About

The Dentistry BDS course at King's College London combines the very latest thinking in dental education with early clinical experience. You will be taught by internationally-renowned staff and exposed to a rich breadth of skills and knowledge in a diverse clinical environment.

Overview

The Dentistry BDS course at King's College London has three main components. The first consists of subjects common to medicine and dentistry, progressing from biomedical sciences through behavioural sciences, epidemiology, pathology and microbiology to human disease.

 The second includes oral and dental aspects of the biological sciences leading to an understanding of the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of oral and dental diseases and disorders, and the effects of systemic disease on the oral and dental tissues.

 The third covers the clinical and technical aspects of dentistry with the provision of comprehensive oral and dental healthcare for patients of all ages.
