What is this course about?

CSU's Postgraduate Diploma of Dental Implantology aims to produce graduates capable of including implant dentistry as an integral element of their practice. NOTE: This course is offered on a biennial basis, the next intake will be in 2012.

The use of dental implants has revolutionised dentistry. Designed in consultation with the ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development, this course aims to develop graduates who are confident in incorporating dental implant supported prostheses into general dental practice. The course will teach students how to place and restore dental implants from single teeth to full arch cases.

Integral to the course is its practical component. Focusing on the surgical and prosthetic aspects of implant dentistry, CSU's Postgraduate Diploma of Implantology includes didactic and clinical sessions with students completing several cases on their own patients under the guidance of mentors.

The course will cover the following aspects of dental implantology:

  • its history and development
  • the anatomical structures involved, including hard and soft tissues
  • the various radiographic techniques used in treatment planning
  • its limitations and the implications of various medical conditions.

Students will be assessed through a series of assignments, the submission of four case presentations, and subject examinations. It is expected that students will carry out reading and research outside course hours.
