Orthodontics MClinDent

Course Description

Programme description

The Specialist Advisory Committee in Orthodontics has approved this degree as part of the training programme in orthodontics. It provides you with a deeper understanding of, and further technical and diagnostic skills in, orthodontics.

It involves a large clinical component as well as your own research project.

You will learn to:

diagnose anomalies of the dentition
detect development deviations
formulate a treatment plan and predict its course
evaluate the need for orthodontic treatment
carry out treatment using fixed, functional and removable appliances
treat adults, orthognathic, surgical cases and cleft-palate patients
In addition to developing your scientific approach, the programme will teach you the psychological aspects of treatment.

Programme structure

The programme begins with an introduction of core topics, followed by an introduction to our laboratory facilities and the basics of wire-bending skills, appliance design and appliance construction and mechanics.

Clinical patient care is also established early within the first term.

This is followed by five structured terms of theoretical seminars and tutorials, with diagnostic tests on your knowledge carried out regularly.

There are written examinations at the end of each term. You must pass the written examinations at the end of the first year before proceeding to the second year.

Your final MClinDent examination will consist of written examinations, diagnostic tests, case presentations, and the presentation of your research dissertation.

This programme has been designed for orthodontist specialists.
