Course overview

This course unit is for students who want to explore how to get the best from a system for providing oral healthcare - both treatment and prevention. It is about putting into action our plans for a service.

We aim to enable the student to understand the systems within which dental services are planned and delivered, to identify the opportunities for improvement and to anticipate and address the barriers to change.

Throughout, there is an emphasis on preventing oral health problems and on reducing inequalities. It is not assumed that students have taken any other course units prior to starting this unit.

  2. Systems for financing and remuneration and impact on delivery of dental care.

  4. Planning services for population needs at system and local level.
