BPP University Dental Hygiene

Dental Hygienists and Dental Therapists work closely with other members of the Dental team.  They are able to carry out preventive and periodontal treatments for adults and children. They carry out a variety of treatments on a wide range of patients including fillings, radiographs and impressions. They may also extract deciduous teeth, undertake pulpotomies and place preformed crowns on children’s teeth.

This is an integrated programme, approved by the General Dental Council, leading to a qualification in dental hygiene and dental therapy. It is a collaborative programme funded via the Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust and validated by the University.
