Dental Implantology

This part-time programme is intended for dental practitioners wishing to develop their theoretical knowledge and practical clinical experience of treatment planning, surgical placement, restoration and maintenance of dental implants. The programme has been designed to allow you to gain experience of the use of dental implants in prosthodontic treatment within a supervised environment. Knowledge is developed using distance learning modules and study days. You will also have the opportunity to carry out a research project or literature review and prepare a dissertation. We aim to produce caring, knowledgeable and skilful practitioners who are competent in the provision of the surgical and restorative dental aspects of dental implant treatment, within the limits of the individual clinician.

Course modules

It is a modular programme, which is divided into three sections - certificate, diploma and MSc. All students are admitted to the MSc in the first instance but can choose to exit the programme after completing the certificate or diploma. Year one Five theoretical and practical modules are delivered over a minimum of six study days during year one, as well as through distance-learning material and self-directed study. You will also attend clinical practice placements at the Dental Implant Clinic in Bath. During the clinical practice placements you will diagnose, plan treatment and carry out implant placement under supervision in pre-selected patients who are provided for you. After completing year one, candidates can exit the programme at certificate level or carry on to year two. Year two A further five modules are delivered over a minimum of six study days in year two, through distance-learning material, self-directed work and work-based study. In addition, you will again attend clinical practice placements. After successfully completing years one and two, candidates may exit the programme with a Postgraduate Diploma in Dental Implantology. Year three After a further year, an MSc will be awarded on successful completion of a dissertation.
