Dr Patricia Neville


Dr Neville currently teaches 3 courses:


I am Theme Lead for the Personal and Professional Development section of the current BDS curriculum(BDS 18) and am Theme Lead for Ethics, Law, Professionalism and Social Accountability in the new BDS currculum(BDS21)

As a sociologist, I am particularly interested in teaching a sociological perspective to understanding oral health, both as an individual health behaviour as well as a social phenomenon. 

I have extensive experience of teaching sociology and social science to undergraduate and postgraduate students. 

I have also supervised undergraduate projects and postgraduate dissertations on a variety of topics.

I would welcome students who are interested in pursing research on: the sociology of health and oral health, the media representation of oral health, and gender and diversity issues in the dental profession.
