Work experience will help you decide if dentistry is for you, and importantly give you valuable first-hand insight. We strongly recommended this if you are applying to study dentistry.
The School may be able to help find a suitable placement if you are having difficulty organising one.
Through the Newcastle University Dental Graduates Association and links with training practices we have contacts with dentists throughout the UK. Please e-mail your details including a contact address, e-mail and telephone number to Michelle.Smith@newcastle.ac.uk
If you would like to arrange a week of work experience at the Dental Hospital in Newcastle, please write (including your contact details and the dates you would hope to visit) to:
Mrs Lynn Nichol
The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Newcastle upon Tyne
You can also get help in securing work experience through the Connexions service in your area.
