Learn more about our dental courses & postgraduate programmes

The London Dental Institute has developed a unique portfolio of UK accredited postgraduate dental courses, certificate and diploma programmes for dentists working in both the UK and internationally.

Part-time postgraduate dental courses are offered in the fields of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopaedics, Periodontology, Oral Surgery & Dental Implantology and Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry.

Advanced training is provided from an international faculty of experts and specialists in their fields, with registrants able to select the option for teaching delivered 100% online or via a blended learning format, where online lectures and seminars are combined with the option to attend intensive week-long practical training blocks here in Central London.

Upgrading to include the face to face training weeks is optional and not a requirement for PG Diploma Qualification. Students may choose to complete online only training if it is their preference. Following successful completion of the course, students will be awarded with the Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) qualification in the relevant subject.

Dental Courses Structure

Study from home with
our e-Learning platform

All dental courses within the LDi are intended to complement and fit alongside a normal working schedule. With our blended learning approach, theoretical teaching through lectures and webinars is provided on our specifically designed institute e-platform. This two way interface also allows for ongoing case discussion and mentoring throughout the course, and encourages the students to build experience knowing that expert support and advice is easily accessible.

Face to Face London
Practical Teaching Blocks

(Optional) To supplement the e-learning, a week long face to face teaching conference is held in London comprising of lectures and hands-on practical teaching. These sessions are designed to build on the knowledge already provided over the distance learning, and to ensure students are able to build their clinical skills and confidence whilst enjoying the benefits of a stay in London. The timetable is carefully designed to allow for the most efficient use of time away from work for dentists during this period of concentrated teaching. Please note that there is a supplemental cost for these optional face to face training sessions.

UK Level 7

In an increasingly competitive field, it is not only desirable for clinicians to be able to build their experience and knowledge base in order to provide the highest quality of care for their patients, but also to justify this with appropriate certification. As such, the dental courses within the LDi are structured to match the requirements of the awarding body Eduqual (Level 7), and we are pleased to confirm that the successful completion will lead to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma certification.
