If you want to work in a hospital environment and specialise, you can undergo further specialist training in orthodontics, paediatric dentistry, restorative dentistry and surgical dentistry. Continual professional development is vital as Dentistry changes all the time.
Dental Therapists and Clinical Dental Technologists may be eligible to apply for registration with the General Dental Council and work in dentistry as a dental care professional. Graduates who gain a 2.1 degree can apply for entry to the BDS programme.
