This unique Masters programme in collaboration with our partners GSL Dental College (India) and the University of Dundee, aims to fill an existing gap in the training of Dentists worldwide. Integrating Dental Public Health with your clinical training will support you in developing your employability skills to respond to wider and complex health/oral health issues in society.

By combining Dental Public Health in clinical dentistry, you will learn how to undertake much needed health surveillance, have raised awareness of how to identify and tackle inequalities, move towards more upstream approaches for prevention and health promotion, and empower individuals and communities to improve their oral health by anticipatory guidance and health coaching.
