Course Introduction

A full-time, one-year (or for specialist registrars (StRs), a part-time, two-year) Master's programme that provides advanced knowledge in various areas of conservative dentistry. The programme provides theoretical and practical experience in the conservative restoration of cases ranging from a single missing tooth to full mouth rehabilitation, utilising either tooth or implant-supported restorations. The MSc in Conservative Dentistry at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute is an intensive programme which maintains a good balance between theoretical knowledge and practical application, in addition to a research component. Students are exposed to advanced diagnosis and treatment planning procedures, and clinical practice. Undertaking the laboratory work for their patients is key to successful clinical treatment. The programme has been running for many years and enjoys a worldwide reputation. The programme is recommended for dental professionals wanting to upgrade and extend their knowledge and level of clinical practice of conservative dentistry in order to prepare for a career in private or mixed practice, the hospital or community services, industrial dental practice, or an academic career in the field. Career trajectories of recent graduates have included academic or hospital-based positions, private practice placements or continuation to Specialty or PhD degree courses.
