Excellence with a Purpose
Newcastle University is a world-class civic university focused on academic excellence and the impact of our academic work.
The School of Dental Sciences has a long-established reputation for excellence in teaching, scholarship, research and clinical service, and provides a positive and well resourced environment for work and study.
There are a range of postgraduate opportunities at the school taking advantage of the word-class clinical and research facilities working side-by-side. Of particular relevance is the PGDip in Clinical Implant Dentistry, MClinDent in Restorative Dentistry as well as research degrees.
The Centre for Oral Health Research (COHR), established in 2010, is a multidisciplinary, cross-faculty research centre. Our mission is to undertake oral health research with direct relevance to patients or to the health of the public by generating new scientific knowledge to improve oral disease prevention and patient care relevant to societal need.
Our research focuses on understanding molecular and cellular mechanisms of oral and related diseases and on the evaluation of clinical, community and economic strategies to improve oral health. Our Dental Biomaterials research informs advances in restorative and surgical practice. We are committed to translating our internationally recognized scientific research excellence into practice to inform clinical dentistry, dental public health and the wider health care agenda.
The newly built Dental Clinical Research Facility (CRF), is the focus for our clinical research. The CRF facilitates access to patients via the Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the juxtaposition of specialised laboratories enhances our translational research programmes.
