Dentistry Work Experience – Summer Work Placements


We can offer Dental Students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience within a modern dental practice with the latest equipment and the support of our Associates, Clinical Specialists and practice teams. Join us on a dentistry work experience placement and you’ll gain exposure to a live practice environment, a better understanding of NHS rules/regulations and the UDA system, which can all help set you apart when applying for your Dental Foundation year. You’ll also get the chance to impress an organisation that’s investing in the future of dentistry and could provide you with a great start to your career.

Please note that due to high demand and limited places, we are only able to offer dentistry placements to students who are currently attending a UK dental school. The scheme is open to all years (1 to 5) and operates on a first come first served basis.
