Dental Public Health

The internationally renowned Dental Public Health MSc at UCL offers a challenging and innovative programme of study. Based in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, a particular strength of the programme is the focus on exploring the application of public health philosophy to dental public health issues.

All applicants must normally hold an approved dental or medical qualification. Applicants must be confident using computers and show evidence of numeracy (e.g. GCSE mathematics or statistics).

Course modules

Core modules: Philosophy and principles of dental public health; oral epidemiology; basic statistics for medical sciences; principles and practice of oral health promotion; research methods in dental public health; regression modelling; evidence based dental practice; planning for better oral health.

Assessment methods

The programme is designed to encourage maximum student participation and involvement, and is based upon small group teaching seminars, where a questioning approach is actively encouraged, enabling students to challenge the basis for current dental policy and practice.
