MSc Dental Technology

School of Clinical Dentistry, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health

Dental professionals from all over the world come to Sheffield for postgraduate courses that enhance their careers.

The course is well organised, all sessions are interactive and very informative. I love lab sessions where I can improve my clinical skills by practising on extracted teeth and a model jaw. The supervisors are very helpful and their feedback helps me increase my knowledge and improve my skills.
