Trosolwg y cwrs

Dental hygienists and therapists work closely with other members of the dental team. A dental hygienist can carry out treatments such as scaling and polishing, oral health promotion and preventative fissure sealants for both adults and children, therapists, in addition are able to carry out a variety of restorative treatments (fillings) on patients. They may also extract deciduous (baby) teeth, undertake pulpotomies (nerve treatments) and place preformed crowns on badly decayed children’s teeth. 

Studying at the only dental hospital in Wales you will have the opportunity to serve and manage a diverse group of patients of with a wide range of dental disease. You will train alongside undergraduate dental hygienists and dentists learning the same skills.  In years two and three you will attend clinical placements at local outreach dental clinics, providing treatment in situations closely allied to the general practice arena. This will support your understanding of how your role fits the dental team environment in preparation for when you qualify.  

Clinical skills are developed in the School’s state of the art clinical skills laboratory, a facility that closely simulates the real clinical experience, allowing you to prepare and practice for patient care. You will be taught by a dedicated team of academic clinical staff and consultants within the dental hospital as well as clinical staff working in the primary care environment. 

The School of Dentistry is located in the University Dental Hospital on Cardiff University’s Heath Park campus, a 53-acre site shared with the University Hospital of Wales. We facilitate a friendly and supportive sense of community that helps ensure that our students succeed. As evidence of such the NSS 2017 found that 95% of our students agreed that staff were good at explaining things. 

Our students have one the best employability records amongst UK dental schools. In 2016/17 100% of our undergraduate students were in employment or further study 6-months post qualification*. Key destinations include primary dental practice, hospital dental practice, academic or research posts. You will be equipped with all the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to prepare you for the working environment of dental hygiene and therapy.

Strwythur y cwrs

We offer two closely allied programmes: a Diploma in Dental Hygiene (two year programme) and a BSc in Dental Hygiene and Therapy (three year programme), both of which are modular, running in parallel for their first two years.

Years two and three offer opportunities for you to attend clinical placements at local outreach dental clinics, providing treatment to the public in situations closely allied to the general practice arena. In some of these areas you will work alongside dental students utilising a teamwork approach to patient care.

Throughout the programmes the teaching and implementation of professionalism is critical. You will be taught aspects of law and ethics in dentistry as well as the practicalities of dental treatments, and to recognise the importance and necessity of your lifelong and professional development.

Your opportunity to engage and motivate patients and provide contemporary clinical treatments make dental hygiene and therapy a stimulating career.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut caf fy addysgu?

Teaching on the programme is integrated, so you will learn the scientific and pathological processes underlying oral and dental disease at the same time as you acquire the clinical skills to manage patients appropriately. We use a variety of methods to enrich your learning experience. These include lectures, small-group seminars and tutorials, direct clinical teaching and e-learning packages. You will be encouraged to research topics and on occasions to present work to your peers.

Knowledge, skills and professional attitudes are assessed both formatively and summatively throughout the course, using a range of assessment tools. Assessment tasks include written examinations and assignments, clinical case reports, practical skills tests, projects, portfolios, competency assessments, online assessments, oral presentations and clinical examinations.

You will receive the support of personal tutors based at the School of Dentistry. When on placements, you will be supported by an experienced clinical lead.

General communication will be delivered via Learning Central, the University’s Virtual Learning Environment, to which all students have access. Notes from lectures and other course material, as well as online assessments, will be available on Learning Central.

The School of Dentistry operates an inclusive curriculum policy. This means that, for most academic assessments, reasonable adjustments can be made in line with recommendations from Student Support. High professional standards are expected, and although reasonable adjustments will be met as far as possible, the School will need to consider the requirements of the General Dental Council. If you have concerns regarding adjustments you may need, we are happy to discuss the nature, implications and potential solutions as part of the pre-application process.

Feedback

Formative feedback is provided following assessment tasks and during clinical encounters both verbally and as digitally recorded written feedback. Students are encouraged to use personalised feedback to inform their future learning. Assessments at each level are scheduled at appropriate stages, and are identifiable within an assessment blueprint.

Sut caf fy asesu?

The assessment schedule is designed to demonstrate that you have: 

  • attained the standards required by Cardiff University for the award of a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy;

  • achieved the required level of competency to become an independent practising dental hygienist/therapist having met the registration standards expected by the General Dental Council (GDC)

This will be measured across four domains identified by the GDC: clinical, communication, professionalism, management and leadership (Preparing for Practise 2015).
