Course Summary

For dentists looking to introduce dental implants within their practice, this is the ideal course. Our MSc Clinical Implantology combines home study with the opportunity to treat patients under the direct clinical supervision of experienced consultants. Busy dental practitioners can gain the skills and knowledge required of a Dentist with Special Interest (DwiSI) over two years of part-time study.

This course is delivered off-campus, in Glasgow and Birmingham via blended learning, using a combination of online delivery, face-to-face learning and clinical sessions at an approved regional training centre. It prepares you to provide safe and appropriate dental implants as part of your clinical practice.

There’s also the opportunity for continued mentoring and support from the experienced clinicians and educators who deliver the course.

Why study with us

  • Examine patients, create treatment plans, place and restore dental implants, all under direct clinical supervision at one of our approved Clinical Training Centres.
  • Gain the academic skills needed to critically appraise published work within dental and oral health related journals, and to understand how dental research is carried out in order to prepare you for your research project in the 2nd year.
  • The University works in conjunction with governing dental bodies, ensuring that the curriculum facilitates the development of transferable skills, which you can apply to your clinical practice.

Future careers

Our MSc Clinical Implantology course provides the busy General Dental Practitioner with a route to acquire the skills and knowledge required of a Dentist with Extended Skills.

Upon completion, you may choose to pursue further training and development in either a clinical or academic domain.
