Course Summary

Our course includes diagnosis, treatment planning and delivery of care requiring non-pharmacological behaviour management strategies and for those requiring oral rehabilitation under sedation or general anaesthesia.

Course detail

This is a modern course that aims to facilitate reflective learning, clinical judgments, critical analysis, evidence-based practice and excellent, empathetic clinical care. The didactic course is predominantly seminar based. A tutor will facilitate the seminars but they are student led with approximately 50 seminars over the two years of the course. This means that the students will be expected to present the topic and to critically appraise the literature in the subject area and present this both in writing and verbally. This approach supports the development of inquisitive thinking, deep learning and helps develop judgment. Our course is one of the best established in the UK. You will work hard, and we hope you will have fun here as well and have a memorable life experience. Our aim is to develop you to the forefront of Paediatric Dentistry, as clinicians, teachers and future leaders. The clinical activity is predominantly based at St Thomas’ Hospital, Waterloo, with seminars and clinics at Guy’s Hospital, London Bridge and at King’s College Hospital, located in Denmark Hill.

Teaching and assessment

The Science of Paediatric Dentistry and Clinical Paediatric Dentistry modules will both be assessed through unseen written exams. For your Paediatric Dentistry Clinical module, we will assess you through coursework, clinical and oral exams and essays. Your Paediatric Dentistry Research module will be assessed through a dissertation and oral exams. We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment.

Career prospects

Our aim is to develop you to the forefront of Paediatric Dentistry, as clinicians, teachers and future leaders. The majority of our overseas graduates return to their own country to practice paediatric dentistry. Our home students use this course to progress in their career in the UK.
