About the course

You develop into an independent practitioner working in the scope of practice of the dental therapist. You will be able to work autonomously and take professional responsibility for your own standards of practice.

Successful completion of this course will provide eligibility to apply to add dental therapy onto your General Dental Council Registration.

You undertake a journey of personal and professional development in a supportive, student-centred environment, learning through negotiation, shared responsibility and mutual respect, which mirrors the type of dental therapist/patient relationship we wish to encourage.
