Course summary

Dental hygienists/therapists play an increasingly important role in the delivery of primary care dentistry. The structure of this course is exciting and innovative in that it is fully integrated with the BDS Dentistry course. Both dental hygiene/dental therapy students and BDS students will learn their clinical and professional skills together and will take the same modules for 60% of the course. The majority of the first year of the course will be carried out in the School of Dentistry, Allen Building, Preston campus and in Years 2 and 3 the students will gain clinical experience with the BDS students at one of the four Dental Education Centres (DEC's).On completion of the course, graduates will be eligible to apply for registration with the General Dental Council and work in dentistry as a dental care professional. Graduates of this course who gain a 2.1 degree may be eligible to apply for entry to the BDS programme and the content of their previous degree would enable them to take the accelerated entry route.
