Model of jaw for use by dental students

Year 1 covers aspects of normal structure, function and behaviour and the scientific basis of these. It also focuses on dental health, prevention of dental disease and the underlying principles of personal and professional development. You will be working in the Simulated Dental Learning Environment (SDLE) in week one and on clinic treating patients by term three.

You will gain insight into the importance of team working in dentistry as you integrate with other members of the team and work in small study groups. By the end of Year One you will be familiar and comfortable with the clinical and simulated dental environments.
