    So I'm applying to study dentistry at uni and I need work experience. I had some arranged for this coming summer (2017) but due to unforeseen circumstances that is no longer happening and I don't know what to do. I've tired contacting local dental surgeries in my area to see if they could offer me a week of work experience but some have said no because it's short notice and some are yet to reply.

    If anyone has any suggestions or can offer me some work experience I'd be so very grateful. Thank you.

    Maybe you could ask if you could do it in the October break? Since summer is too short notice

    How about doing something that is related to dentistry, for example, shadowing a optician, nurse, doctor. Volunteeering at a health care centre. They're all transferable skills and if anything it shows that you were determined to get health care experience whatever it took.
