Hi I have had 3 weeks of work Exp with 2 diff surgeries but the thing is I don't knw what to ask the dentist . Like the only questions which I ask them is life as a dentist and a bit about private and nhs but I don't find these questions to be that good . I wud really appreciate if someone could tell me a list of questions to be asked to the dentist.
One other question that I have is what are the things you are meant to observe and make a note of like u can copy all the procedures and etc but how do these show what have you learnt or how has this Exp helped my decision of being a dentist and what sort of learning Exp I have achieved?? I don't know how to mention what sort of learning Exp was the work Exp. By mentioning I mean how do I mention about dis in the personal statement and the interview
Sorry if it's confusing but any help wud be appreciated

Edited Sorry Junaid96, misread your post thinking you were an applicant :P
In terms of questions I just asked things I was unsure about. You're not going to need to know how to do a crown prep but just analyse and ask about-
-System of how they work
-Intra/inter-relations with wider dental team and patients
-Anything you're viewing you don't really understand why it's being done.

Yeh I know - I initially misread your post and highlighted why you were doing dentistry if you weren't interested! Sorry! Thanks for also providing some useful tips to applicants aswell
Ask about things like the Jimmy Steele Report, differences between GP's and GDP's. In essence both are similar, however there are huge differences between them as primary care providers, e.g. GP's are funded for surgeries, GDP's are not. Fluoridation, amalgam are all part of health politics. Widening access, what should be done, what is key to improving oral health care.
Would you be able to help me with some personal statement tips ad techniques specially the work Exp paragraph and the opening paragraph
Thanks in adv..
Btw are you a dental applicant or a current student and what are your stats?
