The Course Prospectus
The Diploma course in Advanced Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry (AARD) is designed by Dr. Subir Banerji, the Programme Director of the internationally acclaimed MSc in Aesthetic Dentistry at the Faculty of Dentistry Oral & Craniofacial Sciences King's College London. This course is delivered in a blended learning format with 5 online modules and one onsite module (module 6) that comprises of 10 days of onsite workshops in international centres which are faculty approved training centres. The last assessment module (module 7) will be written assignments and presentation of clinical cases.
The onsite module involves intensive practical manikin and simulation-based exercises. It enables the delegates to learn and demonstrate understanding and application of techniques covered in clinical practice and also allows face-to-face interaction with the teaching faculty and peers.
The blended learning format enables the busy dentist to complete a structured programme in the field of aesthetic and restorative dentistry with due recognition without taking too much time away from their practice. Learning in the comfort of their own home and at their own pace. Depending on the scheduling of the onsite module, it is anticipated that the delegate will be able to complete all the modules in a year but may take up to 2 years if required. However, the time away from practice would only be 10 days (onsite module 6). For module 7, the clinical cases will be completed in the dentists’ own practice on their own patients with guidance from faculty. Otherwise, no travel or time away from home or practice is required. The assignments will be submitted and assessed online.
