Clinical practice combined with self-directed special topics designed to allow upgrading of general practice dentistry skills.

The programme will provide a learning framework that will allow candidates to advance their academic and clinical skills in aspects of general practice dentistry. The programme's goal is to provide dental practitioners with advanced skills in a range of disciplines that will be of benefit to the public. The programme aims to broaden students in advanced clinical skills and update them on current advances in clinical practice and issues involving the delivery of general practice dentistry. Students will be able to critically evaluate these concepts and will understand scientific method. The programme design is structured in order for candidates to apply their course work to Dental Council (NZ) accreditation/continued dental education requirements.
