Masters degrees in Clinical Dentistry explore the observation, diagnosis and treatment of diseases or damage to teeth and gums. They may also include an analysis of medical issues relating to the jaw and lower facial area. Specialisations include Periodontics, Endodontics, Prosthodontics and Orthodontics.
Paediatric Dentistry and Conservative Dentistry are examples of related subjects. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate Dentistry subject.
Clinical Dentistry is a highly vocational subject, where you’ll work directly with patients and learn first-hand about their needs through surgeries and dental practices.
You could explore medical issues ranging from tooth decay and hypodontia (missing / underdeveloped teeth) to cleft lips and palates. As mentioned above, there are several specialist areas such as Orthodontics, which involve treatments like dentures, implants and braces.
As well as vocational training, these courses also prepare you for the current state of the industry, investigating policy surrounding current practices and examining issues such as social care and government funding.
Clinical Dentists may work in a range of settings, from private and public healthcare centres, to hospitals and even prisons. You might also be interested in branching into charity work, focussing on humanitarian aid.
