Congratulations to the 2018 MClinDent Masters candidates

Congratulations to the eight general practitioners who successfully completed the inaugural MClinDent (Masters in General Dental Practice) course.  The eight practitioners took the time out from their practice, or their HSE work, to successfully complete two didactic modules,  24 hands-on days, and a Dissertation.

Congratulations and a heartiest ‘thank you’ to Dr Michael O’Sullivan and his team in the DDUH who made this Masters possible.
