Course content

Rooted in applied research and practice, the MSc in Dental Public Health has been designed to enable students to acquire a strong grounding in the theory and application of dental public health.

The course has a formal taught component delivered by unit staff and visiting public health practitioners and researchers.

In addition to delivering core content the taught modules help to improve students’ competencies in critical thinking, argumentation and presentation of complex public health problems. Students also undertake placements in public health bodies in London, giving them exposure to the world of public health decision making.

The Dental Public Health unit is active in applied research in the community and the research module builds on this by giving students the opportunity to develop research planning, delivery and analysis capabilities in these settings.
