Learning Dentistry is challenging for young people who are expected to undertake a spectrum of learning encompassing academic, practical and professional skills.

The pre-clinical/clinical interface is a transitional point within the course where the development of professional skills is most crucial. The School wished to support the students at this point; by developing generic skills that underpins their clinical interactions with patients and other members of the dental team throughout the course and their careers.

The provision of a range of virtual learning materials increased students’ confidence in managing clinical situations and in interacting with clinical members of staff. The way in which students are directed to these learning tools is being strengthened to ensure they are easily accessible by all.
