Course Summary

Course description

This course will develop your critical awareness and knowledge of the theory and fundamental principles of dental public health practice.

It includes a field trip to Brazil (in the second year) to gain practical experience. On this field trip you’ll develop the competencies to work in an interdisciplinary way in public and private health agencies.

This course will give you the skills to critically analyse dental public health problems and develop practical solutions using multidisciplinary and evidence-based approaches that protect and promote population oral health.

You'll also develop the practical skills to act as an independent dental public health practitioner in different international social contexts, using health promotion strategies, social change programmes and effective planning of primary dental care services.

Once you’ve graduated, you’ll have the critical knowledge and practical skills to become a dental public health practitioner, acting independently or as part of a team in different social contexts. You’ll be able to carry out assessments for patients' oral health needs and you'll have the knowledge and skills to reduce oral health inequalities.
