Our Prosthodontics MClinDent offers you the opportunity to learn fixed, removable and implant prosthodontics from world-renowned academics and clinicians. You will receive personal supervision and training, both academic and practical, and we will teach you the skills and methods needed to complete an in-depth research project in an area which interests you.

Sixty per cent of the programme is dedicated to clinical experience. Teaching styles include close mentoring, chair-side guidance and small group work that emphasises the importance of the evidence base in literature and creates new research opportunities.

Key benefits

  • One of the largest specialist prosthodontics courses in the UK.
  • Teaching from internationally renowned prosthodontists.
  • A fully integrated course with teaching in implants, and fixed and removable prosthodontics.
  • Preparation for the MRD RCS Edinburgh assessment, or equivalent mono-specialty membership examination.
  • Strong links with other restorative specialties.

Description

Our course covers the scientific background to implants, fixed and removable prosthodontics and clinical techniques. You will study anatomy, physiology, histology and pathology of the dental and oral tissues, occlusion, epidemiology and prevention of dental caries and tooth wear, properties of dental materials, and radiology, infection control and audit in relation to prosthodontics.

By the end of the course, which is formally recognised as part of UK specialist training, you will be a highly knowledgeable professional in prosthodontics at master's level, and proficient and skilful in related areas of restorative dentistry. You will achieve clinical proficiency in prosthodontics to a recognised UK specialist level and have the opportunity to sit for the membership examination with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

UK/EU practising dentists usually attend three days per week over four years. Practising dentists from overseas who have to relocate to take the course will generally attend five days per week over three years.

The course content is identical across both versions. 

Teaching styles include close mentoring, chairside guidance and small group work that emphasises the importance of the evidence base for prosthodontics in the literature and creates new research opportunities. A research project is also undertaken.

Course format and assessment

Teaching

The usual training period will be a minimum of 4,500 hours over the degree.

The course content is apportioned approximately as:

  • 60% clinical
  • 25% academic
  • 15% research

This time allocation is flexible and will depend upon the capacity of the trainees to complete the curriculum to a competent level.

Standard university term times do not apply to this course. You will receive a leave allowance for each academic year with full details provided on enrolment.

Assessment

Your three taught academic modules will be assessed by written examination. Your five clinical modules will be assessed on coursework, with oral and clinical examinations. Your research module will be assessed by a dissertation and oral examination.

The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change.
