About

The Orthodontics MSc at King's College London provides academic, practical and clinical teaching in modern orthodontics including normal development and growth of the craniofacial region, development of the dentition, orthodontic tooth movement, treatment planning, management of malocclusion, contemporary appliance systems and treatment mechanics.

Overview

The Orthodontics MSc at King's College London is based on the UK General Dental Council Orthodontic curriculum and is delivered through lectures, practical and technical teaching elements, clinical seminars, tutorials, self-directed learning, supervised clinical treatment of patients and attendance on diagnostic and multidisciplinary outpatient clinics.

Academic and clinical teaching is supported by a local virtual learning environment and also through access to the British Orthodontic Society national online learning programme. Assessment is through written, oral and practical examinations, clinical work-based assessments, case presentations, patient logbooks and the submission of a research dissertation.

Students undertake a dedicated research project as part of their course and the Dental Institute at King’s provides an environment enriched with internationally recognized academics to facilitate this. In recent years, students have undertaken projects incorporating many different subject areas including clinical orthodontics, craniofacial biology, dental materials science, clinical psychology and dental public health.
