Barts And The London Queen Marys

Queen Mary Dentistry School

Overview of Barts and the London Dental School


The Institute of Dentistry at Barts and The London Medicine and Dentistry has now been open for over 110 years. As such, it has some of the most famous alumni of any dental university in the UK.  

It is located across East London, with the institute of dentistry now in the Royal London Hospital (Alexandra Wing). This has been designed to be clinical functional, with cutting-edge technology and world-class research. 

Previously the number 1 ranked university for dentistry in the UK, Queen Mary University of London Dentistry will help you become one of the best dentists. 


Barts Dental School Course Structure

Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry offer a five year dental degree that has a traditional teaching style. This means that students will learn through a mixture of different teaching arrangements - lectures, seminars, clinical teaching, and small group PBL style teaching is integrated throughout the five years of study. 

Queen Mary London Dentistry embraces a multidisciplinary approach to the acquisition of knowledge and skills and early clinical exposure is a key part of the course. In addition, dental students develop their clinical skills in several of our key outreach clinics, ensuring that they experience a wide range of primary care settings. You will be encouraged to take a holistic approach to dentistry – studying the human sciences, including sociology and psychology, to examine patients’ attitudes to oral healthcare and the dental profession. You will also experience the community aspects of dentistry through studying Dental Public Health.
