Course Summary

Who is this programme for?

The DClinDent in Paediatric Dentistry is a three-year, full-time programme which allows attainment of a Taught Professional Doctorate in Paediatric Dentistry.

The degree aims to provide doctoral-level educational opportunities to enable you to develop, consolidate and enhance your range of academic and clinical competencies. This will enable independent and reflective practice in Paediatric Dentistry.

Career opportunities

The programme is aimed at qualified dental practitioners who wish to further enhance their evidence-based knowledge and skills in paediatric dentistry to attain a Professional Doctorate.

You may also be interested in this programme if you are preparing for the Tri-Collegiate Specialty Membership Examination in Paediatric Dentistry.

The Tri-Collegiate Specialty Membership Examination facilitates access to the UK General Dental Council Specialist Register in Paediatric Dentistry. This allows you to practice as a specialist and with further training, gain appointment as a substantive/honorary NHS Consultant.

Likewise, if you are an overseas student, attainment of both a Professional Doctorate and a College Speciality Membership normally allows appointment within your own country at the Specialist/Consultant level.
