Our ground-breaking course provides training to a specialist level for dental technicians, maxillofacial prosthetists and dentists.

Students are exposed to multiple teaching styles which include consultant-led clinics, chair-side guidance, small group work and close mentoring, with emphasis on the importance of evidence base in the literature. Instruction is consistent with the demands of the IMPT Curriculum for Maxillofacial Prosthodontics and recognises how this interrelates with other rehabilitation skills.

Intake to this course takes place every two years. The next intake will be in September 2020 and applications will be accepted from 1 October 2019.

Key benefits

  • Clinical consultation and hands-on patient treatment.
  • Advanced technology, including 3D imaging/ modelling and 3D surgical planning.
  • Pre-operative planning and creation of anatomical models from digital data.
  • Participation in surgical observations and multidisciplinary team meetings.
  • Dissertation, including research methodology and experimental work.


The course teaches clinical and technical aspects for the provision of facial and ocular prostheses, orbital and skull cranioplasties and obturators. It also includes recognising oral disease, infections and skins lesions directly related to the provision of intra- and extra-oral prostheses and core teaching in all restorative disciplines.

Examples of research areas include: investigation into digital technologies used in colour formulation of facial prostheses, biocompatibility of titanium to hard and soft tissue for cranioplasties, bonding of acrylic to silicone and patient centred outcomes of implant treatment.
