It prepares you to provide safe and appropriate dental implants as part of your clinical practice.

There’s also the opportunity for continued mentoring and support from the experienced clinicians and educators who deliver the course.

Future careers

Our two-year part-time MSc Clinical Implantology course provides the busy General Dental Practitioner with a route to acquire the skills and knowledge required of a Dentist with Extended Skills.

Upon completion, you may choose to pursue further training and development in either a clinical or academic domain.
