Offering a unique model of team-based education, replicating a real life dental surgery.
What we Offer
The University of Portsmouth Dental Academy is a state of the art training facility developed in partnership between the University, King’s College London Dental Institute (KCLDI) and the National Health Service (NHS).
The Dental Academy offers a unique model of team-based education which facilitates a shared learning experience for Dental Care Professional students from the University and final year dental students from KCLDI. Students and staff operate via four practice teams and an NHS contract which replicates the reality of working in dental practice. Students and staff work clinically in the Dental Academy and across a wide variety of community settings.
We passionately believe that the dental team must have the opportunity of training together in the reality of different dental and community settings if they are going to be effective members of healthcare teams of the future.
