Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is 2nd in the UK for Dentistry as published in the Guardian University Guide for 2018

The latest results in the Guardian league tables, which focus on the quality of teaching, student satisfaction and employability, mean that QMUL is the top university in England, Wales and Northern Ireland for this subject.

QMUL rises one place in the rankings for Dentistry compared to last year, achieving an overall score of 94.6 out of 100, with 95 per cent of students saying they were satisfied with the course and their teaching. This follows our excellent results in the recently published Complete University Guide - which listed QMUL as top in Dentistry.

The Guardian University Guide ranks universities according to: spending per student; the student/staff ratio; graduate career prospects; what grades applicants need to get a place; a value-added score that compares students’ entry qualifications with their final degree results; and how satisfied final-year students are with their courses, based on results from the annual National Student Survey (NSS).

Course Information

Despite the high predictability of treatments with titanium dental implants, long term success and aesthetic outcomes are a continuing challenge in cases of implants placed in areas with significant bone and soft tissue loss. This course will provide evidence-based and up to date treatment solutions for different clinical scenarios where implant placement and restoration is not straightforward. Utilising clinically orientated lectures, workshops, live surgeries, videos and case based discussions, the participant will be provided with the necessary knowledge as well as technical advice/tips starting from initial treatment planning to the delivery of final implant restorations in advanced cases where the lack of hard and soft tissue creates a challenging clinical situation.
