Our course will enable you to develop your skills and knowledge further in restorative dentistry. Building on basic principles, the course provides consultant-led clinical and laboratory practice. You will undertake restorative cases requiring both routine and complex treatments. This involves treatment planning, clinical procedures and technical work.

The course has a substantial clinical component with clinically related sessions accounting for 60%. Specialists and consultants provide clinical teaching and supervision, supported by a comprehensive seminar programme. You can find profiles of our staff on the School of Dental Sciences website.
