Dentistry aims to ensure proper conditions of the oral cavity and deals with diagnosis, prevention and treatment of oral diseases. There are dental specialties such as public health dentistry, pediatric dentistry, oral and maxillofacial radiology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, endodontics, oral and maxillofacial pathology, prosthodontics, general dentistry, periodontics, orthodontics, oral medicine, dental implantation, orofacial pain, temporomandibular disorders, dental aesthetics. Graduates can work in private clinics or hospitals. The main work areas are detection of diseases, aesthetic improvements, public education,
This distance-learning programme is a unique form of dental postgraduate education, designed to be attractive to busy dental practitioners.
Enhance your critical thinking and build on your existing clinical skills. This advanced course will give you a theoretical scientific basis for oral implantology. The course is only run on a part-time basis.
O Médico Dentista formado no ISCSEM tem uma formação de âmbito generalista que, graças ao perfil eminentemente prático do ensino ministrado, principalmente nos últimos anos do curso, está habilitado a exercer a sua profissão com competência e profissionalismo.
The programme offers a fundamental training in the principles of laboratory research methods and the range of techniques used to study the behaviour of oral tissues in health and disease.
Sixty per cent of the programme is dedicated to clinical experience in fixed, removable and implant prosthodontics. Teaching styles include close mentoring, chair-side guidance and small group work that emphasises the importance of the evidence base in literature and creates new research opportunities.
Endodontology balances academic, clinical skills and research. Subjects include the pathology of apical periodontitis and strategies to manage it effectively. Dynamic interaction with other graduate students specialising in prosthodontics, implantology and periodontology. Develops skills in understanding and analysing the research bases for clinical care.
The web-based MDPH programme develops a critical evidence-based approach to planning services and improving oral health at a population level.
We developed a part-time degree programme that allowed practitioners to access Masters level education without having to give up too much of their time away from the practice. This was successfully delivered for six years. Now the University of Edinburgh has invested significant resource in order to help us to develop the course further so that we can deliver the degree online.
This programme is designed for dental graduates who are currently working in either the salaried primary care service or dental practice in the UK. The degree is offered on a part-time basis over three years and will allow you to continue practising while studying for the qualification. The close involvement of NHS clinical staff in delivering the programme ensures that it is relevant to future employment. The clinical scenario-based learning environment also allows the development of key problem-solving skills and team skills including peer evaluation.
The programme is designed to help future leaders/Technicians in the field of Dental Technology, without a degree to build on their qualifications as a conduit to M level education, and to improve their skills and knowledge.
This programme is intended for dental practitioners wishing to develop their theoretical knowledge and practical clinical experience in the treatment planning, surgical placement, restoration and maintenance of dental implants.
Research within Molecular Genetics is very diverse but overall, it aims to understand the biological molecular processes involved in oral and craniofacial development, function and disease. Areas of interest include identification of genes implicated in Mendelian, complex and somatic genetic diseases affecting orofacial structures and function, functional analysis of these genes and proteins they encode, development of molecular diagnostic tests, identification of biomarkers in head and neck cancer and translation of findings into clinical practice.
