About this course

Our Orthodontics MSc programme welcomes international and home students, we have places for six home students and two international students who work closely together in clinics and the academic environment.

The Orthodontics MSc has a September intake every three years. The next intake for this course is in 2022.

The course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to complement your clinical training and we aim to provide:

knowledge to support the clinical treatment of orthodontic cases, including simple and complex cases appropriate for specialist practitioner level
an evidence base for orthodontics and the skills required to appraise the evidence base
applied research within orthodontics

The course provides theoretical teaching to support the development of an orthodontic specialist. We provide a comprehensive seminar programme incorporating the theoretical and diagnostic elements of specialist knowledge, and the opportunity to carry out a research project allied to our research strategy. Our course includes:

normal and abnormal development of the dentition
tooth movement and facial orthopaedics
orthodontic materials and biomechanics
airway, craniofacial development and malocclusion
diagnostic procedures
biological sciences relevant to orthodontics
an overview of multidisciplinary orthodontics

The aim of the research component is to expose you to the principles and practicalities of performing dental research. Projects range from laboratory studies, analysis of new data sets, systematic reviews and short term clinical studies.

Research projects are identified and allocated during the first term. By the end of the first year you will have completed your first draft of your literature review and have established your methodology. More time is available for research during the second and third years with the dissertation handed in at the end of January of the third year. You will be encouraged to publish your research work in scientific journals.

The course, based in our School of Dental Sciences, has been running for two decades and we have a good national reputation. Our graduates have gone on to work in prestigious practices, senior academic posts and in hospital consultant positions.
