Programme overview

This programme develops your knowledge and enhances your clinical skills through hands-on clinical experience in oral surgery. In addition to study days and clinical skills teaching, you will undertake a clinical attachment at the University of Bristol Dental School where you will treat oral surgery patients under the supervision of hospital specialists.

You will attend outpatient clinics and operate under close supervision in the oral surgery department of the University of Bristol Dental School.

Our programme has been specifically designed for dental practitioners who want to develop their skills in providing clinical oral surgery for their patients in practice.

Students who complete both this programme and the Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Conscious Sedation and Anxiety Management will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Oral Surgery, Clinical Conscious Sedation and Anxiety Management.

This programme will be covered in our Oral and Dental Sciences webinar during our virtual open week. Register today.
