ICE is pleased to announce the introduction of the new MSc / PGDip in Restorative Dentistry course. This MSc/PGDip in Restorative Dentistry has been developed and accredited in partnership with the University of Salford and is subject to validation for September 2019.

Restorative Dentistry helps form the backbone of contemporary primary care dentistry. The restorative Dentistry field is constantly evolving as dentists discover new technology, materials and techniques and the requirement for dentists within the field to keep up-to-date with the latest changes becomes progressively more challenging and more rewarding.

ICE is a purpose-built Postgraduate Dental Institute & Hospital offering a balance of state-of-the-art teaching and clinical facilities that provides a detailed and interactive learning experience. Comprising of a range of modern clinical training suites, a fully-equipped operating theatre, and a dental laboratory, ICE is committed to providing a leading environment for clinicians to study digital and implant dentistry. By investing in the latest high-tech equipment and digital workflow solutions, it enables ICE to provide all students with the necessary equipment to carry out their learning.

ICE is a National Reference Centre for Digital Dentistry incollaboration with Henry Schein. This unique partnership allows both partners to showcase the latest digital workflow solutions that are available, whilst providing expert quality implant training and education opportunities. The partnership allows for both parties to provide clinicians with the latest innovations and skills in implant dentistry and of the digital workflow, allowing to improve the level of care and treatments that patients receive. As a National Reference Centre, ICE is perfectly positioned to provide the teaching and the research that is required today to help dental professionals to understand the technology and jargon that is associated with digital dentistry.

The aim of the Restorative Dentistry programme is to take the qualified dentist to an advanced level in their practice, enabling them to manage complex diseases of the teeth. Clinicians on the course will be introduced to high-end techniques to ensure rehabilitation of dentition meets functional and aesthetic requirements. The program content of the Restorative Dentistry is based on the Restorative Dental Treatment that will include, Endodontics, Prosthodontics, and Periodontics.

The PGDip / MSc in Restorative Dentistry course seeks to equip dental clinicians with the necessary and core skills and competency in the assessment management, and treatment of patients who have a disease of the oral cavity, teeth or their supporting structures, through a combination of clinical support and academic teaching. This Restorative Dentistry course will enable students to develop advanced skills and knowledge in restorative dentistry. By building on the basic principles, the PGCert / MSc provides consultant-led clinical and in-house laboratory practice.

The MSc is a 3-year part-time course, with the opportunity to step off with a Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) after 2 years. Across the first two years, students will study 4 modules, with the third year comprising of a dissertation.

  • Fundamentals of Restorative Dentistry

This module will focus on the theoretical and practical aspects relating to the assessment, diagnosis, and management of dental diseases.

  • Applied Restorative Dentistry

This module aims to develop the participant’s skills in the complex (class 4 restorations), denture design, posterior restorations and management strategies for patients with dentine hypersensitivity.

  • Clinical Restorative Dentistry

This module will enable students to critically evaluate the evidence concerning the restoration of root treated teeth and to conservatively restore missing teeth.

  • Advanced Restorative Dentistry

This module aims to enable students to critically discuss the management options for tooth surface loss, understand the principle of occlusion and to evaluate the management of failing complex dentition and synthesise the principles of implant dentistry.

The course aims to provide participants with the core knowledge to develop their core knowledge, skills and clinical competencies to allow the assessment, management and treatment of patients who suffer with diseases of the oral cavity, the knowledge and critical awareness of the current issues in the field of dentistry, the ability to develop a comprehensive understanding of the principles of research inquiry and to develop, evaluate and demonstrate the evidence-based practice.

Students will benefit from studying at a National Reference Centre for Digital Dentistry and purpose-built implant hospital, where they will experience the whole digital workflow and benefit from state of the art facilities at ICE including an in-house dental laboratory whilst having access to cutting edge digital dentistry equipment.
