Course content

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 programmes in the UK to offer specialist training in prosthodontics.
  • Teaching from internationally recognised prosthodontists.
  • A fully integrated programme with teaching in implants, fixed and removable prosthodontics.


Our programme 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 our programme, 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.

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 programme 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

Modular programme consisting of 360 credits. Modules are grouped into three distinct types:

  1. Three taught modules, covering the scientific and clinical basis of prosthodontics, assessed by written examination;
  2. Five clinical modules, involving supervised clinical practice and examined by a mixture of case studies on treated and unseen patients, practical, or oral examinations;
  3. One research module, involving the submission of a research project report including a literature review, with an oral defence of the research.

Career prospects

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh has approved the programme for award of the MRD diploma after completion of specialist training. If you are on a Specialist Advisory Committee (SAC) approved training pathway leading to specialist accreditation, you will undertake additional clinical activity during your tenure that will complete your requirements for specialist certification with the General Dental Council (GDC).
