Eastman Dental Institute


Conservative Dentistry



Conservative Dentistry encompasses the areas of fixed prosthodontics, operative & implant dentistry, and endodontics.  With the current demographics, showing that people live longer while maintaining more of their teeth, Conservative Dentistry has gained even more importance for all clinicians.

Being able to manage the treatment needs of a patient in a holistic and comprehensive, yet conservative way can be a very rewarding experience, necessitating a combination of science, art, and practical skills.

The MSc Conservative Dentistry at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute is an intensive programme which maintains a good balance between theoretical knowledge and practical application, in addition to a research component. The programme has been running for many years and enjoys great world-wide reputation.

Students gain theoretical and practical experience in the conservative restoration of cases ranging from a single missing tooth to full mouth rehabilitation, utilizing either tooth or implant-supported restorations. This is accomplished through exposure to advanced diagnosis and treatment planning procedures, clinical practice, as well as undertaking the laboratory work for their patients as keys to successful clinical treatment. Students are exposed to both digital and conventional workflows.
