    Course Summary

    An MSc in Dental Implantology from the University of Salford is delivered in partnership with the ICE Postgraduate Dental Institute and Hospital. This connection allows you to study both the theory and the actual practice of Dental Implantology by caring for actual patients under the close supervision of highly trained ICE mentors.

    You’ll study in the ICE’s state of the art implant hospital, in a purpose built and specially designed learning environment. You’ll also enjoy the benefits of training on the latest, most advanced dental equipment at the ICE National Reference Centre for Digital Dentistry.

    Successful completion of the course can result in either a full MSc degree in Dental Implantology or a Post-graduate Diploma in Dental Implantology. The PgDip route is intended for established dental practitioners who already hold a dental degree that is eligible for GDC registry, and who have 2+ years of dental or hospital experience behind them.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This program is typically delivered as an MSc degree over three years at full time. However, you can also take the program as a Post Graduate Diploma (PgDip) in Dental Implantology with the same module load but without the Dissertation requirement.

    Year 1 Modules Include:

    • Patient Assessment and Treatment Planning – basic principles, treatment plans and risk factors
    • Implant Surgery – radiation protection, clinical photography, and surgical risk awareness

    Year 2 Modules Include:

    • Restorative Treatment and Maintenance – patient management and treatment specific to restorative dental implant therapy
    • Dental Implant Procedures and Complex Cases – risk and complication evaluation and advanced surgical techniques

    Year 3 Modules Include:

    • Dissertation (Dental Implantology). This will involve research based on your first 2 years of study, using qualitative, quantitative or systematic review of data. You will deliver either
      • A systematised review of the literature on a subject or
      • A full research project relating to Dental Implantology.

    Career Possiblities

In addition to going into practice, you may have the option of becoming a mentor at the ICE’s Dental Implantology hospital.  

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 1 year MSc, or a PgDip.
