The internationally renowned Dental Public Health MSc at UCL offers a challenging and innovative programme of study. Based in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, a particular strength of the programme is the focus on exploring the application of public health philosophy to dental public health issues.

Students develop a broad understanding of the philosophy of dental public health, and in particular the underlying social, economic and political determinants of health. They are able to describe and apply the key principles of the Primary Health Care Approach, and demonstrate an up-to-date knowledge of current concepts and theories.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of eight core modules (120 credits) and a project report (60 credits).

Core modules

  • Philosophy and Principles of Dental Public Health
  • Oral Epidemiology
  • Basic Statistics for Medical Sciences
  • Principles and Practice of Oral Health Promotion
  • Research Methods in Dental Public Health
  • Regression Modelling
  • Evidence Based Dental Practice
  • Planning for Better Oral Health


All MSc students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a report of no more than 12,000 words.

Teaching and learning

The programme is designed to encourage maximum student participation and involvement, and is based upon small group teaching seminars, where a questioning approach is actively encouraged, enabling students to challenge the basis for current dental policy and practice. Assessment is through internal assignments, examination, oral presentation and the research dissertation.



All applicants must normally hold an approved dental or medical qualification. Applicants must be confident using computers and show evidence of numeracy (e.g. GCSE Mathematics or Statistics).
