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.
