Course Summary

This part-time, two-year postgraduate Endodontology course is for the busy dental practitioner who wants to combine home study with treating patients under the direct clinical supervision of experienced consultants and specialists.

The course has been designed in response to student feedback and has evolved from our successful three-year MSc.

Much of the academic delivery is online, so you can study from home, and small group sizes, usually 12 or less, means there’s an informal and supportive learning environment.

This course will develop your skills in:

  • Thorough case assessment and record taking
  • Treatment planning and case selection
  • Working under magnification
  • Contemporary techniques for cleaning and shaping canals
  • Irrigation and intracanal medication
  • 3-dimensional obturation
  • Restoration of the endodontically-treated tooth
  • Non-surgical re-treatments

Why study with us

  • Delivered by experienced clinicians and educators, the programme includes four days of supervised clinical training.
  • You’ll study at a University that is well known as a provider of high-quality clinical training and education with state-of-the-art teaching facilities.
  • 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.

Learning and assessment

You’ll start with plenary lectures and practical sessions in our state-of-the-art phantom head facility, working on a pig’s head and similar systems. You’ll then progress to treating live patients, under close supervision in our Dental Clinic, and be assessed by Direct Observations of Procedural Skills (DOPS).

You and your group will prepare and lead the academic aspect of the course with presentations, directed reading and case-based discussions.


This module will build upon your skills and knowledge that you have acquired in your previous academic study, in order to deliver safe and appropriate periodontal treatment within a primary dental care environment.
