Hi everyone! I'm really struggling with work experience and can't find literally anywhere to go, my school said they won't help us and no where will actually give me a chance and I feel like I've honestly called up every dentist in Manchester. Anyone who does dentistry in Manchester, (UoM or anywhere else) where did you go and what did you do for work experience?

Please do let me know!! I'll be really grateful

Hi, I am a current medical applicant in Scotland, but I know how difficult can be to get health related work experience while at school. I have just been looking around online for potential places where you could get Dentistry work experience in Manchester, found a few hospital trusts, while they don't explicitly mention Dentistry, when you email them you tell them which departments you would like to go to as dentistry when searched in their website is a hospital based service. They have dentistry in some hospitals as part of the trust. Worth emailing to find out, I am not sure how your age will affect potential placements.

https://www.medify.co.uk/experiences-map/search

I would use this map and fill in your address, it will give you nearby hospitals, etc that do work experience with links or that you might then have to look into not specifically for dentistry- but might be able to see if they offer dentistry experience.

Medical portal advice/ guidance- may be helpful.

Just something to look into, it might be able to guide you to something useful.

https://www.pat.nhs.uk/education-and...experience.htm

This is the trust to email, follow instructions on screen- letting them know that, e.g. Dentistry, Orthodontics, etc is the area you want to be in.

https://www.penninecare.nhs.uk/workexperience

While it almost seems the same as the previous link- name- I think the previous one is hospital experience while this may be more community based. Again something to look into as they have dental services (when you look at your services) and this page also says: More information-

We work closely with the Greater Manchester NHS Careers and Engagement Hub, who can provide information about work experience placements at lots of different NHS trusts across Greater Manchester. You can contact the team at [email protected].

It might also be a good idea to contact local dental practices in some way- email with who you are, a bit about yourself, achievements,etc and that you hope to study dentistry and would love the opportunity to get some dental work experience if possible. I had a friend who did this with medicine and while some people say no or that they don't do work experience, she managed to get a few placements by sending emails like this. Definitely worth a try, looking up dentists and contacting them- even if only one says yes, you never know.

I hope this helps, this is what I could find through a brief search- good idea to look at NHS hospital trusts,etc work experience application as most probably have dentistry in their hospitals. It is worth contacting them to find out if you could get dentistry work experience through them.
