MSc Dento-Alveolar Surgery

The MSc Specialist Practice of Dento-Alveolar Surgery seeks to increase the general dentists’ skills in minor oral surgery and develop competencies.
Many straightforward cases requiring minor oral surgery treatment are referred for specialist treatment yet they could and should easily be within the scope of the general practitioner.

Apart from teaching basic surgical sciences the programme will teach advanced bone augmentation procedures essential for implant site enhancement.

This programme is ideal for general practitioners who want to hone their surgical skills to expand their practice and increase the scope of their implant placement.
