MSc in Dental Materials Science
Why choose Dental Materials Science at Sheffield?
Dental materials are among the most widely employed medical devices, with almost all adults in the developed world benefiting from their use. The rate of innovation in this field is significant, especially when related health technologies such as tissue engineering are included.
There is a need for clinicians and non-clinicians, along with scientists involved in materials development, to gain skills and expertise to provide them with a deep understanding of the science underpinning the use of materials in dentistry. The School of Clinical Dentistry is home to some of the world’s leading academics in the field, including Professor Paul Hatton, and by working with colleagues led by Dr Ihtesham Rehman in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering it has the full range of expertise necessary to provide a high quality programme.
