Course content

Dundee's MDPH course can lead to a practical or academic career supporting the development of Dental Public Health and reducing dental health inequality in the world of Community Dentistry.

This course is unique to Scotland, and is a joint venture between the internationally renowned Dental Health Services Research Unit (DHSRU) at the School of Dentistry and the School of Medicine, University of Dundee.

Using the World Health Organisation (WHO) Oral Health Programme strapline 'think global act local', the course will provide you with the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills to develop a career in government-based and national Dental Public Health programmes.

This Community Dentistry course also focuses on evidence-based dentistry, with input from Derek Richards, Director for the Centre of Evidence-Based Dentistry, and Professor Jan Clarkson, Coordinating Editor of the Cochrane Oral Health Group.
