Better Care


Birmingham Dental Hospital provides a training environment for undergraduate dental students, postgraduate dentists, student hygienists, therapists and trainee dental nurses.  All students are very closely supervised and Birmingham Dental Hospital regards research as part of its core business. 

We want to provide the best care for our patients and we can only do this by engaging in internationally excellent research.  Our research programmes have a strong translational focus, being driven by clinical questions, and aim to provide novel diagnostic and therapeutic solutions to the most common oral and general health problems.  We employ cutting-edge technologies within state-of-the-art laboratories to explore disease mechanisms, improve our understanding of pathogenic processes, and formulate new healthcare solutions based upon this new knowledge. 

Our clinician-basic science partnerships provide broad expertise and allow us to exploit our findings through clinical trials of novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
