University of Central Lancashire

Clinical Periodontology

Our programme provides the busy general dental practitioner with a part-time educational route to acquire the skills and knowledge required of a dentist with special interest (DwiSI). This programme focuses on contemporary practice, teaching evidence-based principles and systems to ensure an optimal outcome for the patient and practitioner. During the course students will be expected to attend up to 15 study/assessment days per year. Work in the early part of the course will comprise plenary lectures and practical sessions in our state-of-the-art phantom head facility and work on pig's head and similar systems. As students move through the course they will progress to working on live patients under close supervision in the UCLan Dental Clinic. Here skills will be developed and assessed through direct observations of procedural skills (DOPS).
