University of Central Lancashire
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. 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 heads and similar systems. As students move through the course they will progress to working on live patients under close supervision within the UCLan Dental Clinic. Here skills will be developed and assessed through direct observations of procedural skills (DOPS). The key areas of this course will be: Thorough case assessment and record taking; treatment planning and case selection; working under magnification; contemporary techniques for cleaning and shaping canals; irrigation and intracanal medication; 3-dimensional obturation; restoration of the endodontically-treated tooth; non-surgical re-treatments.
