Juliette Kendall, MSc, BSc


Personal profile


I am the Academic Lead for Admissions for the Division of Dentistry, responsible for coordinating open days, recruitment and interviews for approximately 1100 applicants to our BDS and BSc programmes each year.

As a teaching-focused Lecturer, I work as part of the team delivering the blended learning MSc Advanced Restorative Dentistry (ARD).  The MSc ARD delivers a worldclass taught postgraduate qualification to students based all over the world.  I am the Lead for the Dissertation Unit, supporting staff and students in the supervision of their MSc dissertations. I am the Unit Lead for Research Methods, which is delivered to all taught postgraduate students in the Division of Dentistry.


Research interests

My research activities are focussed on student learning experiences.  I am currently involved in a research study exploring emotions related to dental students’ academic learning of research methods during their postgraduate studies.  Prior to this, I was part of qualitative research study investigating clinical undergraduate teaching.

Prior to moving into a teaching-focussed role, I had a number of posts undertaking evaluation research. Following a large scale HEFCE evaluation of web-based learning in Higher Education in the late 1990’s, the substantive part of my research career has focussed on projects funded by the Department of Health (DoH) evaluating innovative health care provision.  As lead researcher on the DoH funded evaluation of Local Pharmaceutical Services (LPS) contracts at the University of Manchester, I led a team using a mixed methods evaluation to inform contract development for community pharmacy in England and Wales.  Previously, based at Kings College London, I worked within a team of researchers evaluating out of hours health care provision in south east London, including a DoH funded evaluation of NHS Direct.


As Academic Lead for Admissions (Dentistry) I am responsible for coordinating open days and other recruitment activities for the Division.  I review and select applicants for our BDS and BSc UG programmes, from over 1100+ applications each year.  I lead our mini-multiple interviews for approx. 375 applicants.

I am the Lead for the Dissertation Unit on the MSc in Advanced Restorative Dentistry, an innovative online blended learning postgraduate degree.  The substantive part of my role involves the supervision of students undertaking their MSc dissertations. The students use their dissertations to investigate a broad range of topics in the field of aesthetic and restorative dentistry, such as tooth-whitening procedures, emerging restorative materials and public health issues.  The course enables a diverse global community of students to enhance their knowledge and clinical skills in restorative dentistry via academic theory and practical training. 

In addition, I am the Lead for the Research Methods unit, which provides an introduction to research methods for students studying on a variety of Masters programmes in, or affiliated with, the Division of Dentistry.  The unit includes practical and theoretical components relating to study design, epidemiology and evidence based practice.

I have supplementary roles within the Division, related to research ethics, mitigating circumstances and fitness to practice.
