Doctor of Dental Surgery

The Doctor of Dental Surgery is a research based qualification that can be taken either full time or part time. The programme is aimed at those in the dental profession who wish to develop high level research skills by pursuing original research in the field of study, relating particular research to the general body of knowledge in the field, and presenting the results of the researches in a critical and scholarly way. Edinburgh Dental Institute (EDI) works in partnership with two major organisations to deliver high quality education, research and patient care. The activities of EDI are as a result of strong cooperation and collaboration between the University of Edinburgh, NHS Lothian, NHS Education for Scotland and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
