The Young Dentist Programme

The Young Dentist Programme

London • Ages 15-18

7th - 8th November 2020
Live & Online

On the Young Dentist Programme, a group of experienced dentists will immerse you in a series of interactive role-plays, simulations, seminars, and Q&A sessions, to give you an immersive experience of practising dentistry.

You will be immersed in a simulated dental practice, coached on how to lead a patient consultation from start to finish and how to maximise your chances of gaining entry into a top dental school. You will also be coached on your dexterity skills and learn how to identify problems in public health.

The programme takes place over 2 days – Saturday dedicated to essential skills and Sunday to dental specialities. You can choose to attend either one or both days.

Attendance will give you a competitive edge in the Dental School application process and a 'super-curricular' experience to add to your UCAS form.
