Paediatric Dentistry DDent

A full-time, three-year programme taught with specialist-level clinical practice and including doctorate-level research.

Why Paediatric Dentistry?

Paediatric Dentistry is an extremely rewarding and enjoyable specialty, which allows you to experience and undertake all aspects of dental care in children. Guiding a child’s dental development so that they reach adulthood with a functional, aesthetic and pain free dentition is uniquely satisfying. 

Why Eastman?

Our Paediatric Dentistry programmes train graduates to be able to diagnose, treatment plan and manage paediatric patients with a wide variety of conditions.

We provide an evidence-based approach to the specialty in a supportive environment. All our students undertake a research project a part of the course with many of them having their research accepted for publication.

Teaching is undertaken by senior academic and clinical staff, many of whom have roles in other organisations including the Royal College of Surgeons and the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry. Several of our staff are examiners for the Membership in Paediatric Dentistry Examinations.
