About Dental Materials Science at University of Sheffield

This non-clinical course is run jointly with the Faculty of Engineering. It gives you a comprehensive education in basic materials science and the use of materials in dentistry and surgery. 

You'll be taught by some of the leading academics in the fields of bio and dental materials science, tissue engineering, materials characterisation and biomedical engineering. You'll also learn the principles of research and different techniques for evaluating dental materials and related health technologies.

There is a need for clinicians and non-clinicians to gain skills and expertise in these fields so they have a deep understanding of the science underpinning the use of materials in dentistry.

You'll have the opportunity to enhance your academic and scientific skills, including building on your knowledge of basic sciences to increase your understanding of the interaction between the biological environment and materials used in dentistry.

You'll also be introduced to the principles of scientific research methodology and explore how dental materials science and related technologies are used to repair, replace or help regenerate tissues in dentistry.

Once you've graduated, you'll be able to recognise the clinical, technical and scientific rationale for the use of materials and related technologies in dentistry, and how scientific principles can be applied to the study and development of dental materials. You'll also understand how the use of materials and related technologies in dentistry are affected by medical, social, legal, and demographic factors.
