CREDITS: Equivalent to 14 ECTS.
MODALITY: 7 modules, 1 per month approx.


Through this program, the student will get familiar with the principles of Esthetic Dentistry, and the importance of interdisciplinary approach in achieving optimal results, focusing on minimally invasive dentistry as a basic premise. Through an adequate esthetic (esthetic and dynamic) diagnosis of peribuccal, gingival and dental parameters, the student will be able to elaborate an interdisciplinary treatment, to plan and to solve all kinds of cases. A special stress will be put to diagnosis and treatment plan, aided by a smile design program. With a knowledge of laboratory procedures, a student will be able to understand different tests that should be carried out, and the importance of a correct communication between the laboratory technician and a clinician. During this course program, different materials and restoring techniques which form a part of the smile rejuvenation treatment and adhesive oral rehabilitation will be taught, i.e.: teeth whitening, veneers (composite or ceramic), direct reconstructions, different types of incrustations, metal-free restorations and management of gingival architecture and emergency profiles both in fixed prosthesis and implants.


  • Theory classes.
  • Pre-clinical and laboratory hands-on classes.
  • Part-time in-person classes.

During the Diploma program, all our students will assist the lectures and hands-on workshops given by professionals of national prestige, experts in dental esthetics problems. The reading of the bibliography provided by teaching staff is recommended, as well as the attendance of national meetings of related scientific societies.


After finishing the program and passing the continuing evaluation exams required during the course, the student will be given an unaccredited Diploma in Esthetic Dentistry issued by Athenea Dental Institute:
