Our Fixed & Removable Prosthodontics MClinDent is a comprehensive restorative dentistry course focusing on fixed and removable prosthodontics, designed to advance skills in complex multi-disciplinary dental problems. A key feature of this innovative blended learning programme is the face-to-face teaching block which takes place in the first three years. Students can choose to attend this in either London or Dubai, at state-of-the-art clinical training facilities in both locations. An invaluable way to consolidate learning, and network with peers and teachers, you will benefit from between 9-11 days of continuous intensive training and learning in each of years one to three. Designed for dental practitioners in high-level practice, you will use these skills in your own practice throughout the course. This course is mostly delivered online, so you can study anywhere in the world with minimum disruption to your professional and personal life while benefiting from world-class teaching.

Teertha

What attracted me most to King’s College London was the wide variety of programmes it offers. I opted for distance learning in fixed and removable prosthodontics as I could work and study simultaneously. I found it easy to retain what was taught as I could apply my theoretical knowledge at work on a day-to-day basis.

Teertha, Fixed & Removable Prosthodontics

This course will develop your clinical skills in restorative dentistry, enabling you to treat the variety of patients that visit your practice. We have designed the course to advance your skills, especially in complex multi-disciplinary dental problems such as tooth wear, complex aesthetics and occlusal problems. Our course director, Professor Brian Millar, has helped many dental graduates, both nationally and internationally, to achieve their postgraduate goals, and develop their clinical skills in restorative dentistry, enabling treatment of a wider variety of patients and referring fewer patients externally. *Intensive face-to-face training blocks* Delivered primarily online, the course also provides blocks of intensive teaching and practical training in London or Dubai over the first three years. Our expert tutors will give you guidance on complex dental procedures at specialist teaching centres. When you apply for the course, you will be able to opt to attend either at LonDEC in London or in Dubai. Places at both centres are subject to availability and early application is advised to secure your preference. These blocks are an invaluable way to consolidate learning and progress to the final year. The face-to-face hands-on training for the London pathway takes place as follows: Year 1: 11 consecutive days at King's College London, Waterloo campus - LonDEC training centre. Year 2: Nine consecutive days at King's College London, Waterloo campus - LonDEC training centre. Year 3: Nine consecutive days at King's College London, Waterloo campus - LonDEC training centre. The face-to-face hands-on training for the Dubai pathway takes place as follows: Year 1: Ten consecutive days at the training facility in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Year 2: Nine consecutive days at the training facility in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Year 3: Nine consecutive days at the training facility in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The stated locations are set as long as the student follows a linear path without interruptions in study. A student in either location can defer and rejoin later in the same location. Students can also request to change location. Students are required to have access to adequate clinical facilities and to patients requiring treatment relevant to the subject area. Our programme is taught in a blended format using online content, webinars, lectures, tutorials, question and answers sessions, and the face-to-face block training and includes: - Treatment planning and diagnostics - Prevention at primary, secondary and tertiary levels - Management of missing teeth - Implant placement and restoration including -immediate, delayed, single unit to large units with soft tissue procedures - Dentures of all types and designs, complete and partial including implant retained and precision attachments - Bridges of all types including adhesive designs - Occlusion assessment and treatment, managing lost OVD - Treatment of tooth wear, TMD, bruxism - Endodontics from assessment, access, filing, shaping, obturation, dealing with perforations and broken file retrieval - Digital dentistry and the workflow from clinic to laboratory - Smile design - Aesthetic dentistry - Aesthetic veneers – direct, indirect, chairside, semi-direct - Orthodontics in relation to restorative and aesthetic dentistry - Periodontology – including surgery - Tooth restoration of all cavity types, materials, direct and indirect - Restoring cavities with bulk-fill, monochromatic and layering techniques - MI dentistry and its application to clinical practice - Tooth preparation for all types of indirect restorations and design, margin design and positioning - Restoration of root filled teeth - Restoration of broken down teeth - Patient management - Management of compromised patients - Critical appraisal - Research methods and statistics A key aspect of the Fixed & Removable Prosthodontics MClinDent is that it is a global programme so we teach different approaches from no-prep, to minimal intervention through to destination driven tooth preparation. It is always good to work alongside colleagues from around the world and so we all gain a broader perspective.
