At your initial screening appointments, you will be assessed to determine if you are a suitable patient for our students. Please see below a notice which is posted in all Faculty clinics regarding patient suitability:
Patients and prospective patients are advised that not everyone is suitable to become or remain a patient in the teaching clinics of the Faculty of Dentistry due to the teaching requirements for the students. The following criteria may indicate unsuitability:-
· A lack of medical information.
· Extensive and/or complex dental treatment is required.
· Patient management challenges are beyond the capability of an undergraduate student.
· Complex medical history.
· Dental treatment needs which are not compatible with our educational programme.
· A combination of any of the above criteria.
Full service facility and provide fillings, dentures, braces, bridges, implants, children's dentistry, root canals, crowns, treatment of gum disease, extractions of wisdom teeth and more. Some programmes have a long waiting list, particularly for braces and implants.
Reduced fees are charged.
How it Works:
Initial step will be to book an appointment for yourself in Oral Diagnosis department in order for a determination to be made of treatment needs as well as suitability for the programme. Before booking this appointment, you should be aware of a few points:
Treatment at the Faculty of Dentistry is always provided by student dentists. Students are always supervised by qualified dental practitioners.
Because treatment is provided by the students, who have limited clinical time available to them, your treatment will take longer to complete than it would in a private practice care setting.
As a school, there are certain times of the year when the Faculty clinics close altogether. These include a break over the Christmas holidays when we are closed from mid-December until after New Year's and the end of the school year at the beginning of July until the end of August.
Extremely limited patient care available in July and August.
