Bachelor of Dental Surgery -  year five
During Year Five you will spend four days in the primary dental care clinical environment and become much more confident with clinical situations, healthcare teams and the principal of practice both in the NHS and in private practice. You'll supplement your learning with Case Presentations, which are patient presentations designed to demonstrate that you are capable and confident in diagnosing, treatment planning and carrying out all the procedures necessary to provide optimal oral health care for patients.

You will be provided with information and guidance on your Dental Foundation Year (DF1), your first year of dental practice in the NHS upon graduation, and the school will support you through a series of careers events and guidance on the DF1 application process, interviews and plenaries during your preparation for registration with the General Dental Council.

We are committed to enhancing your managerial and leadership qualities. Senior students will delegate clinical work to junior dental therapy & hygiene students to share their knowledge of treatment planning. Senior students will also be instructed in the contemporary business aspects of running a dental practice within the current NHS structure and work in our dedicated primary care practice.
