Dental education has been delivered in Queen's University for just over 100 years, with the Dental School celebrating its centenary in 2020. During that time, the undergraduate curriculum has evolved greatly, through innovations in the delivery of teaching and assessment driven by changes in educational practice, developing technologies and, most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout all of these changes, our focus remains on our students, their wellbeing, and their development as lifelong learners for a career in the dental profession.
