Dentistry short courses

Continuing education for dentists
Established in 1947, Continuing Education in Dentistry at the University of Sydney aims to meet the professional development needs of dental practitioners.

We have since grown to offer a huge number of courses in endodontics, general dentistry, hygiene and therapy, implants, oral surgery, orthodontics, periodontics and prosthodontics. Each program is administrated by academics from within the Sydney Dental School and supplemented by speakers in private practice both locally and internationally.


Study options

From short courses through to seminars and courses designed to assist with practical exams, we offer a variety of flexible options to assist with your professional learning and CPD requirements.
