What will I learn?

Overview

Dental public health offers you the opportunity to enhance professional, clinical and academic knowledge alongside others from multi-disciplinary backgrounds around the world.

The course can equip you with the understanding and skills to manage the competing demands, resource implications and expectations inherent in providing a 21st century public dental service. It will suit dental professionals or public health professionals who want to grow their knowledge, skills and commitment to develop equitable and fair dental health services.
