Course Summary

Overview

Our ground-breaking course provides training to a specialist level for dental technicians, maxillofacial prosthetists and dentists. Students are exposed to multiple teaching styles which include consultant-led clinics, chair-side guidance, small group work and close mentoring, with emphasis on the importance of evidence base in the literature. Instruction is consistent with the demands of the IMPT Curriculum for Maxillofacial Prosthodontics and recognises how this interrelates with other rehabilitation skills.

Course detail

The course teaches clinical and technical aspects for the provision of facial and ocular prostheses, orbital and skull cranioplasties and obturators. It also includes recognising oral disease, infections and skins lesions directly related to the provision of intra- and extra-oral prostheses and core teaching in all restorative disciplines. Examples of research areas include: investigation into digital technologies used in colour formulation of facial prostheses, biocompatibility of titanium to hard and soft tissue for cranioplasties, bonding of acrylic to silicone and patient centred outcomes of implant treatment. For both overseas and UK/EU applicants, the course provides training to dental technicians and dentists at specialist level in maxillofacial and craniofacial technology.

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 This course is primarily taught at King’s College London Guy’s Campus with some seminars and clinics also at Denmark Hill Campus. The clinical module is assessed by a combination of clinical examination, oral examination and clinical and technical logs. The research module is assessed by a project and an oral examination. The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change.
