    How do you ask a dental practice or hospital for work experience? Do you tell them that you want work experience to get into dentistry/medicine, or just not mention anything about university? Also I've asked a few places if I could do work experience, and they all thought I was talking about the year 10 compulsory work experience that everyone has to do.

    Basically, what do I say when asking for work experience.

    There's a similar thread going on right now with Work Experience Advice:


    As an extra tip...If you can find the time and guts to go directly to a dental practice and meet the principal in person, it is much harder for them to reject you. They also tend to equate such an initiative with a real determination to join the profession.
