    Graduate Diploma of Orthodontics

    I chose JCU’s Graduate Diploma of Orthodontics because it has the academic component where we learn how to diagnose and plan treatments… and a practical component where we treat patients in the JCU clinic. The course offers experienced teachers and practical, relevant content with the flexibility we need.
