About Dental Hygiene at Trinity College Dublin

The role of the dental hygienist is to improve oral and dental health for individuals and groups, in tandem with a registered dentist. You will use preventative and therapeutic procedures to prevent and/or control periodontal (gum) disease, and will plan, implement and evaluate oral health in promotional and educational activities for groups or individuals.

This two-year course qualifies you for entry to the Dental Council Register of Dental Hygienists. It has academic, project-based and clinical components, and is carried out in the Dental Hospital and health board units in Dublin. Emphasis is placed on small group interactive learning, design and implementation of community and health promotion projects, evidence-based learning, and clinical practice.

Is this the right course for me?

If you have an interest in working in oral health, and particularly preventative oral health, then this course is right for you. You will need to be able to develop good patient care skills, so a caring and understanding personality is an advantage.
