Ms Yasfim Haque

Clinical Lecturer in Primary Care Dentistry

School of Dentistry


I qualified from Cardiff Dental school in 2000 and completed my vocational training in Essex.

I have completed various hospital posts both in the UK and abroad, having gained broad- based experience in hospital, community and salaried services.

I work as a part-time clinical lecturer at the Dental school, providing chairside supervision to undergraduates, one day a week.

I am also involved in outreach work with the undergraduates at the Primary Dental Care Unit in St David's Hospital, since 2011. Here, I provide didactic teaching as well as clinical supervision of dental students.

My working week is divided between hospital teaching and treating my own patients, as a general dental practitioner in a busy, local surgery.
