Dentistry at KCLWatch
More about King's College London
I hope you find the folowing introduction to the course information helpful...
After a one-week introductory course to prepare you for study at university, and on the dentistry programme in particular, the remainder of the year is spent studying biomedical sciences and topics relevant to the practice of dentistry. Much effort has been put into making this year absolutely relevant to dentistry. Basic topics such as molecular and cell biology, and basic human systems specific to dentistry, will be covered. Throughout the year a course on applied dental science will introduce you to the clinical aspects of dental studies and show the relevance of the basic sciences. This course will include time assisting colleagues on the clinic and will introduce you to haptic technology. Linked to the practical courses will be biomedical science subjects such as the anatomy of the head and neck, oral biology and you will also develop a relevant understanding of the nervous system.
