Course content

Our Aesthetic Dentistry MSc is an innovative programme that will give you the skills and knowledge to provide high-quality functional dental restorations with optimal aesthetic value. The course focuses on training you to provide dental care where there is a clinical need to restore oral health and function, and also covers cosmetic and facial techniques. This course is mostly delivered online, so you can study anywhere in the world with minimum disruption to your professional and personal life while benefitting from world-class teaching.

Key benefits

  • Internationally renowned centre of excellence for teaching and research in dentistry.
  • Pioneers of distance learning in dentistry with over 20 years’ experience.
  • Intensive face-to-face residential blocks to learn and practice contemporary clinical techniques at world-class training facilities.
  • Course material delivered by a team of highly experienced clinical tutors and academics, many of whom are world-leaders in their field.
  • Multi-authored online course text material supported by extensive references and access to institutional library facilities.
  • Online support through regular webinars and tutorials presented by core staff and expert tutors.

Description

This course is ideally suited to dentists who already have an established dental practice and want to study an evidence-based approach to aesthetic treatment. Our programme director, Dr Subir Banerji, has helped many dental graduates, both nationally and internationally, to achieve their postgraduate goals, broadening their horizons and delivery of dental care.

  • You will explore all aspects of smile design, from non-invasive to full coverage techniques involving a range of aesthetic materials.
  • You will study all restorative aspects applicable to aesthetic dentistry with an emphasis on functional stability, predictability and longevity of the aesthetic outcome.

Please note - The provision of any clinical opinions, treatment planning, treatment plans and/or any advice in relation to care of individual patients will not be provided by the teachers and staff of the programme. Patient treatment and care is the sole responsibility of the treating clinician. Advice regarding the suitability of a clinical case for submission for the clinical module can be given at the tutor’s discretion.

In March 2017, Dr Subir Banerji and Dr Shamir Mehta released a book titled Practical Procedures in Aesthetic Dentistry. This book presents a comprehensive collection of videos demonstrating clinical techniques in aesthetic and restorative dentistry, and is accompanied by a handbook summarising the key points of each procedure. The book also includes:

  • Interactive website hosting over nine hours of video
  • Accompanying illustrated handbook summarising key points
  • Expert teaching across a comprehensive range of aesthetic and restorative procedures
  • International team of contributors with clinical and academic expertise

Further information is available on the publishers website here.

Intensive face-to-face training blocks

Delivered primarily online, the course also provides 19 days of intensive teaching and practical training in London. Our expert tutors will give you guidance on complex dental procedures at our specialist postgraduate teaching centre, LonDEC, situated at our Waterloo Campus, which offers state-of-the-art dental training facilities. These blocks are an invaluable way to consolidate learning and progress to the final year. 

Teaching

You will be taught mostly online through King's E-learning and Teaching Service (KEATS) which provides information, interactive questions, assignments, use of bibliographic databases and reading material. This gives you the freedom to study without interrupting your work and personal life, and to put your skills directly into practice. Our students participate in online tutorials and discussion groups, interacting with expert tutors and their fellow students. Face-to-face lectures and hands-on training take place in blocks in the first two years. Students are required to undertake and build a reflective log of clinical work in their own general practice. 

Course format and assessment

60% per cent of each module will be assessed through exams and 40% through assignments, with the exception of the Case Reports modulewhich is assessed through a clinical log book and the Final Report module, which is a 10,000-word written assignment.

You can take your exams in London or, for overseas students, at centres in your country of residence.
