    It's not about length, its about what you learnt from it, but there is nothing wrong with having more, but like I said its about what you learnt from it, I only had two weeks work experience too, I hope its enough. But what you should also have is voluntary work perhaps in a nursing home, that shows commitment and dedication and giving back to the community.

    The most any university specifies is 'minimum 2 weeks work experience', though some (like Manchester) say that the 2 weeks must be within a general dental practice.

    But you have two weeks, which is enough, so just check the websites of the particular schools you apply to to ensure that they are fine with 2 weeks in total (which most are).

    Though, as always, the more you do, the better.
