Dental treatment by undergraduate students

Our dental services are part of the King's College London Dental Institute, which trains dentists.

We offer free routine treatments by undergraduate dental students. Treating patients gives dental students the range of experience they need.

Undergraduate students carry out routine treatment supervised by a senior member of staff.

This service is not suitable for children.

If your treatment becomes more complex and is unsuitable for students, you may be asked to get your future treatment at a dental practice rather than at our hospital.

If you have an existing complex medical condition, it may mean you are not suitable for treatment on the open plan undergraduate clinics. You may need to get treatment outside of the hospital.

This service may be suitable if you need:

  • routine fillings
  • simple gum treatment
  • limited crowns
  • dentures
  • root canal fillings

This service is not suitable if:

  • you need multiple crowns and bridges
  • you need dental implants
  • you need treatment for complex gum problems
  • you need re-treatment of root fillings
