On this course you'll learn all about the structure, function and maintenance of oral and dental tissues. You'll learn about the basic and applied sciences underpinning clinical dentistry, including anatomy, oral microbiology, cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, tissue engineering, medical sociology and dental materials. This research-led course puts you at the forefront of developments in healthcare.
You'll work on innovative research projects, such as the molecular and cellular bases of regeneration and tissue repair. We'll help you to develop the technical skills needed by employers.
This degree includes an opportunity to go on a research-informed placement where you'll learn how science can provide commercial healthcare solutions. You'll also have the chance to work with the local community to promote the public understanding of oral health.
You'll study seven core modules across three years. The modules will progressively develop your ability to learn independently. Although all modules are compulsory, you can choose to focus on the subjects that interest you most during Years 2 and 3.
This School of Clinical Dentistry course includes lectures, seminars, online learning, lab classes and human dissection. In addition to the placement, you'll carry out an individual project and a group project.
You can't transfer from the B750 BSc Bio-dental Science and Technology course to the A200 Bachelor of Dental Surgery course.
If you're interested in the Bachelor of Dental Surgery you would need to apply for this separately and meet the usual requirements. If you apply for the Bachelor of Dental Surgery as a graduate of the BSc, please check the entry requirements.
