Student Profile

Dr Daniel Caga, Associated Dentist

Graduated in 2020

After completing the FGDP (UK) Diploma in Restorative Dentistry you enrolled in the University of Kent’s MSc Advanced Dental Clinical Practice accelerated pathway. What attracted you to studying the MSc Advanced Dental Clinical Practice programme?

Towards the end of the FGDP programme the options to complete an MSc top-up year were highlighted. Dr Debbie Reed, from the Centre for Professional Practice at the University of Kent came in to discuss the MSc in Advanced Dental Clinical Practice. I appreciated Dr Reed actually attended the Dip Rest Dent study day and I enjoyed the lecture, and was interested in the design of the top-up year. I was also drawn to the MSc due to the cost, as well.

What did you particularly enjoy on the Master’s programme? How would you describe the teaching at the University of Kent?

The Master’s programme was very well organized, with all the modules being linked to the ultimate final dissertation module. Therefore, the programme flowed very well. I really enjoyed meeting the tutors and my colleagues on the course. We formed a very good relationship during the programme that has continued after the course has finished. The teaching at the University is brilliant. The lecturers were all professional in how they provided their lectures. They were all very approachable if and when I had a question which is vital for a distance learning course. I have heard of many distance learning students struggling with communication with their institutes and this was not the case with the University of Kent.

What did you think about the assignments you were given? Did you feel well supported in your studies at the University of Kent?

The support on the course was very good. Tutors responded to questions very quickly, and their input was also positive. I feel my assignments benefitted from this input. The assignments were very useful, they all culminated in the dissertation module, so we were able to work up to completing the research project and write up.

How would you describe your fellow Master’s students?

They are very good friends now. We have come through the MSc programme together and managed to form a great bond with one another. Having other dentists on the course was very useful when designing and running the dissertation project, as we could tap into one another’s clinical experiences and this enhanced each individual project.
