Job prospects depend on specific dentistry qualifications, says Tipton Training founder

The founder of one of the UK’s most reputable dental training academies has said that dentists who obtain qualifications in specific areas of dentistry are likely to have better career opportunities.

Professor Paul Tipton, who created Tipton Training 25 years ago, has seen a growing trend of young dentists bolster their job prospects by increasing their expertise in a particular areas of the profession.

This pattern reflects the approach of Tipton Training’s course offerings and structures. One of those courses, the ‘Restorative’ course, is due to start this October.

“In the recent years we have seen delegates really benefit from focusing on a particular area of dentistry, such as Restorative Dentistry ,” explains Professor Paul Tipton.

“Our Restorative Dentistry course gives dentists the chance to gain more confidence and think about opening their own practice, this will give many the chance to earn a higher income and to update their skills and learn all the latest techniques and advancements.”

He goes on to describe the Restorative course as a step-by-step programme in the form of practical sessions, lectures and demonstrations, ideal for dentists hoping to acquire new skills and build confidence to take on more complex cases.

“It’s also a fantastic course for NHS practitioners who want to increase their private income by updating their knowledge and skillsets in a fast moving area,” adds Professor Paul Tipton.

Successful completion of Tipton Training’s dentistry Restorative course can lead to delegates being accepted into the third year of the MClinDent Restorative and Cosmetic degree at the City of London Dental School.

“It’s our affiliation with the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry (BARD) that allows our delegates to fast-track onto the MClinDent degrees. It’s just another added benefit of undertaking a Tipton Training course ,” adds Professor Paul Tipton.

To gain exemption from the first year of the MClinDent Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry degree, delegates must complete the Tipton Training one year Restorative dentistry course and then pass the BARD certificate exam at the end of their period of study.

In order to bypass the second year of the MClinDent Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry degree, delegates must then complete Tipton Training’s one year phantom head, or cosmetic/aesthetic course. They also need to pass the BARD diploma exams at the end of either course.

The next Tipton Training Restorative course starts on October 15 2014 in Manchester and November 5 2014 in London.
