    Your competitors will be. Its aling to study and what you have learned.
    thing you could think of about why, how and .where. It is comprehensive, so take the truble to read it and be thankful someone has taken the trouble to write it all up.

    All the institutions in the UK want to know that you have an understanding of what it means to be a dentist. You need at least a couple of weeks somewhere, preferably in different settings (NHS, private, hospital, lab). You should be thinking about how well you would fit in as the dentist, what makes their job difficult, what are they thinking, how the patient feels, why you don't want to be a hygienist or nurse, how you think differently at the end of your work experience than at the start.
    Ask lots of questions. Be keen. Get there on time. Don't leave early (unless you get the impression that the dentist REALLY doesn't want you there). Spend time shadowing the nurse and hygienist. Make a round of tea. Make yourself useful. Think about how you would improve the population's oral health without spending any money.

    Good luck!
