BSc Dental Therapy and Hygiene  -  Year 2
In Year 2 you build on your foundations with common dental problems, as well as disease mechanisms being considered in much greater depth. Year 2 will see you develop your clinical skills further and applying what you have learnt to the realities of primary care dental practice.
You’ll develop your communication skills, further your knowledge in paediatric dentistry and attend a clinical session dedicated to the treatment of children. 

You’ll  also be expected to undertake additional clinic skills training in basic life support in the Clinical Skills Resource Centre.

In a typical week you may be expected to attend:

  • Six plenaries can be known as lectures, where you’ll meet experts in various fields
  • Two days clinical work treating primary care patients
  • Workshops and simulated dental experience
  • Interactive life sciences practical sessions studying biomedical sciences
As you progress through the programme your clinical activity will increase and you’ll gain extensive exposure to patients who will display a variety of oral diseases, as well as systemic conditions. This will underpin the development of your clinical skills and allow you to think and perform safely in the clinical environment.
