Dental Practice Unit
The Dental Practice Unit houses ten dental surgeries in which senior dental students and hygiene and therapy students undertake clinical work. It was upgraded and refurbished in 2007 with a grant from the Higher Education Funding Council and an HTM01-05 compliant decontamination suite was installed in 2012.
This facility enables students to treat adult patients in an integrated manner and deliver high quality care in a well-supported clinical environment. By working with experienced dental nurses and using external laboratories students can experience the value of teamworking and learn to develop patient-centered treatment plans and deliver them in a timely fashion.
