The Burkhart School of Dental Hygiene & Dental Therapy was formally opened in March 1999 by Dame Margaret Seward, then President of the General Dental Council. The first Dental Hygiene Training Programme was an experimental scheme which started at the Eastman Dental Hospital in 1948 and lasted for five years. Government regulations were passed in 1957 to allow the first full training programme to start in Manchester in 1959.
