Aesthetic dentistry is one of the most popular, rewarding and constantly evolving fields of interdisciplinary dentistry. There is a growing demand amongst patients for their dentists to offer sound restorative options that result in natural-looking, rehabilitated dentitions.

Here at UCL Eastman we offer a variety of degree and CPD programmes, designed for those who wish to remain at the cutting edge of contemporary dentistry. Our graduates are able to meet and deliver with confidence, the needs of patients with high aesthetic expectations.

Emphasis is placed in acquiring knowledge, understanding and skills in the areas of aesthetic restorations, contemporary biomaterials and evidence-based clinical procedures and techniques.

The format for all our aesthetic programmes is: morning interactive lectures with ample clinical cases; followed by afternoon hands-on training. Hands on is conducted in our state-of-the-art skills lab and clinic, always in small groups with one instructor per four or five students. We provide all equipment and evidence-based selected materials for the exercises. We provide a compilation of handouts and, in the case of our certificate programme, a designated textbook.
