 Department of Oral Hygiene

 

The Department of Oral Hygiene is primarily responsible for development and delivery of the Degree in Oral Health (BOH). This programme aims to produce graduates competent to promote the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities in private practice and public health environments. To this end students are exposed to a range of learning opportunities in individual patient care as well as community based service learning.  Oral Hygiene as a discipline is underpinned by subject areas such as clinical practice, oral diseases and prevention, health and oral health promotion, social and behavioural sciences, practice management and applied research. In line with these areas of expertise, the department also gives input into the BChD and University Interdisciplinary core modules.​​​
