GBB Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Orthodontics
We, at GBB Group (Glasgow Orthodontic Academy, Brite Dental and the Berkeley Clinic), are aware of the growing demand for Postgraduate Orthodontic courses blended heavily with clinical orthodontic training. GBB Group and its Director Dr Mohammed Almuzian (a Specialist Orthodontist, University Lecturer, Reseracher and International Speaker) have been involved in the provision of short and long courses for over several years and having trained thousands of specialist registers, postgraduate students and dentists in the UK, Australia and the Middle East.
Although, Glasgow Orthodontic Academy is already collaborating with ACE in Orthodontic delivering three other successful Diploma courses in Orthodontics for the General Dental Practitioners (GDPs), two are based in London and one in Manchester, we felt that there is a high demand and need for an evidence-based Postgraduate Diploma course with strong Clinical component in which the GDPs can translate what they have learnt during the theory days and webinars directly on patients under direct supervision of Specialists Orthodontists. We strongly believe that our GBB Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Orthodontics (PGDip.Clin.Orth.) will achieve this! and will enable the GDPs to implement the knowledge they will acquire safely and practically into a general practice setting.
We have undertaken an extensive approval process with EduQual (a UK awarding body) who have granted our Orthodontic Diploma Level 7 status.
The course is designed and delivered by Specialist Orthodontists. The clinical session will be in Glasgow at The Berkeley Clinic, one of the most modern and cutting-edge dental practice in the UK.
Disclaimer: As with many postgraduate diplomas in dentistry, this PG diploma is not registerable with the GDC, but it is approved and recognised by a UK awarding body (EduQual). Graduates SHOULD NOT mislead the public into thinking that treatment is being provided by a Specialist.
