Course Summary

Course description

Our MSc Endodontics (Dental Specialties) course is designed for experienced dental practitioners who want to learn more about endodontics, the branch of dentistry that deals with diseases of the tooth, dental pulp and surrounding tissues.

You will take units in research methods and biostatistics, as well as clinical units that explore related specialist areas such as:

  • the interfaces between endodontics and orthodontics;
  • implants and periodontics;
  • treatment of the younger and older patients;
  • comprehensive patient care;
  • the worn dentition;
  • microbial implications in endodontics.

You will learn how to undertake advanced and complex treatment modalities requiring an extended treatment period.

The remainder of the course comprises a dissertation that will help you learn how to prepare and carry out a supervised research topic, as well as develop the skills needed to discuss and defend your research and results in an oral examination.

Aims

The aims of the course are to:

  • equip you with skills in the design, execution and interpretation of clinical and clinically-related research (Research Methods unit);
  • provide you with skills in data collection, simple analysis and interpretation of clinical and clinically-related research (Biostatistics unit);
  • give you an understanding of the scientific basis of endodontics, with particular emphasis on current theories relevant to the diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical management of adult patients (specialist clinical units);
  • train you in the identification, formulation and implementation of a specific research project and gain experience of working independently while taking an evidence-based approach to your project (the dissertation).

Career opportunities

Graduates can develop careers in a range of areas including clinical practice, teaching and research.

This degree is for dentists who want to develop enhanced skills in endodontics. It will not allow registration as a specialist, but it will enhance a CV for those wishing to apply for specialist training.

Modules

The unit aims to equip the participant with a detailed knowledge of scientific background forming the basis of non-surgical and surgical management of endodontic diseases.
