Course content

This programme fulfils the need for dental practitioners to have access to a higher dental degree which provides specialist clinical training in Endodontics.

The Professional Doctorate is a research qualification that contains Professional Skills Training. Students who successfully complete the DDSc programme in Endodontics will be awarded the DDSc (Endodontics) from the University of Liverpool and a MEndo from the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) of Edinburgh.

We accommodate many specialist dentistry interests through our partnership with the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust. Together we’ve created state-of-the-art facilities for specialist dentistry research and education, including the management of clinical trials to a high level of clinical governance.

The first six weeks of the programme will be focussed on intensive phantom head training where you will learn all the necessary skills to treat patients clinically. Then you will move to your clinical placement, dealing with real patients and using specialist equipment, whilst being supervised by specialists in the field.

Both Endodontics Specialist Curriculum and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh blueprints in Endodontics are embedded into the programme.
