    Hi guys,

    I'm interested in going on something that'll show i'm interested in dentistry but I haven't really found many univeristies or organisations that run courses that give you a bit of extra help/experience above and beyong work experience.

    If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd be really grateful.

    thanks!

    Hi,

    Good question.
    I am a 4th year Dental student. I enrolled on a cake decorating course, which was an adult NVQ qualification in order to prove my manual dexterity.

    It defiantly looked good on the PS and the interviewers always picked up on it. I would recommend something like this if you have the time, perhaps a sewing course or mechanics or electronics course would also be good.

    If you would like a PDF pack which includes a sample PS and tips etc, send me your email or input it here and I can send it over.
