Course Summary

This MSc in Dental Implantology programme at the University of Salford has been developed in partnership with ICE Postgraduate Dental Institute & Hospital. This partnership will allow you as a student to gain hands on supervised learning in a highly technical clinical setting.

The course is aimed at dental practitioners who hold a GDC registrable dental degree and 2 years post-qualification experience in hospital service or general dental practice.

You will:

  • Develop core knowledge, skills and clinical competencies to assess, manage and treat patients with tooth loss to a high standard, efficiently and safely
  • Gain the ability to evaluate and demonstrate evidenced-based practice
  • Gain knowledge and a critical awareness of current issues in the field of Dentistry
  • Obtain a comprehensive understanding of the principles of research enquiry
  • Learn transferable skills in communicating with a range of audiences, decision making and problem solving


Implant dentistry is widely recognised as an increasingly important aspect of career choice for the dental clinician. This is partly driven by patient demand, and partly due to technological developments in the field of digital dentistry.

Training in implant dentistry is not part of the undergraduate curriculum. Therefore, dentists who wish to provide implant treatment are required by GDC standards in the UK to complete formal education and training at the postgraduate level.

Further career prospects also include Research and Teaching. Previous students that graduated from the MSc in Dental Implantology have become mentors for the course and teach to Dental Nurses at ICE.


ICE Postgraduate Dental Institute and Hospital and the University of Salford run this MSc/PGDip programme jointly. As a learning centre, ICE consists of fully equipped teaching clinics, an operating theatre that is enabled to digitally transmit live surgery. This programme will allow you to gain hands on supervised study in a clinical setting.

Students can also exit with PGDip awards.


This module aims to enable you to assess and manage patients with tooth loss. Some of the Intended Learning Outcomes of this module include: Understand the basic principles of restorative implant treatment; Demonstrate the ability to write evidence based-treatment plans; Critically evaluate risk factors in implant success rates.
