Programme overview

The postgraduate programme in periodontology is designed to provide practitioners with in-depth evidence-based knowledge and technical skills that can be applied in their practice whilst pursuing a postgraduate education degree.

The structure of the programme allows practitioners to experience the surgical techniques in periodontology. Students will work closely together with the periodontal team to develop understanding, teamwork skills and confidence in treatment planning for advanced periodontal cases and in developing their own case portfolio. Students will be taught by our internationally recognised academic staff and consultants as well as visiting experts in the field.
