Dentistry at University of Bristol Dental School

Overview of University of Bristol Dental School


The Bristol Dental School has evolved a strong interdisciplinary research culture with productive interfacing of clinical dentistry and basic scientific research. The research laboratories are all in near proximity to clinical facilities (patient clinics, PCU, and clinical trials) thus promoting synergy between basic and clinical sciences research.


Bristol University Dentistry Course Structure

This five-year degree comprises clinical activity with integrated scientific and technical teaching. With a strong core of clinical work throughout, theory, science, clinical skills, personal and professional development, and teamwork are integrated at the relevant levels.

Year one introduces the clinical environment through peer group activities and observations. Clinical skills training and patient contact commence early in year two.

Later in the Bristol Uni Dentistry program you can choose to intercalate in a science subject to obtain an Honours BA or BSc. There is the opportunity to undertake community work in the UK or abroad during your elective in year four.

You will begin your dental practice in the Bristol Dental Hospital before extending your practice to community teaching clinics in the city. Here you will treat patients with a wide variety of dental diseases in a primary care setting in preparation for dental practice beyond graduation.
