Course content

Develop your skills and expertise to a specialist level. Conforming to the GDC’s Specialist Curricula, the courses cover the theoretical basis and practical skills needed to manage and treat endodontics, periodontics or prosthodontics and general restorative interdisciplinary cases.

You’ll use various complementary learning modalities, interacting with colleagues and allied specialties in restorative dentistry to jointly manage patient care. Over the three years, you’ll learn sophisticated research methods and apply them in a scientific research investigation, with specific outcomes for each year of study.

The DClinDent is suited to all dentists that wish to pursue specialist training in one of the restorative monospecialties and wish to prepare for the Specialty Membership Examinations in Endodontics, Periodontology and Prosthodontics of The Faculty of Dental Surgery of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd).

Final year students (Year 3) can choose to sit a conjoint examination where successful candidates will be awarded the degree of DClinDent and Specialty Membership (RCSEd) in one of the designated specialisms of restorative dentistry: Endodontics, Periodontics or Prosthodontics
