Course content

If you are a dental graduate who wants to pursue a career in orthodontics this programme is for you. The Professional Doctorate Programme in Orthodontics provides an integrated three years training for dentists who aspire to be specialists, either in primary or secondary services, or clinical academics of the future. The DClinDent Degree integrates academic activities with clinical practice and research up to level 8 of FHEQ and covers all the topics in the GDC (UK) Specialist Curriculum. The degree is full-time and will provide a sound basis for developing an academic career and for preparing for a career as a specialist in the discipline of Orthodontics.

The three-year full-time DClinDent Degree programme has a strong emphasis on close chair-side support.

You will undertake the Final DClinDent examination (University of London) during the third year and may separately choose to also undertake the external Membership (MOrth) examination, with the Royal College of Surgeons.
