Course summary

Our Dentistry course for medical graduates is specifically designed to support a very limited number of qualified doctors wishing to pursue a career in either oral and maxillofacial surgery or oral medicine/pathology. Our course combines the latest thinking in dental education with early clinical experience. You will be taught by internationally-renowned staff and exposed to a rich breadth of skills and knowledge in a diverse clinical environment.

Key benefits

  • Evidence-based and research-led degree course with a high level of clinical experience in all areas.
  • Ranked 1st in the world for Dentistry (QS World University Rankings 2020).
  • State-of-the-art clinical and technical facilities.
  • Cross-year team structure.
  • Largest dental school in the UK graduating over 150 dentists a year.
  • Partnership with the world-famous hospitals: Guy's, King's College and St Thomas'.
  • Taught alongside Dental Therapy & Hygiene students.

The integrated nature of our course means that basic science teaching will relate to clinical practice and clinical teaching will be underpinned by scientific understanding. Our course emphasises whole patient care, which requires consideration of the patients’ total dental and medical needs, rather than just the provision of individual items of treatment.

Employability

A variety of career pathways are open to new dental graduates. The career path for many graduates is general practice, with others aiming to be consultants in the hospital dental service, senior clinical academics in a teaching hospital, or specialist practitioners including in oral and maxillofacial surgery or oral medicine/pathology. Newly-qualified graduates will usually enter dental practice by way of Dental Foundation Training. Foundation Dentists (FDs) work in a Training Practice under supervision and have a day release course of lectures and demonstrations building on the undergraduate degree and gaining instruction in all aspects of practice management.
