Course content

This new course provides extensive teaching of contemporary endodontics for general dental practitioners and hospital dental staff.

This Clinical Endodontics course is designed to strengthen knowledge and understanding in the field of endodontology, improve clinical skills in all aspects of endodontic diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical treatment, and hopefully lead to increased job satisfaction.

Work-based learning is an exciting element of this course. These clinical components are undertaken with the Department of Restorative Dentistry, Morriston Hospital, and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board. To encourage an exchange of ideas and experience, students will engage with other dental practitioners such as general dental practitioners, specialist practitioners, hospital staff and consultants. It is also envisaged that this course can be used as a major part of your continuing professional development (CPD). Please refer to the General Dental Council (GDC) for CPD regulations.

Delivered online, this award has been developed through collaboration between the University of South Wales and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, and is the only course of its type in Wales.

Year one

Endodontic Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
Endodontic Access, Canal Shaping, Cleaning and Obturation

There will be an emphasis on lecture and seminar-driven teaching before progressing to the hands-on, clinical components. Assessment will be written assessments, case reports and viva voce examinations, as well as clinical skills testing.

The course is designed around your needs, so you can choose a rate of study that best fits your development needs or career ambitions. For example, may choose to exit the award after the first year with a Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) and return to achieve the Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) at a later date. The maximum timeframe for completion of the Diploma is five years.
