in collaboration with Australia delivery partner The Implant Institute

The Cambridge Academy of Dental Implantology (CAofDI) has for years provided General Dental Council compliant training in the field of Dental Implantology in the UK - from beginners to experienced implant dentists. This takes the form of the Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) program for dentists new to implantology and the Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) for more experienced implant dentists, or those who have completed the PGCert. It is under the Directorship of Dr Stuart Ellis.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Dental Implantology is a formally accredited postgraduate qualification, approved by the globally recognised regulated UK awarding body, EduQual. It allows for continuation of studies toward the Cambridge Academy of Dental Implantology's Postgraduate Diploma in Dental Implantology (PGDip). CaofDI is pleased to be collaborating with The Implant Institute to provide Australian dentists the unique opportunity of studying for these qualifications in Australia, under the Directorship of Australia Program Director Dr Misagh Habibi.
