About

The structure of this Dental Therapy (Hons) course at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is exciting and innovative in that it is integrated with both the BDS Dentistry and the BSc (Hons) Clinical Dental Technology courses.

Visit the Visit programme website for more information

Overview

There is a great emphasis on clinical experience and initially you will be based in our purpose-built Dental School in Preston developing clinical skills and supporting knowledge, as well as an understanding of how the human body works in health and disease. You will have the opportunity to work with actors to develop your communication skills.

Towards the end of the first year, you will go to one of the four primary care Dental Education Centres (DECs). The DECs are clinical training centres where you’ll treat patients, under supervision, and gain first-hand experience within the communities you are most likely to serve after graduation.

Opportunities

As a graduate of the  Dental Therapy (Hons) course at  University of Central Lancashire (UCLan)  you can register with the General Dental Council as a dental therapist. You may also be eligible to apply for entry into the Graduate BDS course.

You will be eligible to apply for a place on a Dental Therapy Foundation Scheme (DTFT) which are designed to support new or recently qualified Dental Therapists during their transition into the Primary Dental Care workforce.

This course has been provisionally accepted by the General Dental Council Registrar. The GDC is the UK-wide statutory regulator of the dental profession.
