There are three primary components to your curriculum:
Initially, you will be learning the basics of both dentistry and medicine. You’ll learn the biomedical sciences, including microbiology, pathology, and epidemiology. You’ll also explore the basics of the behavioural sciences at this stage.
Oral and Dental Science:
You will then study those aspects of the biological sciences which affect the mouth in greater detail. You’ll build an understanding of the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of various disorders of the mouth and teeth, as well as the oral and dental effects of more systemic complaints.
Clinical and Technical Dentistry:
Here you will learn (and practice) dental healthcare provision, and come to understand the needs of patients of all ages in a variety of settings.
