Content is supplemented by online seminars and tutorials delivered by teaching staff.

The compulsory face-to-face component takes place for five consecutive days in September at King’s College London, Guy’s campus. This component will consist of four days of lectures, practical exercises, mock oral exams and tutor feedback, which will help to prepare students for the final exams taking place on the fifth day.

*In order to view and manipulate CT scans during your online self study activities, you will be required to use free software that only runs on Windows operating systems. More details will be given at the start of the course.

Notes for applicants

The course does not provide great detail on implant planning or image-guided planning/surgery, for which dedicated software is often required.

We have designed the postgraduate training for dentists who want to understand CBCT imaging and wish to write interpretation reports on CBCT scans of dento-alveolar region.

This course is not intended to train a dentist to become a radiologist. In UK, a radiologist is trained within a scheme approved by the regional LETB/Deanery, in a hospital setting, which requires minimum of 4 years full-time training and is examined by the Royal College of Radiologists.

Course format and assessment

The course is divided into modules. You will normally take modules totalling 60 credits.

You are required to take:

  • Physics and Regulations (20 credits)
  • Anatomy (20 credits)
  • Interpretation (20 credits)

Each module consists of 6 units. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work.

Students are assessed through a combination of coursework, written and oral examinations.

Bristol University Open Learning for Dentists is a very popular modular distance learning programme for students aiming to achieve the Certificate or Diploma in Postgraduate Dental Studies. Read more
Bristol University Open Learning for Dentists is a very popular modular distance learning programme for students aiming to achieve the Certificate or Diploma in Postgraduate Dental Studies. It provides a unique form of dental postgraduate education, designed for busy dental practitioners.

Students must complete three units (60 credits) from a choice of 11 to achieve the certificate or six units (120 credits) to achieve the diploma. Each unit provides a structured programme that involves reading, study days and assessments.

This method of study is not led by teachers in a classroom but is supported by tutors and administration at a distance, offering the flexibility to suit your personal needs. The units are specially written for the programme and are designed to be interactive, giving you the opportunity to think and learn for yourself. Following successful completion of the diploma, students may carry out a research project and prepare a dissertation to achieve an MSc.

All students applying for Postgraduate Dental Studies will initially be enrolled on to the certificate, and on satisfactory completion will be transferred to the diploma.

Occasional route of study]

The occasional route of study is an option for students who do not want a formal postgraduate qualification but still want to register for individual units. After successful completion of a unit, the student is awarded a transcript confirming that they have attained 20 credits; this could later be used in an application for Recognition of Prior Learning. CPD hours are also awarded. Students who have completed a unit via the occasional route may transfer to the certificate programme, subject to availability of places. The modular fee is the same regardless of the route of study.

Programme structure

The year is divided into three teaching blocks and students may only take one unit per block. Programme material is posted on Blackboard, an online learning environment. There are between one and four elements per unit and they contain assignments to be completed by the student. The units normally available are:
-Anxiety Management
-Conscious Sedation
-Endodontics
-Full Denture Prosthetics
-Law and Ethics
-Local Anaesthesia
-Periodontics
-Surgical Skills 1 and 2

There are one to two compulsory study days per unit, usually held on Fridays or Saturdays. These cover areas that do not lend themselves well to distance learning, such as hands-on sessions.

Careers

The aim of this programme is to inform and enhance the current practice of busy dental practitioners. In future some of the units may be helpful for gaining a contract with the NHS to provide clinical services as a Dentist with Special Interests or Dentists with Extended Services, which may be introduced in England.

Students are expected to undertake a research project. This can be laboratory or clinically based. The Dissertation accounts for 33.3% of the course, it is hoped that the projects will be presented at national and international conferences and be suitable for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

Course purpose

Our course is one of the best established in the UK. You will work hard, and we hope you will have fun here as well and have a memorable life experience.

Our aim is to develop you to the forefront of Paediatric Dentistry, as clinicians, teachers and future leaders. The clinical activity is predominantly based at St Thomas’ Hospital, Waterloo, with seminars and clinics at Guy’s Hospital, London Bridge and at King’s College Hospital, located in Denmark Hill.

Course format and assessment

Modular programme consisting of 180 credits.

  • Two taught modules, covering the scientific and clinical basis of Paediatric Dentistry usually assessed by written examination;
  • One clinical module, involving supervised clinical practice and examined by a mixture of coursework, clinical examination, oral examination and assessed essays
  • One research module assessed by a dissertation and an oral examination.

Extra information

As we are seeking to identify your suitability for this clinical environment, we expect our interviewees to adopt the dress code required of clinical dental students at King's. Further information will be given should you choose to apply. Entry to the programme is strictly dependent upon occupational health clearance that you are able to conduct exposure prone procedures (EPPs) before you start clinical work. This will assess your hepatitis B surface antigen and hepatitis C antibody status, HIV and TB status following the completion of a health questionnaire and a further health check before or at enrolment.

If offered a place on the course, overseas students are advised to be tested locally and send the results of these checks with the questionnaire, prior to a separate full test in the UK at the College's Occupational Health Department before term begins. All offers of a place on a programme are made subject to a satisfactory criminal conviction disclosure. If you are from overseas or have never lived in the UK before, you should contact the relevant authorities in your home country to arrange for the equivalent check to be conducted and/or a certificate of good conduct to be issued.
