DentAlliance innovative Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses
DentAlliance is a partnership between the dental schools of National University of Singapore, University of Melbourne, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and King’s College London.
We have joined forces to reimagine education and curriculum development, to pursue new and transformative research and discovery initiatives, and to enhance professional practice in dentistry and the oral and craniofacial health sciences.
One of our first initiatives was CPD training focussed on 'Contemporary Global Trends in Clinical Dentistry & Future Perspectives'.
The programme featured interactive content, practical case studies, hands-on training and clinical insights from a range of international experts.
Supported by webinar content presented by leading dental clinicians from the four universities, in-person half-day workshops were available on:
- Crown lengthening surgery
- 3D orthodontic diagnosis
- Digital planning for aesthetic and functional success
- Third molar surgery
Professor Mike Curtis, immediate past Executive Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences at King’s, described:
“The combination of webinar and hands-on training provides participants with great opportunities to engage globally. Attendees visit regionally based hands-on training centres following the viewing of related webinars provided by leading international dental experts and peer networks in the UK, US, Australia and Singapore.”
