The Department of Clinical Dental Technology offers the following Bachelor Programs:
Dentistry (Graduate Entry) BDS
Since 2011, every student who has graduated from this course has secured their first job as a dental foundation trainee – impressive, given places are limited and awarded following a national competitive selection process. There are only 29 places on the program so it has a friendly, intimate feel and allows for more discursive, interactive learning. You will be based in our Dental Education Centres for the majority of the final three years – a very different model from a traditional dental school and one that we firmly believe prepares you better for life in practice.
Clinical Dental Technology
This ground breaking course is the first of its kind in the UK. The course gives students the opportunity to train both as a dental technician and a clinical dental technician who can work within dental technology and primary care dentistry. Primary care dentistry is delivered by the whole team in which the role of the clinical dental technician is an increasingly important part. The structure of the course is exciting and innovative in that the dental technology and the clinical training are fully integrated. The course is also integrated with the BDS and dental therapy courses. The clinical dental technology students study alongside the dental and therapy students and share common modules. The school is already renowned for the depth of clinical experience its current students gain during their training.
