Course content

This course establishes the foundation for experienced dentists to develop their knowledge and clinical skills in endodontics, the branch of dentistry that deals with prevention of pathology and treatment of the dental pulp and surrounding tissues.

In addition, a custom designed communication course introduces students to Health Services Culture and Governance.

Students will be given the unique opportunity to:

  • Develop their skills and interests in this subject by interacting with national and international experts
  • Observe endodontics carried out to standards of excellence
  • Promote their personal development and management skills, enabling them to work independently as proficient clinicians with enhanced leadership skills at the end of the course
  • Treatment of complex endodontic cases, which may be integral to more comprehensive restorative treatment plans, will involve working with consultants/specialists in other disciplines, which will facilitate eligibility to sit Membership in Restorative Dentistry, RCS Edinburgh.

Students will also have the opportunity to interact with, and be taught by, national and international experts in their field, make visits to specialist endodontic practices in the UK and attend recognised national courses.
