Course content

This course teaches the academic and clinical skills you need to practise orthodontics. You’ll develop an evidence-based, critical approach to this specialism and to general clinical dentistry. A focus on research skills will give you the confidence to complete future clinical or laboratory-based research programmes.

The course includes all the features of the first two years of the Curriculum and Specialist Training Programme in Orthodontics approved by the UK General Dental Council.

Once you've graduated, you’ll be able to diagnose and manage most conditions related to orthodontics, and understand the role of orthodontics in developing a comprehensive treatment strategy and plan for an individual patient. You’ll also be able to demonstrate critical appraisal skills when evaluating information in dental literature.

The flexible modular structure means the course meets a wide range of student needs.
