The Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry (PGDipClinDent) may be undertaken full-time (one year) or part-time (two years) at the Faculty of Dentistry depending on the endorsement. Clinical and academic teaching will be evidence-based and will emphasize the comprehensive nature of dental practice with integration of clinical and non-clinical disciplines. Current knowledge of clinical practice and related sciences will be emphasized. Clinical practice, seminars, assignments, case presentations and problem-based learning will be employed as teaching methods.
Please note completion of postgraduate study does not automatically enable you to work as a dentist in New Zealand. You must first complete the Dental Council of New Zealand's registration examinations. Please follow this link to the Dental Council: dcnz.org.nz/i-want-to-practise-in-new-zealand/
