The University of Warwick has pioneered dental postgraduate edcuation, based in approved primary care centres, and prides itself on providing the highest level of support for its students, as befits an institution regularly ranked within the top 10 UK universities.

Due to recent proposed changes in the structure of UK postgraduate dental education, which not only affect eligibility for Royal College of Surgeons qualifications, but also, with the new NHS dental contract, Department of Health dentists with extended skills (DES) status, the University is to re-align our MSc in Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry programme, to maximize the opportunities which the aforementioned changes in UK postgraduate dentistry will offer.

We believe that this will offer our successful dental postgraduates even greater opportunities to further their careers.

-Hold a license to practise dentistry (BDS or LDS or international equivalent)
-Be a current member of the General Dental Council, or international equivalent for overseas candidates

-Have a minimum of two years’ clinical experience

If your first language is not English, you must have completed an English language test in advance. We require an IELTS score of at least 6.5 overall (with 6.5 in the reading and writing components), PTE (Pearson Test of English) score of 55. If you have scored below this, you may be offered pre-sessional English language training at the University.

Course detail

- Description

Offered in response to the dental profession’s push towards a minimum intervention, preventive approach to caring for patients' oral health in both general and private practice, both in the UK and abroad, this unique and comprehensive flexible learning programme is designed for oral health care providers (dentist and/or DCP).

The curriculum includes the scientific basis of Cariology and disease pathology; detection, diagnosis, risk assessment and care planning for patients with complex dental health problems; prevention and control management strategies (including remineralisation) for patient groups and individuals; developing targeted marketing strategies to promote your practice and the MI care philosophy to patients using the latest social media frameworks; practice and business management skills; minimally invasive tooth preserving aesthetic clinical treatment of patients with caries and other restorative or aesthetic problems, and learning research methodology to enable completion of a useful practice-based research project.

- Intensive Face-to-Face Course

The course will feature two intensive face-to-face internships in year one (five days) and year two (seven days) of the programme, in London, when the participants will receive hands-on clinical training under expert supervision. The King's College London Dental Institute facilities at Guy’s Hospital and LonDEC provide delegates with some of the finest state-of-the-art dental teaching facilities available in the UK and Europe.

- Course purpose

The programme provides the latest evidence-based knowledge in Minimum Intervention care and minimally invasive tooth tissue preserving operative dentistry. It enables participants to integrate this patient care and oral health philosophy with suitable marketing and practice management strategies, into their general or private practice. It will develop team-care practice skills using DCPs where appropriate alongside other aspects of restorative dentistry and encourages practice-based research, with a hope to setting up UK or international clinical research networks.

- Course format and assessment

This flexible learning master's programme will be assessed through a combination of assignments, some written examinations, clinical case presentations and a dissertation. In the first two years, some modules are assessed by a combination of 60 per cent written examination and 40 per cent written assignments. For each module, you must complete a self-assessment exercise, a formative assignment and a final summative essay/assignment, to be entered into the end of year written examinations.

During the course, clinical work is also undertaken which is assessed by submission of clinical case presentations, both written or online. In the final year, you will be allocated a supervisor, undertake a research project and write a dissertation. If you fail an assessment element at the first sitting, you will be permitted one further attempt. Exams can be taken in London or, for overseas students, at centres in the student's country of residence.

Overseas examinations incur an additional fee payable to the Examinations Office. Further details of overseas exam arrangements and applicable fees can be viewed here: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/campuslife/services/examinations/exams/pep/pep.aspx

Career prospects

It is expected that graduates from this programme will develop a profitable network of “MI” centred dental clinics offering team expertise and higher skill levels to manage their patients, using the patient-centred, team-care approach. It is hoped this qualification may be used as further specialisation in general dental practice, enhancing profitability and encouraging future practice-based research opportunities.
