The Work of a Dentist
Dentistry is the branch of medicine concerned with teeth and gums and the health of the mouth.
Educational and Other Qualifications
Both Trinity College Dublin and University College Cork offer courses in Dentistry. General admission procedures to study of dentistry is competitive and based on the CAO points system. Both courses are five years in duration.
There is a minimum points entry level and these are minimum subject requirements; these may differ between the two universities.
Because of the demand for places many Irish school-leavers apply to Dental Schools in the United Kingdom throughout the UCCA system.
