Our MissionTo be a responsible dental training organisation delivering a high quality training and patient experience that leads to the professional development of dentists.
About UsProfessor Paul Tipton and his well respected, hand-picked team have been delivering Post Graduate Training Courses for over 29 Years. Within this time, we have successfully trained over 3,500 delegates.
Dentistry is an ever-changing profession. With this in mind, our courses are always developing to ensure we are delivering a course with the latest scientific research and clinical skills. In addition to Professor Tipton, our faculty includes several Specialists and Lecturers teaching with reputable universities. They work alongside a team of experienced Dentists who have worked with Professor Tipton or are experienced Tipton Training alumni. Our knowledgeable and well respected faculty ensure that you receive the most advanced and up to date education available.
In 2016 we took the decision to take enhance our current portfolio and take our courses to the next level. In the second half of 2017 we put in our application for approval and credit rating. We expect our courses to be credit rated and listed on the Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework (SCQF) by December 2017 and the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) which is the OfQual regulated framework sometime in 2018. A level 7 course is the equivalent of a Master’s level post graduate qualification in the British Framework and is a recognised assurance of quality. The Level 7 status can only be awarded to a course after the curriculum, method of delivery and assessment is verified by a recognised body.
We have developed a new portfolio of Post Graduate Certificates & Diplomas. Our inherent goal is that everything taught on a Tipton Training Course can be put into practice the very next day. Our past delegates have taken the necessary steps to differentiate themselves from their peers. Why don’t you do the same?
Our Training PhilosophyThe Tipton Training training philosophy is based on its belief that dentistry is a hands-on profession letting a dentist use both scientific knowledge and hands-on clinical skills to deliver quality treatment. A dentist is challenged on these fronts and consequently needs to be comfortable using their knowledge and clinical skills while treating patients. We want to support dentists in successfully overcoming this challenge.
At Tipton Training, we follow the Learn-Practice-Reflect-Perform philosophy. Delegates Learn through face-to-face teaching, various scientific papers and other reading materials provided on the course. Assessments are carefully crafted to let delegates Practice and Reflect on their education. It is our belief that by Learning, Practicing and then Reflecting on their Learning and Practical work delegates will be in the best position to Perform when it comes to patient treatment.
Prof Paul Tipton and his team are excellent teachers and I found them to be very inspiring, confident and experienced clinicians. We were taught all the types of prosthetic restorations which were carefully supervised and corrected if necessary. We covered a good range of cases and there were never-ending opportunities to learn more. Great location, excellent dental materials to work with and a very helpful team. Overall a great course, thank you very much.

Empowering DentistsHaving trained over 3,500 dentists across three decades, we are the first to recognise how great education can Empower Dentists. Regardless of your goals and ambitions, the value that a Tipton Training Course can provide, Empowers Dentists to follow a unique path. Some of our valued alumni have gone on to set up their own private practice, some have gone on to gain further Post-Graduate Qualifications, but all have one thing in common and that is a significant improvement in skills and confidence that can be applied in practice the very next day.
It has opened my eyes to many aspects of Dentistry I didn’t consider as important beforehand. I feel it’s just the beginning of my journey. I now ask myself more questions. The areas that were not very clear at the beginning of the course started to fall in place like missing pieces of the puzzle. My main thought now is that I want to do the course again. I am very grateful and thankful to everyone who made this course happen and work.
