Cosmetic dentistry has changed completely over the last fifteen years. And following these changes, our programme has evolved in that time to continue to make sure it is still the best programme in the UK.
This course is all about treating a whole mouth, building aesthetics and function into the treatment plan - regardless of whether it’s a veneer, crown, inlay-onlay, composite bonding or orthodontic case. By the end of the year, you will be able to make a comprehensive assessment of all the potential risks for your cases – be they dental, periodontal, occlusal, or aesthetic – and develop full mouth treatment plans.
Using our tried and tested system, you will develop your clinical skills and confidence during the year. The first half of the programme will re-examine many of the techniques you will carry out on a day-to-day basis, to give a foundational skill set that is built upon in the second half of the year as we consider the comprehensive treatment of the whole mouth as a functional and aesthetic entity.
Here is a summary of the topics covered…
Through our partnership with Dr Christian Coachman, we have incorporated his concepts of Digital Smile Design into our programme.
Alongside the traditional tools for smile design, we will illustrate how DSD can be used to improve treatment planning and communication between dentist, patient, technician and specialists.
On completion of the programme you will also receive Certification in DSD, allowing you to join the DSD community and attend more advanced DSD programmes worldwide without the need to attend an Introductory course.

After completion of the whole course, participants should have gained knowledge & understanding of following:
This knowledge is built through the year, via the structured programme.
This is not a modular programme – there are many recurring themes throughout the year, so the material covered in the middle of the year builds on what was covered at the start. In the same way the material at the end of the year builds on what was covered before.
This is why it is crucial that you block the course dates in your diary so that you do not miss a session.

Q: Why payment only with Direct Debit?
A: We wanted to make the programme more accessible financially to suit everyone’s budget. This is why 12 sessions worth of fees are taken in 7 parts (including the initial booking fee) to make it manageable sums to delegates. Direct Debit is set on a secure platform on our site and creates a straightforward payment method for both the delegate and us. Delegates have easy access to their payment info by logging into their dashboard on our site after the booking.
Q: What happens if I miss a day?
A: You will receive the reading material and handouts so that you can see what was covered. You will still be expected to pay for that session even if you do not attend. However, if the session is repeated in the next run of the course, you may attend this session at no charge. We allow up to two sessions to be carried over to the next run of the course in this manner, provided that the sessions are repeated in the same format.
Q: Is there an examination at the end of the course? Do I have to present any cases?
A: No, there is no formal examination at the end of the course. On the last day there is an optional case presentation by the participants as it is a nice way of rounding off the year, but it is not compulsory to present a case.
Q: Do I have to bring patients for treatment?
A: No, there is no live patient treatment in this programme.
Q: What if I decide to withdraw from the course after booking my place?
