Dental public health offers you the opportunity to enhance professional, clinical and academic knowledge alongside others from multi-disciplinary backgrounds around the world.
The Dental Public Health course from University of Leeds will suit dental professionals or public health professionals who want to grow their knowledge, skills and commitment to develop equitable and fair dental health services. It includes tutors from outside the university environment and with specialist knowledge and experience in oral health protection and the management of dental services locally.
There are dental public health opportunities at all levels of health service planning, government offices and health departments, health agencies and in academia.
Candidates studying our MSc in Dental Public Health may be eligible to continue their studies in the PhD or Doctor of paediatric dentistry programmes. If you’re interested in combining your studies in this way, please speak to Professor Gail Douglas, Dr Julia Csikar, Dr Richard Balmer or our admissions team before applying to find out more about your options.
