Orthodontics MSc


Our Orthodontic MSc course provides academic, practical and clinical teaching in contemporary orthodontics including normal development and growth of the craniofacial region, development of the dentition, interceptive treatment, orthodontic tooth movement, treatment planning, management of malocclusion, the use of contemporary appliance systems and treatment mechanics.UK candidates are required to apply for orthodontic training posts through Health Education England via the national recruitment process. Full details are published on the London Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education website as soon as they become available. Successful UK applicants within national recruitment are then required to apply for the Orthodontics MSc, based at King's College London, for the academic component, following the allocation of a training post. Once training posts are allocated, candidates will be contacted by King's Admissions and the application portal will be re-opened for them to apply.

Key benefits

  • Exposure to a wide variety of orthodontic appliances and techniques
  • Rotations to peripheral hospital orthodontic departments in SE England
  • Dedicated postgraduate dental centre at Guy's Hospital
  • Internationally competitive research opportunities

King's was the obvious choice for postgraduate orthodontics. The state-of-the-art facilities in Guys’ Hospital are incredible to work in, giving me access to new tech and research materials. And studying under the worlds' leading clinical & research fellows, some of whom literally wrote the book on modern orthodontics, has been the most rewarding experience so far.
