The undergraduate programme in Dental Nurse Training is unique in Wales. The course aims to provide students with a practical and intellectual knowledge of dental nursing to allow them to practise competently as a dental nurse in a wide range of clinical areas and to promote team working in the dental profession.
This programme is awaiting approval from the General Dental Council.
The programme allows students to gain both an academic award and a professional registration as a dental nurse (subject to sufficiency by the GDC).
This programme will re-commence as a two-year, part-time programme in September 2014. Further details can be obtained from the Programme Administrator at:
