The aim of this course is to enable students to develop their current skills set, through teaching and their own research, in order to work at an advanced level in Clinical Dentistry.


The course will expand students’ knowledge and skills in the management of patients and enable students to critically evaluate and participate in research in this area. The course uses a range of assessments, which give students the opportunity to produce assessed work which is highly relevant to the clinical environment and which develops independent life-long learning skills.

Graduates holding a P.Grad.Dip. in Clinical Dentistry or other equivalent dental awards from Trinity or other institutions in Ireland or the UK may apply to complete a further 30ECTS for the award of M.Sc. in Clinical Dentistry over one year.
