Treatment with students
Routine Dental Service by undergraduate dental students
If you do not have a dentist but require routine dental
treatment, for example fillings, oral hygiene advice, scale and
polish, crowns, bridges or dentures, you may be suitable for
treatment by our student dentists, therapists or hygienists.
The service is free of charge. Treatment is provided by a
dedicated team of staff and students from the School of Oral
and Dental Sciences, one of the top dental schools in the U.K. All
student treatment is closely supervised by qualified clinical
staff. The service operates most days of the week, but you will
need to commit to lengthy appointments and be available to attend
appointments on most days of the week.
The needs of our students change constantly. You will only be
accepted if your dental needs suit the needs of the student
teaching programme at that time. You will be required to attend for
a brief dental examination to assess your suitability for student
treatment. There is no guarantee that you will be accepted. If you
are accepted, you will be discharged at the end of a course of
treatment and will not receive continuing dental care.
