Why Postgraduate Courses Are Important For Dentistry Graduates

If you’re a dentistry graduate looking to continue your education and professional development, consider a postgraduate course in a specific area of dentistry. Postgraduate courses are perfect for dentists who want to boost their knowledge and advance their career prospects by offering extended treatments to their patients.

Whether you already have a specific field in mind or are just browsing your options, the LDi has all the courses you need as a dentistry graduate. Read on to discover the Postgraduate Diploma courses on offer and how your career can advance with extra knowledge.

Top Dental Fields

Many dentistry graduates pursue a Postgraduate Diploma after completing their initial studies, and there are many popular dental fields to choose from. Maximising earning potential and professional development is key to a successful career in dentistry, and choosing the right Postgraduate course is crucial.

The LDi offers four unique courses for undergraduate working dentists, perfectly matched to the top dental fields listed below.


Orthodontics is a particularly popular field for dentistry graduates, where professional dentists are trained to diagnose and treat dental problems such as misalignments in the teeth and jaws. An orthodontist uses devices such as braces and retainers to correct misalignments and straighten teeth. Dentists who pursue this career path often find the work fulfilling and the earning potential satisfying.

Discover the Diploma in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics (PG Dip.) at the LDi, a 12-month part-time programme for dentistry graduates offering online learning. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

Many dentists pursue cosmetic dentistry, as the demand for such work has increased exponentially as many patients ask for aesthetic treatments to improve the appearance of their teeth, gums, or bites. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the aesthetics of a patient’s smile, including colour, shape, size, and overall appearance. Treatments may include white fillings, teeth whitening, veneers, and invisible braces.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

It is crucial for students of dentistry to continue their professional development as they progress in their careers, and a Postgraduate Diploma is the perfect way to enhance your skills and demonstrate constant growth and improvement. CPD is also about keeping your knowledge up to date with new developments in dentistry and maintaining patient safety and health.
