    it says in the email they r doing this so that they can get a better picture of the "large" amount applying

    but my reasonin is that they have a new admissions lady and so things have been a bit differnt...

    Hey guys

    Has anyone here had an interview at Bristol? What was it like? What kind of questions? I read that they ask you to write an essay, could someone let me know what kind of topics the essay is on? And what did you take to show manual dexterity?

    Any info you can PM me will be really helpful. Thanks!

    My ineterview was not bad, expect them to ask you to write a short essay before starting the interview.
    They asked pretty standard questions: why dent? what are your plans after grad? tell us about an intersting case you saw during work exp? ...etc
    For manual dext i took a piece of wood work
    Good Luck!

        Ok the essay is usually "who are the different members of the dental team" or something like that - so dentist, dental hygienist, lab technician, nurse etc etc. Check the nhs website and it says it all there. After all if it doesnt come up as the essay question they may ask something like that in the interview.

        Things to have prepared: from work experience they like to ask you about one procedure you observed - not in much detail but just to show that you're aware of different procedures.

        Check the bbc for any new news stories which concern dentists or the nhs as a whole.

        Manual dexterity - you can bring in an example - eg a painting/something crafty you've done/music examination certificates. One guy even brought in a cake his mum had iced and decorated for him!

        Charity work - what you've gained and learned from your volunteering or charity work - stick mostly to things concerning communicating with people.

        Any more questions just ask.

        You start clinical after easter in year 2, seeing your own patients for periodontal treatment with another person from the year nursing for you. You in turn nurse for them in their sessions. You'll also start prosthetics and Clinical Skills lab in year 2 - learning how to make dentures etc.
