What you'll study
This new Professional Doctorate programme is for qualified dentists who wish to further their knowledge and clinical skills in the field of Endodontics to specialist level. Endodontics is defined by the General Dental Council (UK) as ‘The cause, prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries of the tooth root, dental pulp, and surrounding tissue.’
Students will acquire advanced knowledge and understanding of the subject and will develop their skills in this dental specialty. This degree integrates clinical competency progression with doctoral level research. The contents of the modules will reflect the Curriculum for Specialist Training in Endodontics of the General Dental Council (UK).
Students will receive clinical training, formal teaching and undertake doctoral level research. Teaching and training is provided by experienced clinical and academic staff. The diverse patient population of east London provides ample opportunities for acquiring clinical knowledge and surgical skills.
You’ll participate in a programme of seminars, lectures and tutorials, starting with an introductory course on the fundamentals of endodontics before going on to review the clinical and scientific basis of the subject and its evidence base.
You’ll then enter supervised clinical, and as appropriate laboratory-based, training; conduct treatment planning and clinical procedures, including for complex cases.
You’ll also complete a research project, where you’ll demonstrate the application of scientific method to a problem related to endodontics. This project will then form the basis of your dissertation. Throughout the duration of the programme, you’ll gain advanced research skills to professional doctorate level and develop critical appraisal skills in relation to the published literature.
In addition to your studies, you’ll also have a chance to interact with other specialists, through an extensive seminar series held within the Institute of Dentistry, the Blizard Institute and other Queen Mary institutions.
