Course summary

Our Periodontology MClinDent combines academic study, clinical skills training and research and offers exceptional, innovative teaching. A wealth of academic expertise will give you a thorough practical education in advanced clinical periodontology, including aesthetics, implants and contemporary surgical methods.


Designed to provide extensive contemporary knowledge and clinical proficiency in periodontology, students train to UK specialist level.

The main themes which you will study are: the scientific basis of periodontal care; the relationship of other dental disciplines to periodontal care; diagnosis and treatment planning for patients with advanced periodontal disease involving multidisciplinary approaches and integrated treatment; the clinical treatment of patients with advanced periodontal disease; techniques for placement and restoration of dental implants in different clinical situations; aesthetics and contemporary surgical methods.

Through hands-on experience, you will acquire advanced competency in the full range of specialist periodontics clinical skills and complementary aspects of restorative dentistry. Students will be exposed to research methods by seminars, extensive reviews of the classical and contemporary literature, critical appraisal of new scientific and clinical developments, and the completion of an in-depth literature review and a research project.

Our students have recently investigated smoking and periodontal health, periodontal microbiology and immunology, clinical trials of periodontal treatment and oral hygiene methods, behavioural factors in periodontology and periodontal relationships to systemic health. You will achieve clinical proficiency in periodontics to a recognised UK specialist level and have the opportunity to sit for the membership examination with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

Course purpose:

Designed to provide extensive contemporary knowledge and clinical proficiency in periodontology, qualified dentists train on this course to UK specialist level. The course has formal recognition for UK specialist training and offers greater depth of knowledge and clinical skills than is required for general practice.
