Is work experience essential when applying to the Dentistry BDS programme?



All applicants are advised to seek a period of work experience/shadowing in a local dental practice or hospital, preferably in more than one establishment. We do not set a minimum period of work experience but advise candidates to obtain as much and as varied work experience as possible.
