Why Conservative Dentistry?

Conservative dentistry encompasses fixed prosthodontics, operative, implant dentistry and endodontics. It will enable dentists to develop up-to-date skills, knowledge and expertise to confidently manage the treatment needs of your patients in a holistic and comprehensive manner.

Why Eastman?

The MSc in Conservative Dentistry 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 a great, world-wide reputation.

Students gain theoretical and practical experience in the management of complex cases 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. Development of each of these skills will enhance your confidence and ability to provide successful clinical treatment. Students are exposed to both digital and conventional workflows.
