A degree in Oral Health Sciences allows you to register as a dental hygienist and dental therapist with the General Dental Council (GDC). You’ll become a skilled professional who is part of the dental team. Dental therapists care for oral health by preventing disease, promoting healthy lifestyles and treating gum disease and dental decay.
You will learn the fundamentals of the sciences that support dentistry and how they apply to clinical situations. You’ll be practising skills in a simulated clinical environment and by the end of the first semester you will be ready to meet your first patients. You will be able to communicate professionally with them, understand their health issues and treat gum disease.
You will also have the opportunity to work on Thiel cadavers. The Thiel method of embalming preserves cadavers with life-like flexibility and tissue quality.
