Course Summary

Course description

Our MSc Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics (Dental Specialties) course is ideal for dental practitioners who want to learn more about this field.

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 six clinical sessions per week where you will see, assess and treat patients.

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


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
  • 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 and technical sessions, seminars, e-learning and lectures.

Career opportunities

Most graduates return to their practices. A smaller number go on to pursue further clinical training in fixed and removable prosthodontics or undertake higher research degrees (eg MPhil or PhD).


Graduate students will be required to familiarise themselves with the clinical and technical techniques applicable to fixed & removable prosthodontic rehabilitation of adult patients: prescribed exercises will be assessed. The purpose of the pre-clinical course is to allow each student to revise existing techniques and develop these whilst also learning new ones. Satisfactory performance in this unit assessment is a requirement for progressing to clinical treatment on postgraduate clinics.
