About

The internationally renowned  Dental Public Health programme offered at the University College London (UCL) offers a challenging and innovative programme of study. Based in UCL Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care, a particular strength of the programme is the focus on exploring the application of public health philosophy to dental public health issues.

Overview

You will develop a broad understanding of the philosophy of dental public health, and in particular the underlying social, economic and political determinants of health. 

The  Dental Public Health programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is designed to encourage maximum student participation and involvement, and is based upon small group teaching seminars, where a questioning approach is actively encouraged, enabling students to challenge the basis for current dental policy and practice. 

Assessment is through internal assignments, examination, oral presentation and the research dissertation.

Careers

Many former students have become chief dental officers, dental public health academics and planners in their own countries.

Employability

Many of our completing students go on to work within governing bodies, healthcare institutions and local dentist practices. A large number also go on to academic careers and commence research degrees within their specified areas of interest at various higher education institutes around the world.

Within the UK, several of our past students are now lecturers in dental public health, while others are consultants in dental public health working at Public Health England.
