Course content

The Master of Science in Paediatric Dentistry is for dental graduates wanting to pursue a career in paediatric dentistry in a primary or secondary care setting or in academia.

Paediatric dentistry encompasses many aspects of general dentistry and specialist skills in the care of infants, children and adolescents. The broad nature of the work requires a combination of medical, dental and communications skills.

As part of the clinical training, you will be treating patients in consultant, trauma and sedation clinics. You’ll treat a wide range of medically compromised children, which may require you to liaise with paediatric specialists and anaesthetists prior to treatment under general anaesthesia.

The Leeds School of Dentistry has an international reputation in the specialist areas of postgraduate study. Its Paediatric Dentistry postgraduate programmes attract high-quality home and overseas applicants, including large numbers of non-publicly funded overseas students.
