Course summary

This part-time programme is predominantly online distance learning, but there is currently an expected clinical commitment of one day a month hosted by the Edinburgh Dental Institute where you will gain clinical experience in providing conscious sedation for patients.

Who this programme is for

It is aimed at dental practitioners either in primary or secondary care who wish to introduce this invaluable skill into their practice or formalise their existing training and experience.

Career opportunities

Completion of this programme will allow a dental practitioner to fulfil the training requirements as set out by the Intercollegiate Advisory Committee in Dental Sedation (IACSD) and therefore provide independent, unsupervised practice in conscious sedation.

Online learning

The online component is based on a virtual learning environment or VLE and is fully interactive, easy to navigate and allows you to complete the academic aspect of the course from the comfort of your own home or workplace.

Not only do our students have access to the University’s excellent resources such as the library and get to know each other on their clinical attachment days, but they have the opportunity to build a supportive online community.
