About Restorative Dentistry MClinDent at Newcastle University

Our course will enable you to develop advanced skills and knowledge in restorative dentistry. Building on basic principles, the course provides consultant-led clinical and laboratory practice. You will undertake restorative cases requiring both routine and complex treatments. This involves treatment planning, clinical procedures and technical work.

The course has a substantial clinical component with clinically related sessions accounting for 60%. Specialists and consultants provide clinical teaching and supervision, supported by a comprehensive seminar programme. You can find profiles of our staff on the School of Dental Sciences website.

We provide an evidence base for restorative dentistry and opportunities for applied research. The research element of the course contributes to 40% of the final mark. You will undertake a research project that contributes to the Centre of Oral Health Research (COHR) research profile. You will also have the opportunity to work with internationally renowned researchers in the COHR.

Our graduates have progressed to careers in:

  • enhanced dental practice
