Prerequisite: PG Cert Contemporary Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry (LEVEL I).
This unique course expands on the skills developed in the Certificate course and can lead to the prestigious award of Fellowship of BAARID on successful completion of the Diploma.
Contemporary restorative and aesthetic dentistry advanced courses are designed to give you the confidence to tackle more complex cosmetic and implant cases by offering case mentoring as part of the Diploma.
There will be numerous treatment planning exercises and in depth discussion of clinical cases as well as practical occlusion exercises.
Q Do I have to present a clinical case?
Advanced course students are encouraged to bring a case to present on the final day of the course. This does not have to be a case you have treated. The purpose of the case is to demonstrate diagnostic and treatment planning skills in aesthetic, restorative or implant dentistry. Students are encouraged to bring cases during the course for discussion.
Q What are the entry criteria to complete the Diploma?
- Must have completed PG Cert in Restorative & Aesthetic Dentistry course within the last 3 years
- Complete the Advanced course lectures/case presentation

Q Is there an examination?
Yes but this is optional. You can undertake the course without sitting the examination. However, there is an MCQ examination for the online blended course, which the residential students can take if they wish.
Q If I don’t sit the examination will I still obtain a Diploma?
No but you gain a certificate of Level II completion.
Q Is mentoring provided?
Mentoring is provided on study days during the course. After the course online mentoring is provided (at a small additional charge).
Q Do I have to submit clinical cases to be awarded the Diploma?
Yes a portfolio of 6 cases is required for the Diploma, but you can still undertake the course without submitting the cases and gain a certificate of completion.
Q Who awards the Diploma?
The Diploma is awarded by the educational organisation BAARID – BRITISH ACADEMY AESTHETIC RESTORATIVE AND IMPLANT DENTISTRY.
The BAARID awarding committee has experienced practitioners all at master’s level or above and covers the specialisms of Oral Surgery, Orthodontics, Restorative, Periodontal, Endodontic and Periodontal Dentistry.
It is more educationally robust than any other private institutions and many universities.
Q Why no link with Warwick?
We can provide the certificate and level II course / Advanced Diploma at a much lower cost than Warwick.
We are also more clinically orientated and educationally robust than Warwick, and have a much higher quality teaching team.
Whilst many students think they will go onto an MSc they actually stop at Diploma level, which is more achievable and clinically relevant.
The masters component has no clinical relevance and will involve assignments/projects accounting to well over 20,000 words, so consequently very few students go onto the masters.
Feedback from students has been that it is Dominic who makes the course interesting and relevant, plus the Diploma through BAARID is better organised, cheaper and far more achievable.
