The University of Dundee has announced plans to deliver a part-time orthodontics master's degree programme in Egypt for dentists wishing to specialise.

Working closely with the Arab Society for Continuous Dental Education (ASCDE), lecturers from Dundee will travel to Cairo on a regular basis to teach the MSc programme.

The executive director of ASCDE, Dr Mahmoud Kohail, said, 'This collaboration is an exceptional opportunity to continue ASCDE's commitment to resetting the standards of postgraduate dental education and renovating dentistry in Egypt.'

Participating dentists will also undertake orthodontics skill training at ASCDE's clinical facilities where patients receive free treatment.
