Course Summary

Course overview

Restorative dentistry incorporates the mono-specialist disciplines of endodontics, periodontics, prosthodontics, and implant dentistry.

Our programme is designed to provide busy dental practitioners like yourself with the opportunity to study in a flexible manner, so you can continue your clinical work and learn at the times that suit you best.

How you’ll be assessed

You’ll be evaluated based on your ability to case assess, diagnose, create treatment plans and appropriately manage patients requiring restorative dentistry in the primary care setting. This will involve a variety of assessments, culminating in a final research dissertation.

You will not need to do any written exams. Your theoretical understanding will be assessed by multiple choice questions.

What you’ll study

Created by restorative dentistry specialists with vast experience in postgraduate education and assessment. This course will teach you how to conduct complex restorative treatments that are underpinned by a strong evidence base. As you develop your knowledge of the theories and concepts behind the practice, you’ll gain the expertise needed to bring an added dimension of understanding and analysis to your work.

You will:

  • explore dental issues and procedures with increasing complexity, while learning how to perform them safely and with confidence
  • develop an in-depth understanding of your own work and how to critically evaluate your own decision making
  • dive into deeper development of your practice, including key competencies for future career advancement.

Careers and opportunities

An MSc in Restorative Dental Science showcases your continued commitment to learning and honing your professional skills. You’ll be able to demonstrate a deep understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the oral hard and soft tissues relevant to restorative dentistry.

You’ll also be able to showcase an in-depth understanding of the aetiology and diagnosis of common diseases of the oral hard and soft tissues. Finally, you’ll have a critical and systematic understanding of the behavioural, clinical and technical procedures involved in the management of patients requiring restorative dentistry.

These abilities will not only equip you for future promotions and career opportunities in wider areas of dentistry, but also help you provide quality care for your patients.


You’ll explore the basic science underpinning common disease processes relevant to restorative dentistry, which affect the teeth/hard tissues, and the materials used to restore/replace dental tissues which have been affected.
