The Young Dentist Weekend

Overview

The Young Dentist Weekend gives students aged 15-18 a chance to test-drive life as a dentist. Learn from top dentists as they guide you through a series of interactive activities: take part in a patient consultation, examine X-rays and carve a tooth. You will also be coached on how to get a place at a top dental school, with expert guidance on how to excel in applications, interviews, the UCAT & BMAT, and more.

You can attend either in-person in London or live online. Register now to gain an edge over other aspiring dentists, and a super-curricular experience to add to your university application.

    WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY ABOUT US

    Covid-19

    In the unlikely event that the in-person programme is completely cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will receive a refund. We have never yet had to cancel a London summer experience, having successfully delivered programmes during the summers of 2020 and 2021, with strict social distancing and excellent feedback. We shall of course adhere to all Covid-related government guidelines in place at the time of the programme and keep student safety as the highest priority.

    If you pay via credit because you postponed a previous booking then the credit note will be reissued to you in full.
