Course Summary

This degree comprises integrated compulsory scientific, technical and clinical teaching units. Year one provides a scientific grounding and introduces personal and professional development. Clinical skills training and patient contact occur in year two. In year three you can choose to intercalate in a science subject to obtain an Honours BA or BSc. At the end of year four you will undertake dental-related research, an audit, or supervised clinical activity in the UK or abroad. Certain health conditions may be incompatible with careers in dentistry. Before starting your degree you will need to complete a health assessment questionnaire and pre-course screening for blood-borne viruses. These blood tests are to identify the few whose health status may place them and/or future patients at risk. Practising dentistry demands the highest standards of professional and personal conduct. In accordance with General Dental Council guidelines, all dental students must complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and register with the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
