Restorative Dental Practice MSc
This MSc enhances the graduate's ability to provide high-quality and comprehensive restorative management for the majority of patients. Students are able to assess, plan and provide quality treatment at an advanced level, forming a sound foundation for the restoration or rehabilitation of a compromised dentition in their own clinical practice.
What will I learn?
The programme aims to: (i) enhance the student's knowledge and clinical applications of restorative dentistry, (ii) develop the skill of critical reading of published literature and (iii) develop skills in research methodology and presentation. In addition a working knowledge of dental materials will be developed in order to enable graduates to relate the use of modern materials to their clinical application.

Most graduates return to enhanced careers in general dental practice. A small number progress to full-time Master's programmes, sometimes with specialist training both at the Eastman and other universities. One recent graduate progressed to a part-time PhD. Others develop a part-time career in teaching, often at the Eastman but also at other universities.
