Clinical Practice Experience
As you progress through your degree programme your clinical exposure will increase. Extensive exposure to patients, who will display a variety of oral diseases, as well as systemic conditions, will underpin the development of your clinical skills. This experience will develop your ability to think and perform like an expert in the clinical environment.   

You will:
  • Experience oral healthcare as it is delivered in general practice
  • Learn from patients about the breadth of diseases and health problems in a community, and the effect of social, and environmental factors on oral disease
  • Understand through experience the wide-ranging impact and importance of the dental team
  • Learn alongside, and from, experts in the healthcare community including doctors, nurses, social workers, hygienists, therapists, technicians, and other healthcare professionals.
