is held at the DHTI Learning Centre in Solihull, UK. You can see dates by clicking the link on the right ‘Hands-On Course’.
This comprehensive modular course is designed for all dentists who undertake restorative or aesthetic dentistry and wish to improve their knowledge and practical skills. The course has similar content to the traditional course, rearranged for easy online learning.
The demand for advanced restorative and aesthetic dentistry is rapidly expanding as are patient expectations. This is combined with ever increasing choices in terms of techniques and materials, which can be confusing for the practitioner.
The course is designed to introduce systems and techniques, which will allow you to create a more predictable, enjoyable and profitable restorative and aesthetic practice.
