What will I learn?

Overview

Our Periodontology MClinDent combines academic study, clinical skills training and research and offers exceptional, innovative teaching. A wealth of academic expertise will give you a thorough practical education in advanced clinical periodontology, including aesthetics, implants and contemporary surgical methods.

Course detail

Students will be exposed to research methods by seminars, extensive reviews of the classical and contemporary literature, critical appraisal of new scientific and clinical developments, and the completion of an in-depth literature review and a research project. Our students have recently investigated smoking and periodontal health, periodontal microbiology and immunology, clinical trials of periodontal treatment and oral hygiene methods, behavioural factors in periodontology and periodontal relationships to systemic health. You will achieve clinical proficiency in periodontics to a recognised UK specialist level and have the opportunity to sit for the membership examination with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. This course is available to study full-time over three years or over four years. The content is identical across both periods. Designed to provide extensive contemporary knowledge and clinical proficiency in periodontology, qualified dentists train on this course to UK specialist level. The course has formal recognition for UK specialist training and offers greater depth of knowledge and clinical skills than is required for general practice.

Teaching and assessment

We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment. Your three academic taught modules will be assessed by written exams. Your five clinical modules will be examined on case reports, with oral and clinical examinations, and clinical examinations on unseen patients. Your research module will be assessed by a project report and oral examination.
