Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy

We offer the BSc (Hons) in Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy for students wishing to train as a dental hygienist and dental therapist. Upon successful completion of the course and registration with the General Dental Council (GDC), you will be qualified to practise as both a dental hygienist and dental therapist. Since July 2002, dental hygienists and dental therapists have been able to work in all sectors of dentistry including community dental services, hospital services, defence medical services, Personal Dental Services (PDS) and general dental practice. This course aims to train Dental Care Professionals (DCP) who can work within a team to provide safe, effective oral care and treatment within the remit of a dental hygienist and dental therapist, doing so in a professional and caring manner. The course also recognises the importance and necessity of lifelong learning and professional development. Graduates will be able to demonstrate the core skills, knowledge and learning outcomes required by the General Dental Council (GDC) and be capable of fulfilling the role of a dental hygienist and dental therapist in many different clinical settings. In addition to being a competent clinician you will also be well prepared to embark on a career in research, regulation or as an educator.
