    Hello everyone.

    I'll be applying for dentistry for 2014 entry, and am currently looking for work experience. I have been observing (shadowing) a dentist weekly since February. However I don't know whether this is classed as 'work experience'?
    I was also wondering whether there are any forms that myself and the dentists have to fill out?

    Could anyone who is in the same boat as me, or has already secured their placement share some words of wisdom ahah.
