Module 2 – Clinical Restorative Dental Care 1 60 (core) This Module will provide you with opportunities to discuss and embed principles and seek commonality between the preparatory aspect of restorative dental care and the supportive phase. It will affirm that the sub-disciplines that comprise restorative dental care (prosthodontics, operative dentistry and endodontics) cannot be carried out separately, but are linked. In turn these are coupled with leadership and management, communication skills and professionalism. All these skills should be discharged under the umbrella of societal needs.
Module 3 – Clinical Restorative Dental Care 2 50 (core) At the completion of this Module, those who have met the standards will have the knowledgeability and skills to practise a substantial component of the reconstructive phase of restorative dental care including laboratory-fabricated restorations and prosthetic rehabilitation.

You will build on some of the skills explored in in the early modules such that you will have a sound appreciation, 1) that effective dental care is underpinned by an evidence-based approach, 2) of the tools required to carry out a systematic review, 3) apply some of these in carrying out a systematic/narrative review. This module will form a foundation for life-long learning
Module 8 – Oro-facial aesthetics and cosmesis 10 (core) An appreciation of some of the external and person-centred characteristics that influence oral-facial beauty/attractiveness.
