What our students and staff say

Student view

"UCL Eastman Dental Institute has such an excellent reputation, and having observed the clinical work of specialists who had trained at the Eastman, I aspired to undertake my graduate training there too. I am particularly impressed by the dedication of the department to the highest standards both academically and clinically."

David Rawson-Cain

Endodontology MClinDent
Staff view

"I took up the position as a Clinical Lecturer at the Eastman Dental Institute in 1997 due to its reputation for graduate dental education and the close working relationship between clinical and research departments. My research focused on the clinical efficacy of endodontic treatment which generated further exploration in the laboratory to develop novel approaches to control root canal infections. I most enjoy coaching and mentoring students and junior staff to reach their full potential."
