Regenerative dentistry is for both dentists and biological scientists who desire to learn more about the latest advances in cell and molecule-based dentistry and also gain experience in carrying out laboratory-based, cutting-edge research in dental stem cell biology.
Written exam, practical tests and written reports, seminar presentation.
Module 1: Lectures in Regenerative Dentistry. Written exam.
All modules are compulsory
Students use this programme for career development
The regenerative dentistry program at King’s College London is an intensive and well-focused program with multiple modules. We had one module for developing laboratory skills. We had lectures in experimental design in craniofacial biology, which helped me a lot to understand the different approaches in designing a proper experiment.
I chose to do the MSc in Regenerative Dentistry because it is a unique course in the whole world. Professor Paul Sharpe nailed the program filling it with the most current subjects in Regenerative Dentistry and provided us with all the attention and material we needed to understand the content of the course.
KCL is a great university for research so it was always somewhere I wanted to consider for my MSc. I am convinced that this degree programme will give me a set of research skills and a way of thinking that will enable me to apply myself in a wide range of career opportunities including PhD anywhere in the world.
