Course detail

Description

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.

We have designed this course to provide theory, support and discussion groups using a dedicated virtual learning environment, so that you can access content wherever you are in the world. 

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 28 days 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 at the 3M Innovation Center 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 through the course.

London face-to-face training for 2019 entry will take place on Thursday 10 January – Sunday 20 January 2019.

Dubai face-to-face training for 2019 entry will take place on Tuesday 19 February – Thursday 28 February 2019.

Teaching

You will be taught mostly online through King’s E-learning and Teaching Service (KEATS) which provides information, interactive questions, assignments, use of bibliographic databases and reading material. Our students participate in online tutorials and discussion groups, interacting with expert tutors and their fellow students. Face-to-face lectures and hands-on training take place in blocks in the first three years. Students are required to undertake and build a reflective log of clinical work in their own general practice.

Clinical support for FRP students is provided through:

  • clinical case discussion for diagnosis and treatment planning
  • comprehensive tutor feedback on clinical work completed in practice
  • case discussion opportunities during the face to face teaching blocks
  • tutor guided online seminars for case discussion and treatment planning.

Please note - While advice regarding patient treatment is given by our experienced clinical team, the clinical responsibility for patient treatment remains with the clinician providing the treatment.

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