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:
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.
Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written/practical examinations. Forms of assessment may typically include written and oral exams, reports, dissertations and coursework.
Coursework, reports and dissertations contribute approximately 56%, written exams approximately 34% and oral (presentations) examinations approximately 10% to your final mark.
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.

For me, already holding a PhD, the Regenerative Dentistry MSc represented the missing thing. Its unique topic convinced me to apply and it was the best year in my scientific life. The great mix between lectures and lab work was doubled by the excellent libraries at King’s.
This course offered me an approach to link clinical dentistry and experimental molecular science. Taught by world experts, it gave me deep understanding of modern molecular and stem cell biology, and how to use this knowledge in research. Not only have I learned state-of-the-art laboratory techniques, but also encountered an interdisciplinary environment that has allowed me to explore new, exciting leads outside the centre of traditional dentistry. I'm now working in clinical practice with the prospect of further studies at a doctoral level or in a clinical specialty.
This unique master's course deals with the latest developments in both regenerative dentistry and medicine, including dental stem cells culture, iPS and ES cells, tooth bioengineering, cell signalling, and many other aspects regarding the craniofacial region and stem cell biology. Now, I'm doing my PhD at King's, under the supervision of Dr. Isabelle Miletich who has particular expertise in salivary gland development and regeneration.
The programme helped me explore different aspects of craniofacial development and stem cell biology. It dramatically enhanced my lab and research skills, with state-of-the-art resources and facilities, and a cooperative and passionate environment. I’ve been able to land opportunities to work in top research centres back home, which made me more confident to embark on my PhD.
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!
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.
