Our Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) course will prepare you for a dentistry career through a combination of clinical study and basic and advanced dental sciences.
Once you have mastered basic competencies in the University's skills facilities , you will move on to treating patients in both the University Dental Hospital of Manchester and local outreach clinics early in the course.
You will learn to work within a dental team to take a patient-centred approach to clinical care, practicing in a professional, safe and ethical manner.
Our students are also trained to become reflective practitioners who are committed to lifelong learning.
**Early clinical experience**
You will be introduced to the clinical environment in the first semester of Year 1, enabling you to integrate theory and practice early on in the course.
Learn alongside students and professionals from a range of backgrounds, including those training in complementary professions such as dental nursing and therapy.
You can study another subject to achieve a BSc award over one year between Years 2 and 3 of the BDS course.
**Foundation year available**
Students who do not have the required science qualifications for Year 1 entry but have achieved good grades in other non-science subjects may apply for the BDS with Foundation Year.
