Course content

Do you have the enhanced skills in advanced care that are needed in the new dental contract? Dental practitioners who do are likely to be commissioned to provide specialised services under the proposed new dental contract. Periodontology is just one of those specialised services you could be commissioned to do.

If you are a registered dentist, our MSc Periodontology course provides an educational route for you to acquire advanced skills and knowledge in periodontology:
-Gain experience in our purpose-built dental skills labs and clinical patient care facilities
-Make your studies fit around your busy working life through our flexible study options
-Expand your knowledge and interests in a broad range of dental disciplines
-Learn from experienced clinicians who provide expert oral health care in clinical settings
-Reinforce and enhance the skills which are required for everyday clinical practice

You gain a broad and critical understanding of the key concepts underlying clinical periodontal practice. At Essex, you critically appraise research findings and develop your own evidence-based practice.

If you are a hygienist or hygienist/therapist we also offer our MSc Advanced Periodontal Practice.

Professional accreditation

We are committed to embedding the NHS Constitution Values (which are strongly reflected in our University values) into everything we do. They define the behaviours and expectations of all our staff and students, underpinning the work we do in the university, clinical arena and other workplaces.

We understand that not all of our students and staff are employed within the NHS, but these values uphold the underlying principles of excellent care as a standard and as such we expect that anyone who has any aspect of their work which ultimately cares for others will aspire to uphold these values.

For us, involving not only our students but service users, experts by experience, carers and NHS/non -NHS professionals in the creation and delivery of all programmes is vital.

Specialist facilities

The School of Health and Human Sciences is located at two sites; in the Kimmy Eldridge building at our Colchester Campus and in the Gateway Building at our Southend Campus.

The Oral Health Science facilities are centred in the Gateway Building, and MSc Periodontology is taught both at our Southend Campus and in our purpose-built academic dental clinic. We offer clinical laboratories with the very latest equipment and IT facilities - in particular, a state-of-the-art dental skills lab with the latest simulation ‘phantom heads’ to practise on.
