- Course: Dental Surgery MChD/BChD, Oral Science BSc
For me, the clinical opportunities at the Leeds Dental Hospital are the most exciting part of my degree. Not only does being on clinic give you a chance to put the theoretical principles of dentistry into practice, it also allows you to be in the driving seat of being a real dentist.
I am faced with treating members of the public with problems related to their oral health, from cases of bleeding gums to extractions. It can be quite daunting at first but the experience of treating patients and making sure they are satisfied with their oral health is very rewarding. This has allowed me to increase my confidence as a dental student and I look forward to the challenges that lay ahead.
