Applications are invited from suitably qualified dental surgeons, registered with the General Dental Council and included in the Specialist List for Restorative Dentistry. Applications are also welcome from dental surgeons who are within 6 months of their anticipated CCST completion date.

The Institute is the sole provider in Scotland of education and training in dental technology offering a blended learning programme leading to a Diploma in Higher Education (DipHe)
