This part-time programme is predominantly online distance learning but potential applicants should note that there is an expected clinical commitment of one day a month hosted by the Edinburgh Dental Institute where they will gain clinical experience in providing conscious sedation for patients.
It is aimed at dental practitioners either in primary or secondary care who wish to introduce this invaluable skill into their practice or formalise their existing training and experience. It is the only university-based programme in dental sedation in Scotland.
A primary dental qualification (such as a Bachelor of Dental Surgery), or its international equivalent, plus a minimum of one years’ experience post-qualification.
All successful applicants will be required to gain Occupational Health clearance prior to commencing any clinical work.
Applications are not accepted from candidates who do not have full registration with the General Dental Council.
You will require a satisfactory criminal record check from Disclosure Scotland to show that you are suitable for this type of course. Contact Disclosure Scotland for details on the type you would need.
