Course content

The aim of this programme is to deliver a high quality taught endodontic course. It is aimed at overseas students and home students who would like to develop their existing endodontic knowledge and skills so that they may confidently diagnose and treat more complex cases. It will run in parallel with the MDSc in Prosthodontic course allowing a more synergistic approach to learning and improving understanding between these dental disciplines.

The programme will be structured to provide students with extensive and detailed knowledge of the subject and to develop a critical understanding of current literature, which will focus on evidence-based and contemporary principles.

Preclinical training will be provided in a modern clinical skills laboratory with microscope teaching facilities and students will progress to treat patients on a clinic with integral microscopes conducive to providing modern, high quality endodontic treatment.

There are nine modules, all of which must be passed, together with a research project:

  • Preparing for specialist clinics
  • Operative and adhesive dentistry
  • Applied dental materials
  • Dissertation
  • Foundation of endodontics
  • Endodontic treatment
  • Nonsurgical endodontic retreatment
  • Periradicular surgery
  • Advanced endodontic practice

The course Lead, Dr Tait, is an experienced teacher of UGs and PGs and has successfully led the UG endodontic programme in Dundee for several years. She has also vast endodontic clinical experience obtained in specialist practice.
