Course Summary

Prosthodontics is a specialist area of dentistry which focuses on the replacement of missing teeth and surrounding tissues with dental prostheses such as crowns, bridges, implants and dentures. Our Master’s in Clinical Dentistry (MClinDent) is ideal if you’re a dental professional who’s looking to advance your skills in this area.

On this course you’ll undertake authentic clinical training and education, delivered both online and face-to-face, preparing you to provide safe and appropriate prosthodontic treatment as part of your clinical practice. The main focus is on patient management and the delivery of appropriate, evidence-based clinical care. There are supporting modules on critical appraisal, research strategies and clinical audit.

During this two-year course you’ll attend teaching sessions within the School of Dentistry on our Preston Campus. The early part of the course will consist of lectures together with practical sessions in our state-of-the-art phantom head facility. You’ll then progress to working on live patients under close supervision in the University’s Dental Clinic. Here you’ll be supported to assess, undertake and ultimately lead in clinical treatment.
