    Erm, I dont know if Im in the right place to say this but anyway..
    I have been rejected from all the courses I applied for this year, therefore have decided to take a gap year.
    I plan to apply for dentistry next year, however, I need to know what kind of work placements gap year students who want to apply for dentistry do. Since I am not qaulified, work at dental surgery will be very limited. How are we supposed to obtain work experience from that field then?
    Anyone else been in this situation before?

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Think outside the box really, if you are very academic, it's quite likely that they will be wanting to match your equally good academic skills with interpersonal skills and your ability to work with people, from a range of backgrounds and a range of ages. Try volunteer work at care homes, or try volunteering for administration at your local dentists, or even anywhere that it stands out that you are interested in looking after people and working with people, which is really important because it shows you will be able to bond with your patients.
