Campus Taught

For dentists looking to introduce dental implants within their practice, this is the ideal course. Our MSc Clinical Implantology combines home study with the opportunity to treat patients under the direct clinical supervision of experienced consultants. Busy dental practitioners can gain the skills and knowledge required of a Dentist with Special Interest (DwiSI) over one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study.

Why study with us

  • Examine patients, create treatment plans, place and restore dental implants, all under direct clinical supervision at one of our approved Clinical Training Centres.
  • Gain the academic skills needed to critically appraise published work within dental and oral health related journals, and to understand how dental research is carried out in order to prepare you for your research project.
  • The University works in conjunction with governing dental bodies, ensuring that the curriculum facilitates the development of transferable skills, which you can apply to your clinical practice.

What you'll do

  • Benefit from a focus on Continuing Professional Development, allowing General Dental Practitioners the opportunity to further their skills and education in their chosen area of interest while maintaining their clinical practice.
  • Learn from a highly-regarded course team led by an Oral Surgeon and Maxillofacial Consultant. Clinical supervision is provided by experienced clinical staff with a proven track record in the successful use of techniques and approaches in primary practice environments.
  • Focus on contemporary knowledge in Dental Implantology – we teach evidence-based principles and systems to ensure an optimal outcome for both patient and practitioner.
