Course Summary

Course description

Our three-year MSc (Clin) Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics course is designed for dental practitioners who want to further their knowledge of prosthodontics up to specialist level.

You will develop skills in providing a range of procedures, including complex removable prostheses, implant-supported prostheses, integrated fixed and removable prostheses, and restoration of tooth wear using direct and indirect materials.

You will also gain an insight into clinical and technical skills, contemporary prosthodontic techniques, scientific understanding of fixed and removable prosthodontics, diagnosis and treatment planning and reflective prosthodontic practice.

You will undertake up to five clinical sessions per week where you will see, assess and treat patients. You will have the option to undertake more extensive treatment plans with further experience in the broader area of restorative dentistry.

Completion of this course will make you eligible to sit the MPros Royal College examination.

In addition, you will develop research planning and implementation skills through the dissertation unit.

Aims

This course aims to:

  • provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the complex issues involved in the scientific basis of fixed and removable prosthodontics;
  • develop your knowledge, skills and attitude to enable critical evaluation and problem solving for prosthodontic problems to allow you to practice independently at the appropriate level;
  • provide you with knowledge and clinical experience of fixed and removable prosthodontics (including an appreciation of an interdisciplinary approach to comprehensive patient care);
  • ensure you are competent in the design and interpretation of original clinical research (including data collection and statistical analysis);
  • enable you to plan, implement and complete a research project showing initiative and personal responsibility.

Teaching and learning

Our teaching and learning methods are designed to encourage you to take responsibility for your own learning and to integrate work with formal educational activities.

You will learn through clinical sessions, e-learning, lectures, clinical skills training, technical/laboratory skills training, seminars, and specialist courses in implants and endodontics.

Career opportunities

Most graduates return to their practices or university/hospital. A smaller number go on to undertake higher research degrees (eg MPhil or PhD).

Modules

The aim of the clinical units is to give the student an understanding of the scientific basis of fixed and removable prosthodontics, with particular emphasis on current theories relevant to the diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical management of adult patients.
