Course Description

Clinical Dentistry (P.Grad.Dip.)



This course is designed to fill the need, identified by the Dental Council, for a continuing education programme forthe Dental Profession. The course aims to combine a ‘hands-on’ approach with theory. Students have a choice of nine modules, of which they must successfully complete six in order to obtain their Postgraduate Diploma. Students have to provide their own nursing care (where 1:1 assistance is required) and patients on some modules.

The course aims to give insight into the theory and scientific rationale of various aspects of dental practice, develop clinical ability in the relevant areas, and develop confidence in the use of new skills.

The modules offered are: adhesive dentistry, removable prosthodontics, fixed prosthodontics, periodontal therapy, endodontics, oral medicine, orthodontics, dento-alveolar surgery and paediatric dentistry. In addition a core course covering cross-control of infection, medical emergencies in dental practice, ethics, malpractice and risk management and other issues will be taken by all participants. The course is assessed by a combination of objective structured clinical examinations, completion of clinical competency and continuous assessment.
