Impatient to progress your career in Oral Health?
Whether you are an aspiring dental hygienist, or looking to progress to becoming a dental therapist, we have a course for you.
Here at Essex, you'll learn not only the practical skills required for practise, but also the critical skills to take a holistic approach to patient care.
We have two undergraduate courses on offer:
If you are passionate about something, you should make the most of every opportunity that comes your way. I'm trying to do things that push me out of my comfort zone and make me the best that I can be. I've volunteered with the dental team at Crisis at Christmas. Many of us take good oral health for granted and witnessing individuals who are genuinely in need without the resources available to them to have dental/healthcare whenever they need is incredibly humbling.
Oral health is evolving at an exciting pace. Be at the forefront of the change.
Under the proposed new dental contract, dental practices that can evidence enhanced skills in advanced care are likely to be commissioned to provide specialised services such as periodontology. Whether you’re a Dentist or a Hygienist/Dental Therapist looking to top up your skills set, we have a course to suit you.
When you choose to study with us, you'll gain more than just a qualification. You'll be part of our learning community, and we've got plenty to offer. Check out our facilities, and find out more about the School of Health and Social Care.
The MSc course was the best step I could have taken for my career development. Whilst undertaking the course, little eureka moments of applying my new knowledge in the clinical sessions made me realise how far I have come.
