About Dental Technology
Masters degrees in Dental Technology help postgraduates develop the skills to design and create dental prosthetics, along with restorative appliances such as dentures and braces.
Related subjects include Prosthodontics and Dental Implantology. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree in Dentistry or Medicine.
Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry is an essential part of Dentistry, helping treat patients who have suffered from disease and accidents, and providing a means for individuals to improve their health.
The techniques and methodologies involved in these courses differ widely, accommodating the latest research in modern dental technology. Practical training will include the analysis and development of different dental materials, digital dentistry and lab work. You may also investigate the governance of dental laboratories and policy surrounding public healthcare.
You might wish to specialise your studies towards your future career goals. For example, you could investigate ways to develop techniques in implantology to make implants more durable, and use this expertise within clinical practice.
Or, you may explore ways to improve the teeth whitening process for cosmetic procedures. This could include developing the technology that dental hygienists and cosmetic dentists use, or designing home kits for consumers.
