Special Care Dentistry at University of Aberdeen programme is aimed at graduated dentists who are looking to further their knowledge and experience of special care dentistry.
The programme is designed to furnish dentists with a basic understanding of special care dentistry and the concept of patient centred care as well as provide guidance to develop critical thinking, care planning and delivery from evidenced sources. Participants will initially gain a background knowledge in research / service planning as well as conditions and disabilities and get experience treating patients with special care needs in a supported environment.
Dentistry is changing and there is a growing expectation of holistic care for patients with special needs. The University of Aberdeen Dental School is well placed to assist dental professionals to build their expertise in providing care for people with special care dental needs with a robust, quality assured and flexible course.
This certificate is ideal for graduated dentists who are looking to further their knowledge and experience of special care dentistry leading to the opportunity to extend their studies to a postgraduate diploma and then MSc in this subject.
A post graduate qualification in special care dentistry could enhance your career prospects and employability. The public dental service will often look for a postgraduate qualification when looking to appoint senior dental officers.
