  • My time as a student of the London Dental institute was amazing. It was intense, however, thanks to the concepts I have learnt in the school, my confidence in delivering Orthodontic treatment to my patients has greatly increased. Our lecturers were well detailed in expounding the concepts.

    I am thrilled to share my review of the Diploma in Orthodontics and Orthopedics, a program that has profoundly reshaped my career trajectory. Prior to enrolling, my practice primarily focused on short-term orthodontics for adults. However, since completing the course, I have expanded my scope to include a diverse range of patients, spanning conventional orthodontic treatments for both adults and children. I have particularly relished the orthopedic segment of the course, integrating these principles into practice by treating a broad spectrum of patients with functional appliances. Embracing high-quality orthodontics alongside orthopedic jaw development has enabled me to minimize the necessity for extraction orthodontics, a transformation I find immensely rewarding. The online case-based discussions have been exceptional, providing invaluable confidence as I embarked on my initial cases. The personalized 1:1 clinical advice has been instrumental in honing my skills. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the London Dental Institute for orchestrating this pivotal shift in my dental career, steering it towards a more fulfilling and impactful direction.

  • I enrolled in the Diploma in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics March last year and am close to completion. Though mostly online, there is a practical kit sent, so that those who are unfamiliar and have a good idea and be equipped to start. Thoroughly enjoyed this course, with experts in the field collaborating to provide world class education. Plenty of opportunity to discuss your cases and apply the knowledge into real world practice.

  • I've been learning a lot! The admin team is also very responsive and do their beat to help make sure that all your needs have been addressed, I once needed assistance with my payments and they were very helpful ( Shout out to Sophie and her team) I'm more a visual person, i prefer videos or lectures and I was so glad to find plenty of videos which come with course outline. Some videos can be a little long though so you may want to adjust the speed if you prefer it. Otherwise no regrets here!
