Your Graduate Diploma qualification will equip you to serve the orthodontic treatment needs of a large cohort of patients who present with dental issues to which orthodontic treatment is the only solution.
As this two-year part-time JCU course is offered from JCU's state-of-the-art Cairns Dental School, with extensive use of blended and online learning delivery methods, you'll be able to continue your busy dental practice while you study. You'll have the opportunity to treat patients from initial record taking, diagnosis, treatment planning, bonding of fixed appliances and issue of retainers. These finished cases will be supervised and assessed by a national and international faculty.
