    I'm really struggling to find work experience for dentistry. After GCSEs I have a long summer so I want to make it useful by doing work experience but I can find any around London anywhere! Any ideas where I can find some work experience for dentistry? 😅

    Try a dental lab possibly? GDP wise, I found private dental practices seemed to give more placements than nhs dentists in my local area, so try those? Try to be flexible about dates/ times and take anything you can get - even a day or one afternoon a week sort of thing.

    How exactly are you asking for experience? I tried ringing up and asking if they did placements and how to contact them ( i.e. an email address) and then sent a formal email containing info on why I wanted experience and when I'd likely be able to do it. I also attached a CV and put my phone number on so they could contact me by email or phone.

    Good luck with finding experience but don't panic too much, you have plenty time to find some and they sometimes take A-level students more seriously than GCSE as your that bit older and more sure about studying dentistry

    I have so far tried calling everyone around London and asking weather they do take student for work experience but they all said no!
    I'll try and get their details and send a formal letter and see if they consider me!
    Thank you 😊
