Who Are We

Welcome to the course and our community of Paediatric Dentistry Learners! We are passionate about further education in paediatric dentistry and want to make it possible for everyone to get access to the learning they need.

This FutureLearn course is part of a portfolio of learning experiences we already provide ranging from our online blended learning MSc course to the full time in-person specialist level training programme. We are proud to work at the UCL Eastman, one of the worlds largest and leading postgraduate dental schools. We also provide clinical care at UCLH — one of the leading hospitals in the UK.

The over-arching philosophy of our teaching is to try and root it firmly in the evidence, where that doesn’t exist we will give our opinion. Feel free to challenge this as you work through the steps on this course, we value the input of all of our students to help ensure our material is up to date.
