What will I learn?

The Master of Science in Paediatric Dentistry is for dental graduates wanting to pursue a career in paediatric dentistry in a primary or secondary care setting or in academia. Paediatric dentistry encompasses many aspects of general dentistry and specialist skills in the care of infants, children and adolescents. The broad nature of the work requires a combination of medical, dental and communications skills. As part of the clinical training, you will be treating patients in consultant, trauma and sedation clinics. You’ll treat a wide range of medically compromised children, which may require you to liaise with paediatric specialists and anaesthetists prior to treatment under general anaesthesia. At the School of Dentistry we have an international reputation for our specialist areas of postgraduate study. As a result our Paediatric Dentistry postgraduate course attracts high-quality home and overseas applicants, including large numbers of non-publicly funded overseas students. The part-time course is open only to UK/EU applicants. International students should apply to the full-time course. The European Academy of Paediatric Dentistry (EAPD) aims to maintain and improve the quality of advanced education of Paediatric Dentistry in Europe. It has developed standards for educational instituitions to evaluate against. EAPD endorsement of this course testifies to the standard of training we provide.
