First choice for health: dentistry

Plymouth University is the largest provider of healthcare related programmes of study in the southwest of England, offering the following undergraduate and postgraduate options:

Exceptional facilities

Our state-of-the-art facilities include a Life Sciences Resource Centre, telematic lecture facilities and a 32 pod Simulated Dental Learning Environment (SDLE).  This SDLE enables our students to learn and experience all aspects of providing dental care in a safe, controlled environment, where ‘phantom heads’ allow you to practice and achieve the highest skill levels before treating patients in the clinical environment.

We also have four NHS training clinics providing a substantial service to over 10,000 NHS patients per year. These include state-of-the-art dental equipment, an on-site decontamination unit and a dental technical laboratory.   

Jonathan Hope - BDS Dental Surgery graduate

Jonathan now works as a general dentist after graduating from the BDS Dental Surgery course.

“I owe everything to do with my career to the dental school. The staff, facilities and the teaching is world class. Even though it is a relatively new school compared to others in the UK, it is starting to show in the league tables just how good it is."
