    Hey I did work experience in a general practice this year, im in year 10, and i thought it was great. Everyone thought id not want to do dentistry anymore, but they were reeeeeaaaaly wrong... I love it now. I would greatly recommend it, although checkups can get boring, its the basics and must be seen

    I think bristol accepts atleast 4weeks, but its different for different universities. Also, i was advised to try different practices like, General practice, Maxillofacial surgery, Hospital dentistry, Dental research/laboratory, perhaps a specialised field (orthodontics), and community dentistry(Which is hard to find). But anyway with work experience liek that, you would be presenting a strong application to unis

    Hope it helped, and once again research the uni you want to go to first.

    How do they know how much you've done?

    I have a week with an orthodontist and a week with a GDP coming up, coupled with a week at my local Hospice.

    That should be enough, yeah?

    i only did 1 week. got rejected from KCL, sheffield, and bristol with expected grades of AAB, id go for 3-4 weeks. but try to get a bit of everything you know, private and NHS, bit of surgery and some hygene, then maybe some specialist ones too.
    i got one rely good one where i worked as a dental nurse for 2 days, so i mixed up adhesives, helped with the tools, did the suction, and then the dentist gave me 2 (previousely extracted) teeth to fill myself, it was amazing!!

    I've done two weeks of work experience now, was going to do a third but it doesn't look like its going to happen. But i've got a day in a dental clinic. That should be fine shouldn't it... i've got plenty to talk about, i think.

    Yeah I think I can only do about two weeks, but I did a couple of days abroad too so hopefully it should be fine!
