Course summary

Course description

This DClinDent covers all aspects of the oral care of children and adolescents. The course is taught by leading experts in paediatric dentistry, and provides the academic and clinical skills you need to practise. You'll develop an evidence-based and critical approach to this specialism and to general clinical dentistry.

A focus on research skills will give you the confidence to complete future clinical or laboratory-based research programmes. In addition, the curriculum and clinical training provided by this course would allow you to sit the Intercollegiate Membership in Paediatric Dentistry or the Surgical Royal Colleges.

By attending consultant clinics and multidisciplinary clinics, you’ll gain experience of diagnosis and treatment planning. The academic basis of paediatric dentistry is taught by lectures, tutorials and coursework. You’ll also come together with other students to learn about behaviour management, clinical management and dental public health.

Once you've graduated, you’ll be competent in diagnosing oral conditions in children and adolescents, and you'll be able to care for the common oral and dental needs of paediatric patients.

You’ll develop a comprehensive knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages of paediatric restorative materials, as well as knowledge of the common non-pharmacological behaviour management techniques for children and adolescents.

You’ll also know the principles of joint care involving dentoalveolar surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, periodontology, restorative and orthodontics.
