Why Oral Medicine?
The spectrum of disease relevant to the specialty of Oral Medicine is ever changing, particularly as a consequence of the increasing lifespan which inevitably leads to individuals being more at risk of acquired immunologically mediated and lifestyle-related disease as well as iatrogenic disorders due to drug therapy. Oral Medicine is more relevant than ever to ensure that patients from around the globe are appropriately managed to enhance their function and quality of life.
Our programme provides postgraduates with didactic teaching by internationally recognised research driven clinical academics and the opportunity to be involved in the management of patients with possibly the widest spectrum of disease relevant to Oral Medicine in Europe, if not the globe. We emphasise putting theory into practice to ensure that postgraduates are well equipped to appropriately manage patients with common and sometimes rare or complex disease.

Our state-of-the-art facilities include two dedicated laboratories for the production of patient devices such as fixed and removable prosthetic devices. There are five clinical skills laboratories containing 90 clinical skills stations equipped with dental manikins allowing trainees to practically and safely refine skills and work in conditions that mimic real-life practice. Two of our suites are also equipped with dental microscopes to aid identification of anatomical imperfections and the quick detection of enamel and dentine fractures.
These units welcome visits from prospective students. Appointments to visit should be made at least two months in advance. Your visit will enable you to meet staff and discuss applications. For an appointment, contact the Departmental Administrator, Nichola Faddoul.
