Periodontics

The DClinDent is suited to all dentists that wish to pursue specialist training in one of the restorative monospecialties and wish to prepare for the specialty membership examinations in endodontics, periodontology and prosthodontics of The Faculty of Dental Surgery of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd). Candidates will have the opportunity to acquire knowledge and critical awareness of the issues that determine successful outcomes, informed by the forefront of knowledge in restorative dentistry; in accordance with the requirements of the UK's GDC specialist curricula. We will foster your ability for decision-making in complex and unpredictable situations, resulting in sound judgements and allowing you to plan and implement tasks at a professional level. You will learn how to communicate clearly and professionally to specialist and non-specialist audiences. Distinct and carefully mapped opportunities to work and interact with colleagues in the other two restorative disciplines and other hospital trainees will give doctorate students the opportunity to develop their skills in a multi-disciplinary environment. Final year students (Year 3) can choose to sit a conjoint examination where successful candidates will be awarded the degree of DClinDent and specialty membership (RCSEd) in periodontics. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
