"the Diploma in Implant Dentistry covered all the aspects of teaching that I was looking for as well the option to extend the Diploma to an Msc if I wanted to study further. It was also a qualification that was looked upon favourably amongst the profession.

I would say to anyone thinking about this course that it has been worth the money and time. My patients, my practice and my referral colleagues have all benefitted this experience. It does require a reasonable amount of commitment during the 2 years and also for preparation for the final assessment, but once you get used to the level of commitment it can be comfortably done while working in practice.
