Research within dental public health centres around the Oral Health Unit (OHU) - an academically-independent national group set up to develop and deliver high quality applied dental research in primary care. Established within the National Primary Care Research and Development Centre (NPCRDC), the aim of the unit is to deliver research which will inform dental policy, service commissioning and clinical practice.
The MRes programme provides a combination of interactive online learning and project work to help students to develop a critical evidence-based approach to planning services and improving oral health at a population level. The MRes will develop skills for health services research and be especially suitable for those who wish to study for a PhD subsequently but have limited experience of research.
In the majority of cases, an MPhil degree is undertaken by candidates seeking eventual entry onto the PhD. Successful completion of the MPhil year, following the assessment of a transfer report and viva, permit progression to PhD which would then involve 2-3 years of further research before submission for the degree of PhD.

Research within oral and maxillofacial surgery aims to advance knowledge and improve the quality of patient care by drug development, critical evaluation of clinical practice, undertaking randomised controlled trials, and the preparation and dissemination of best evidence for clinicians. The School has a very busy clinical unit with a wide range of outpatient and inpatient oral and maxillofacial surgery undertaken in a high quality dedicated environment.
hD study within the School is a challenging yet rewarding experience. Flexibility is allowed within the parameters of the study to allow the research to evolve and instigate findings not envisaged at the outset of the work. This is complimented by a dedicated PhD training structure, which provides critical skills training, personal development and progression milestones.
