Course summary

Overview

Dental public health offers you the opportunity to enhance professional, clinical and academic knowledge alongside others from multi-disciplinary backgrounds around the world.

The course can equip you with the understanding and skills to manage the competing demands, resource implications and expectations inherent in providing a 21st century public dental service. It will suit dental professionals or public health professionals who want to grow their knowledge, skills and commitment to develop equitable and fair dental health services. It includes tutors from outside the university environment and with specialist knowledge and experience in oral health protection and the management of dental services locally.

The dental hospital provides outstanding facilities for education and patient care.

Learning and teaching

The course is delivered as a series of modules, containing a mix of lectures, seminars, workshops and practicals, complemented by e-learning. It will teach you to:

  • Critically analyse and debate the theories and issues related to dental public health and effectively communicate these ideas
  • Talk knowledgeably and construct arguments around the social, political and economic factors determining the health of populations
  • Analyse and synthesise evidence based research and its application to the practice of dental public health
  • Develop and evaluate appropriate oral health protection and promotion initiatives at the population level
  • Develop and apply research methodology by conducting a specified programme of research under one-to-one supervision.

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Assessment

You'll be assessed through a combination of in-course assessments, end of module written examinations, and a research dissertation.

Career opportunities

There are dental public health opportunities at all levels of health service planning, government offices and health departments, health agencies and in academia.

Candidates studying our MSc in Dental Public Health may be eligible to continue their studies in the PhD or Doctor of paediatric dentistry programmes. If you’re interested in combining your studies in this way, please speak to Professor Gail Douglas, Associate Professor Jinous Tahmassebi or our admissions team before applying to find out more about your options.
