CPD and Information Events

Dentistry students

The School of Dentistry UCLan presents a range of practical and lecture-based CPD events at the Preston campus. We can offer the best of tuition, equipment and facilities at one of the most accessible Higher Education Centres for Dentistry in the region.

Our practical courses take place in the newly upgraded Phantom Head room, which can accommodate up to 40 students at a time. We have a specialist Dental Clinic on site, and all the facilities for lectures and catering that you would expect in UCLan’s large and modern campus.

General dental practitioners and other dental professionals are required to remain up-to-date with their skills and knowledge in order to give their patients the best possible care and treatment. The School of Dentistry prides itself in keeping in touch with issues pertinent to the educational needs of those working within primary dental care dentistry. The School is delighted to be able to offer a range of CPD events designed with the dental practitioner and the dental team in mind.
