Course content

This MSc in Dental Implantology programme at the University of Salford has been developed in partnership with ICE Postgraduate Dental Institute & Hospital. This partnership will allow you as a student to gain hands on supervised learning in a highly technical clinical setting.

The course is aimed at dental practitioners who hold a GDC registrable dental degree and 2 years post-qualification experience in hospital service or general dental practice.

This MSc/PgDip in Dental Implantology Programme is aimed to equip you with core clinical skills and competency in both the restorative and surgical aspects of implant dentistry, through a combination of clinical support and academic teaching in accordance with the GDP/FGDP Training Standards in Implant Dentistry.

The course has been specifically designed to take the stress away from finding patients and provide a mentor to help you complete your first few cases with confidence. You will treat a minimum of 4 patients and learn to use multiple-implant systems. Your supervised learning will take place within the ICE purpose-built facilities and you will gain practical skills and competency in patient assessment, diagnosis, and treatment.

By covering the whole implant process in depth from treatment planning and implant placement to restoration, this course provides a strong foundation for you to progress your career in Implant Dentistry.
