Course content

Our three-year MSc (Clin) Periodontology course focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease. You will learn the skills needed to critically evaluate and solve problems relating to periodontology.

Your research skills will also be developed as you learn how to design research projects, collect data, conduct simple analyses and interpret the results.

These projects may be within areas such as genetics, microbiology or biomaterials.

Your research will benefit from our links with the Cochrane Oral Health Group and the World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for the Treatment of Cranio-Facial Anomalies.

Our course is also designed to prepare you to become a Member in Restorative Dentistry through the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
