Higher Education Diploma Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy

Course description
The Higher Education Diploma in Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy is a 27-month full-time course (with an April start date) enabling students to gain professional accreditation as dental hygienists and dental therapists.

We recognise the importance of training the dental team together so you’ll learn alongside dental students in a way that prepares you for practice.

You’ll also benefit from our outreach training programme. It’s one of the most rigorous placement programmes in the UK. Treating patients of all ages and backgrounds in real work environments sharpens your skills and gives you a head start in your career.

Our students find the course provides them with opportunities to explore ideas, apply what they have learnt and to achieve their best. This is reflected in the National Student Survey where we consistently achieve 100 per cent overall student satisfaction.

Our teaching is driven by world-class research so you’ll learn about the new techniques and advances that are rapidly taking place in the field of dentistry. Our research is multidisciplinary with a mix of biomedical, engineering and social scientists working together for the advancement of clinical excellence. You’ll also benefit from first class facilities, including our new virtual simulation suite where you can practice dentistry in a virtual reality environment.
