About the course

Develop your skills and expertise to a specialist level. Conforming to the GDC’s Specialist Curricula, the course covers the theoretical basis and practical skills needed to manage and treat periodontics and general restorative interdisciplinary cases.

You’ll use various complementary learning modalities, interacting with colleagues and allied specialties in restorative dentistry to jointly manage patient care. Over the three years, you’ll learn sophisticated research methods and apply them in a scientific research investigation, with specific outcomes for each year of study.

The programme has been approved by RCS Edinburgh as recognised speciality training for eligibility to sit their MRD examinations in the three sub-specialisms of Endodontics, Periodontics and Prosthodontics.

Your career

We offer clinical and non-clinical courses that will further your career and develop your interests. Many of our clinical graduates go on to specialist dental practice, hospital practice or academic posts.

World-leading dental school

Our internationally recognised oral and dental research is organised into two overarching themes: ‘clinical and person centred’ and ‘basic and applied’. These themes are supported by three interdisciplinary research groups: Bioengineering and Health Technologies, Integrated Bioscience, and Person Centred and Population Oral Health.

We believe that dental science should not be constrained by the traditional boundaries created by specific clinical disciplines and that progress derives from a multidisciplinary approach. Our research supports our teaching enabling a blended approach to learning.

Your course will make the most of virtual learning environments and advanced practical sessions, as well as traditional lectures and seminars.

Facilities

You’ll develop your clinical skills in one of our two clinical skills labs or in our new virtual reality Simulation Suite where you can use haptic technology to undertake a range of clinical techniques.

You’ll complete your clinical training in Sheffield’s Charles Clifford Dental Hospital, part of the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. There are 150 dental units with modern facilities for treatment under sedation, a well-equipped dental radiography department, oral pathology laboratories and a hospital dental production laboratory.

We have new modern research facilities and laboratories for tissue culture, molecular biology, materials science and histology- microscopy. All laboratories have dedicated technical support and academic expertise to guide you.

Our three-year MSc (Clin) Periodontology course focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease. You will learn the skills needed to critically evaluate and solve problems relating to periodontology.

Your research skills will also be developed as you learn how to design research projects, collect data, conduct simple analyses and interpret the results.

These projects may be within areas such as genetics, microbiology or biomaterials.

Your research will benefit from our links with the Cochrane Oral Health Group and the World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for the Treatment of Cranio-Facial Anomalies.

Our course is also designed to prepare you to become a Member in Restorative Dentistry through the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

Aims

The course aims to provide you with:

  • the knowledge, skills and attitudes fundamental to diagnosis and treatment of periodontics and related procedures;
  • the knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable critical evaluation and problem solving for periodontal problems to allow independent practice;
  • knowledge relating to the contemporary practise of periodontics (including an appreciation of an interdisciplinary approach to comprehensive patient care), to allow communication with both specialist and non-specialist audiences;
  • competence in the design and interpretation of original clinical research at the forefront of current dental research;
  • the knowledge and experience to plan, implement and complete a research project showing initiative and personal responsibility;
  • the knowledge, skills and attitudes to prepare you for advanced clinical practice in periodontics;
  • a comprehensive understanding of the complex issues involved in the scientific basis of periodontology.

Teaching and learning

We use a range of teaching methods in each unit to promote a stimulating and dynamic teaching environment. You will acquire the skills to enable you to work independently and effectively in an interdisciplinary clinical environment.

Our methods include seminars and lectures to both introduce and delve more deeply into key course concepts, as well as peer-to-peer and staff-to-student feedback and discussion through group work.

External bodies guide the subject areas we cover and the balance of formal teaching (seminars and lectures) to clinical experience to comply with standards for specialist level training. Additional, self-directed learning enables you to reflect upon your clinical work and skills, and the key concepts introduced within seminars.

We use a problem-based learning format for tutorials, enabling you to develop communication and presentation skills, as well as appreciate the relevance of scientific study to clinical practice.

The course is also designed to provide a foundation in research skills and methodologies to prepare you for further research or to pursue a clinical academic career. This complements the research project and dissertation, where MSc students have the opportunity to demonstrate the collation and presentation of information in this field.

The aim of the dissertation unit is to offer research training in the identification, formulation and implementation of a specific research project.

Through the clinical units, you will also be exposed to industrial partners and experts from outside the University in the seminar series and practical sessions, providing access to world-class clinical academics.

The course creatively incorporates the clinical expertise of specialists in periodontology from a variety of backgrounds, including specialist practice and hospital-based clinical academia, to support learning.

Coursework and assessment

Formal assessment for the Research Methods and Biostatistics components takes the form of two tutor-marked assignments per unit.

Assessment of each course unit generally follows a standard plan, which involves mid or end of unit assignments (eg literature reviews) and end of semester examinations (for each unit completed during the semester) in the format of OSCEs and written examinations, including MCQs/SBAs.

Clinical progress will be monitored using clinical logbooks and regular clinical competency assessments. Patient case reports outlined in your logbook will provide formative assessment of your clinical competencies during the course.

Prosthodontics: Course Director Professor Brian O'Connell

This programme prepares the student for the clinical practice of prosthodontics at specialist level and provides the basis for continuing professional development after completion of the programme. Students will thoroughly explore the prosthodontic literature and become competent in the clinical/laboratory aspects of fixed and removable prosthodontics, including dental implantology. Students will learn how to diagnose, plan and execute high quality prosthodontic treatment for a range of patients. They will have the opportunity to use state-of-the-art materials and equipment, including CAD-CAM restorations, computer-aided implant placement and fully adjustable articulators. The course explores the use of high strength ceramics and high-aesthetic situations. The Prosthodontic programme works closely with periodontics, especially in treatment planning for implant patients. In addition, students attend multidisciplinary clinics for the treatment of dental trauma, developmental disorders (including hypodontia) and cancer surgery defects.

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.
