    I have done the following work experience so far:

    One continuous week in maxfax.
    Three days in a GDP, over two weeks. (tues, thurs, thurs)
    Three days in another GDP, over two weeks. (wed, thurs, thurs)
    Three completely separate days in orthodontics.

    So how much work experience do I actually have? One of the university websites states that "applicants must have a minimum of two weeks work experience in a general dental practice". How many weeks do I have? Do I have four weeks because my GDP work experience has spread over four weeks, or do I only have one week because it only adds up to six days?

    You have 6 days in GDP, 3 days in Orthodontics, 1 week in Maxfax.

    It is better if you could just book a couple of weeks in a block in another GDP to get your minimum 2 weeks, or do some ongoing work experience once a week for a couple of months. You have varied work experience though which is good.

    Also, does it matter what hours I do?

    Because I have done about 4 hours per day, on average.

    You don't have to tell them hours.
    Just make sure you have 10 days (even if it's 10 x 4hr days) before you submit your application.

    How did you get your maxfax work experience?
