This course has evolved from the successful three year MSc Endondontics programme and has been re-designed in response to student feedback. Now run over two years and with much of the academic delivery online, this course enables the busy dental practitioner to not only study much of the course material from home, but also with the opportunity to treat patients under the direct clinical supervision of experienced consultants and specialists. As part of the changes, we have added four days of supervised clinical training, and moved much of the academic teaching to a modern, online delivery model.

This programme is delivered by experienced clinicians and educators. Successful completion of this two year programme leads to the award of an MSc Endodontics from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), a UK University well known as a provider of high quality clinical training and education.

Further Information

As a student on this course you will have access to excellent online materials to guide and support your learning.

This course will provide authentic clinical training and education, delivered both online and face-to-face that will prepare you to provide safe and appropriate endodontic treatment as part of your clinical practice.

The course will also provide the busy General Dental Practitioner with a part-time educational route to acquire the skills and knowledge required of a Dentist with enhanced skills. This programme focuses on contemporary practice, teaching evidence-based principles and systems to ensure an optimal outcome for the patient and practitioner.

During the course you will be expected to attend up to 20 study/assessment days per year. Many of these sessions will be within the School of Dentistry on the main UCLan Preston Campus, though some sessions will be timetabled in the UCLan Dental Clinic, where you will be supported to assess, undertake and ultimately lead in clinical treatment. To accompany the study days, much of the course content, including lecture notes, PowerPoint slides, videos of lectures and assignments will be delivered to you via the University’s eLearn system allowing you to both prepare work for study days and undertake additional work independently from your home location.

Work in the early part of the course will comprise plenary lectures and practical sessions in our state-of-the-art phantom head facility, and work on pig’s head and similar systems. As you move through the first year of the course you will progress to working on live patients under close supervision in the UCLan Dental Clinic. Here skills will be developed and assessed through Direct Observations of Procedural Skills (DOPS). The academic underpinning that supports this discipline will be developed though presentations, directed reading and case-based discussions, which you and others in the group will be expected to prepare and lead. Group sizes are generally small (typically <12 per cohort) leading to an informal and supportive learning environment where you can ensure that your own learning needs are being met.

We must of course have assessments and examinations - these are designed to allow you to monitor your progress and guide your learning as well as testing your core knowledge and skills at regular intervals throughout the programme. Assessments focus on your higher level skills of diagnosis and planning, rather than simply remembering facts. Typical assessments would include analysis of given clinical cases, case presentations, practical tests, written examinations and critical essays.

Course Highlights

This course will develop your skills in:

  • Thorough case assessment and record taking
  • Treatment planning and case selection
  • Working under magnification
  • Contemporary techniques for cleaning and shaping canals
  • Irrigation and intracanal medication
  • 3-dimensional obturation
  • Restoration of the endodontically-treated tooth
  • Non-surgical re-treatments

Opportunities

For dentists looking to introduce endodontic treatment within their practice, this is the ideal course. During this course you will plan and treat patients under direct clinical supervision, in our UCLan Dental Clinic.
