The course adopts a combination of innovative teaching methods including case-based scenarios, group work, and simulation using the advanced facilities in our teaching clinic and laboratories.
In this course, you will gain in-depth knowledge and develop skills to deliver dental hygiene and therapeutic treatment services, oral health education and promotion to individuals and the community. You will have opportunities to experience clinical practices and placements in a variety of dental settings and learn to work with both children and adult clients.
