Course Summary

Our MSc in Advanced Restorative and Periodontal Practice is ideal for busy dental hygienists and therapists seeking to enhance their skills and knowledge whilst also continuing their professional practice.

The course is delivered via blended learning, using a combination of online delivery, face-to-face learning and practical sessions at an approved regional training centre. Led by experienced clinicians and educators, it focuses on contemporary practice and evidence-based principles and systems. This approach ensures an optimal outcome for both patient and practitioner.

On completion, you’ll be ready to provide safe and appropriate periodontal and restorative treatment as part of your clinical practice.
