You will receive close supervision and support when treating patients throughout the course. All clinical facilities, equipment and materials are provided.

What's so good about Prosthodontics at Dundee?

The School of Dentistry at the University of Dundee is based in the Dental School and Hospital and is located on the University's city campus. The Dental School, which was inaugurated in 1916, is at the forefront of research, teaching and clinical dental practice and benefits from being an integral part of the College of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing.

The Dental School performs consistently well in league tables for both research and teaching. The University of Dundee Dental School is a top UK dental school as noted in the Guardian University Guide 2011 and The Complete University Guide.

The Dental School has a reputation as a supportive and nurturing environment which gives students the opportunity to fulfil their aspirations to achieve excellence clinically and academically.

Teaching & Assessment

This course is taught by staff in the School of Dentistry.

The course is two years long and begins every second year, in September (2012, 2014, 2016 etc), and finishes at the end of June in the second year. Teaching follows the European week, i.e. Mondays to Fridays inclusive.

How you will be taught

Students will attend lectures, seminars and laboratory demonstrations. Students will treat patients under supervision on two half days per week, and carry out some of the laboratory work as advised by course tutors. More than one module may be taught concurrently and clinical work will be undertaken on regular sessions throughout the course.

Provision will be made for personal study time throughout the course and students are expected to make good use of this time to prepare for the assessments and to read widely on the subject of prosthodontics.

What you will study

Every candidate for the Degree shall be required to undertake the prescribed course of study and submit a dissertation. Candidates will be required to present themselves for examination, including oral examination.

The various aspects of fixed prosthodontics will be performed on a phantom head before proceeding to the clinic as it is considered important to thoroughly revise techniques to ensure a high standard of clinical work. This includes endodontics, post preparation, core build-ups and preparations for inlays, crowns, bridges and resin-retained bridges.

There are eight modules, all of which must be completed satisfactorily, together with a research project. The modules and their associated SCQF (the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework) credits are as follows:

Introductory module (20 credits)
Radiology Decontamination and infection control
Communication and IT skills
Clinical photography
Dental caries - diagnosis and management
Periodontal disease - diagnosis and management
Treatment planning in Restorative Dentistry
Health care law and administration
Complete dentures (20 credits)
Partial dentures (20 credits)
Operative and adhesive dentistry (20 credits)
Endodontics (20 credits)
Laboratory-fabricated restorations (20 credits)
Applied dental materials (20 credits)
Dentistry for the elderly (10 credits)
Dissertation, including research methods and basic statistics (30 credits)

How you will be assessed

Assessment will be comprised of a one-hour written short-answer examination for each taught module. Reports of four cases treated by the candidate will be presented to the external examiner at the final examination at the end of the course.

Students carry out a research project related to fixed and removable prosthodontics or dental materials and produce a typed and bound dissertation. This will include a critical review of the literature. It is anticipated that the proportion of time spent on the research project should be approximately 25% of the course.

The results of the module assessments and the logbook of clinical activity will be scrutinised by the examiners.

All components will carry equal weighting and candidates must achieve a pass in all examination.

Careers

This course provides good preparation for the MFDS examination of the Royal Colleges but is not approved for eligibility to sit the MRD examination.
