Validated by The Open University, this exciting course offers a practical focus on Dental Technology; allowing students to develop specialist skills in depth, whilst also gaining a broad, contextual understanding of the profession. Studied over two years (full-time), students will focus on the basic professional and practical skills required for success in the professions (such as basic anatomy for dentistry, public health and legislation) in the first year, then develop their theoretical knowledge and technical abilities (focusing on dental technology skills in a variety of areas) during the second year.
Level 4 (Year One)
The course is aimed at a natural progression to the BSc Dental Technology top up course which will be offered by the college from 2019/20.
Alternatively, graduates can progress in the role working in commercial or NHS environments.
