Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry

Restorative dentistry forms the backbone of contemporary primary care dentistry. The field of restorative dentistry is constantly evolving as new techniques and materials are developed and the requirement for dentists to keep up-to-date becomes progressively more challenging and potentially rewarding. The ability to predictably and accurately restore a patient’s dentition using an evidence-based approach in restorative dentistry can provide practitioners with a real sense of fulfilment and satisfaction.

We run a range of CPD courses which will allow you to develop crucial restorative skills while continuing to work in practice. From one-day composite courses to our twelve-day Sports Dentistry, you are guaranteed to find a course that immediately impacts what you do in everyday practice. Our lecturers are a range of clinical academics and visiting specialists, many of whom teach on the Restorative Dental Practice MSc, guaranteeing you an excellent educational experience.
