Restorative Dentistry

Restorative Dentistry deals with the prevention, care and restoration of diseased, injured, or abnormal soft and hard dental tissues to normal function. Restorative Dentistry includes all aspects of Endodontics, Periodontics and Prosthodontics.

The training leading to a CCST in Restorative Dentistry is 5 years and covers curricula embracing the three restorative specialties, together with a number of other subjects more specifically related to the provision of a comprehensive service in Restorative Dentistry in the hospital environment. Training is sixty per cent clinical, twenty five per cent academic and fifteen per cent research. Towards the end of the training period trainees will complete the Intercollegiate Specialty Examination in Restorative Dentistry with success resulting in the award of the FDS (Restorative Dentistry). This specialty training is a Dental Postgraduate deanery approved programme which is accompanied by a National Training Number (NTN) and leads towards a CCST.

Training is designed to equip the trainee with the skills necessary to practice as a Consultant in Restorative Dentistry. These are defined in the curriculum prescribed by the GDC:
