Regenerative Dentistry MSc

Loading...

Our Regenerative Dentistry MSc offers you academic, practical and research teaching in the very latest developments in regenerative dentistry. Whether you are a dentist or a biological scientist, this course will enable you to learn more about advances in cell and molecule-based dentistry and gain experience in laboratory-based, cutting-edge research in dental stem cell biology.

Key benefits

  • A course from the Centre for Craniofacial & Regenerative Biology - a Centre of Excellence at King's.
  • Internationally renowned academic team.
  • Training in experimental design and grant writing skills.
  • Conduct an original research project.
Riddhi

King’s is world-renowned in the field of research and I chose to pursue the Regenerative Dentistry MSc here because the course structure was so ingeniously designed. Each module was planned to be at par with the current research scenarios in the field of Regenerative Dentistry and the faculty ever so supportive!

Riddhi, Regenerative Dentistry

This course will give you a deep understanding of all aspects of regenerative dentistry, an emerging concept that challenges modern dentistry to step up dental research, translating into new clinical treatments. You will learn about dental stem cell culture, iPS and ES, tooth bioengineering, and the role of stem cells in tooth repair and regeneration. Research and practical elements include a research project, practical demonstrations of stem cell culture alongside critical evaluation of research methods and approaches in dental stem cell biology. Previous research project topics have included: Salivary gland stem cells. Stem cells in the middle ear and their role in homeostasis and repair. Development of replacement teeth: location of stem cell niches in a range of species A chemical genetics screen for regulators of cranial muscle stem cells. Dental pulp stem cells in tooth repair. Exploring the relationship between surface free energy and osseointegration with modifiable ceramic coatings. Embryonic tooth mesenchymal cells and bioengineering. Periodontal tissue regeneration – evaluating different dental stem cell populations. Neural crest stem cells and ossification of the mandible.

Course Aims

  • 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.

Teaching methods - what to expect

We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment.

The following table will give you an idea of what a typical week might look like as you progress through your studies. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work.

The study time and assessment methods detailed are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change.

This course is primarily taught at King’s College London Guy’s Campus Though some of the teaching sessions might be delivered remotely, using online platforms supported by King’s College London
