Advanced Dentistry Institute

The Advanced Dentistry Institute

was started by Dr. Yohan Thomas in 2013 to enable general dentists to gain practical skills working on live patients.

Our courses are based on a 5-day model with one-to-one mentorship for each candidate for each of the courses.

We attract expert dental educators from around the world who uphold similar stands for each of our courses.

Dr. Thomas has designed the intake of students to be low to maintain these standards.

Each graduate gains university-level knowledge and skills that they can implement in their practice immediately upon completion.

The Advanced Dentistry Institute is recognised as one of the leading course providers in Australia and New Zealand.

Dr Thomas is a Specialist Prosthodontist based in Adelaide South Australia, he has been involved with teaching and guiding students at Adelaide Dental School for more than a decade. He has also been a mentor/tutor with the James Cook University Graduate Diploma in Implantology program.
He has been working in specialist private practice in Adelaide and Rural South Australia for over 16 years. Regularly lecturing and teaching nationally and internationally.
Dr Thomas’s passion is to teach and train the next generation of dentists and guide them in the best way possible and feels there is no substitute for practical hands-on learning in dentistry and that practice and constant learning makes us better than yesterday.
He is the course director at Advanced Dentistry Institute, constantly working on ways to help improve the learning process from theory to practical hands-on. He loves interacting and guiding dentists and says he himself is always learning something from every day.
