One of the themes for Years Three and Four is to consolidate the learning of medically-related issues for the safe practise of dentistry. You'll be given an opportunity to learn about dentally relevant medical issues in patient-based demonstrations, hospital outpatient clinics, and accident and emergency departments.
Clinical activity will extend to three days each week in Year Four. For senior students, the work will embrace all of the aspects of dental care provision expected of a qualified dentist, and will give you experience in advanced restorative techniques.
You will gain first-hand experience of the role and services provided by specialists in primary and secondary care, spending time in specialist clinics such as restorative dentistry, oral surgery, maxillo-facial surgery and orthodontics.
