Module 7: Thesis

Surgical, occlusal, surgical-orthodontic therapies: Host-response

* Students will be required to carry out an approved project relating to a problem within the broad field of Clinical Dentistry (Periodontology, Implantology and Oral rehabilitation). The report on this project must include a survey of the relevant literature, and should normally be approximately 10,000 words in length, excluding bibliography, illustrations and appendices.
