Foundation Degree in oral health scienceWatch
After sitting my alevels I’m not feeling 100% and I am looking at back ups for the worst case possible. I really want to do Dental Hygeine and Therapy in QMUL however you need ABB which I don’t feel like I will get. I’m order to Qualify as a Dental Hygeinst you need to follow the GDC which does say 3 ways in obtaining the job; 1) undergraduate degree in dental hygeine/ oral health 2) diploma in Dental hygeine 3) Foundation Degree in Oral Health. Although I am looking into a foundation Degree, I’m not sure whether this fully qualifies me as a dental hygienist and whether there is any loophole to this because surely if you are studying a undergraduate degree you are more qualified. For this reason I’m not sure if I should look into the foundation Degree as I’m not sure if I can qualify in Dental Hygeine from this Degree soley. It would be great if someone could help me out !! Thanks x
So if I do a foundation course in Dental Hygeine at Essex I would still need to do a BSc aswell I’m order to qualify as a dental hygeinst ? Or would I only do the BSc if I wanted to also have a dental therapy qualification ?
I’m literally just waiting for my results now but I genuinely don’t feel like I did well at all, not even enough to get into a foundation year ;( I would want to re sit if I didn’t get my grades but subjects like Maths and Biology, I just don’t know how much more effort I can put in to get A’s and B’s ! I really am just so confused about my life choices at the moment 😖😖
