Discover Dentistry

Christopher Stokes, The University of Sheffield

What do dentists do and why is it important?

Anyone who’s ever had a toothache can attest to the vital role dentists play in ensuring good public health. But behind the cliches of the profession lies a rich and relevant history waiting to be discovered.

On this course, you’ll explore the intricacies of what dentists do.

Joining Professor Christopher Stokes from the School of Clinical Dentistry at The University of Sheffield, you’ll learn the essentials of dentistry from leading dental experts.

You’ll learn about the different roles on a dental team, explore tooth anatomy and disease, and find out how dentistry differs from country to country.

You’ll also learn how to become a dentist and get a valuable introduction to studying dentistry degrees.

This course is for anyone interested in dentistry or science and is designed to be enjoyed without prior knowledge.

It would be especially valuable for dentistry professionals, or anyone thinking of entering the profession.

Due to the highly visual nature of dentistry, a small number of exercises in the course, unfortunately, won’t be accessible to learners with visual impairment.
