We are Europe’s largest dental corporate – delivering excellent care to 10 million patients through our network of over 650 practices and 7,500 dental professionals.

We believe that our growing ‘Group’ philosophy is the way forward in Dental care, but more than that, we appreciate the importance of getting the right experience at the right time in your dental career, and that starts at Dental School. We have put together an industry leading work placement scheme, which will give you access to our busy primary care practices. During the placement you will have the chance to shadow and observe a number of different dental care professionals, to help you build a picture of what life is like in a busy general practice. By seeing the different roles within the practice undertake their daily tasks, you can start building a clearer picture of how all the facets of the team come together to provide not just the best, but also correct patient treatment. We have 73 locations across the UK where you can develop your understanding of what life after dental school could look like should you choose a rewarding career in general practice. 

The work placement scheme was designed to be a contrast to your clinics at dental school in order to show you the difference in pace, and expose you to everyday NHS dentistry. Whilst you are developing your hands on clinical skills during term time, you can start to develop an understanding of the different levels of patient needs, the NHS system, and how dentistry in a corporate setting works via this scheme. 

The scheme operates on a first come first served basis from 1st June - 30th September 2016. Due to high demand and limited availability, we are only able to offer placements to students who are currently attending a UK dental school. Below are the practice locations where we can offer work experience:
