MSc in Orthodontics
We are pleased to announce the launch of Peninsula Dental School, The University of Plymouth’s MSc in Orthodontics. This new programme includes both academic and clinical teaching of orthodontic case assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment, using a case-based learning approach. Sessions include clinical skills and observations in specialist orthodontic practice. This proven approach will enable students to develop their confidence and clinical expertise as well as augmenting their theoretical knowledge, understanding and application of orthodontics to their patients.
This Masters qualification is delivered in modular form, created to equip students with both specific theoretical and practical clinical understanding and expertise in the field of Orthodontics. The course allows General Dental Practitioners to pursue a flexible training pathway over a three year timeframe. It is designed for dentists who wish to develop their skills in Orthodontics and/or who wish to develop a special interest in Orthodontics. The University of Plymouth MSc continually adapts to changes in postgraduate training, evolving to fulfil requirements for career pathway developments in orthodontics.
The course has been designed and developed to provide you with tuition from leading specialists and examiners in the field of Orthodontics, together with advanced, up-to-date clinical training, so that you are able to develop a proficiency in Orthodontics informed by evidence-based dentistry. It also aims to enhance professional development, helping you to think creatively and independently, to solve problems, to exercise judgment, and to communicate clearly and effectively with patients and colleagues.
The programme has been researched as part of a PhD study, thus being evidence-based not only in orthodontic treatment rationales, but also in terms of the pedagogy of adult education. It offers a complete introduction to whole patient care, including the processes of examination, case assessment, investigations, diagnosis, treatment planning and the management of patients with a wide-range of malocclusions.Get in touch
