What type of work experience did you get? I’m struggling and I need Job specific work experience or volunteering!

Also where did you apply and get into?

I would love with all my heart to be a dental hygienist but need help along the way.

Hi, I’ve just finished my first year at Peninsula Dental School, my experience was 2 year dental nursing FdSc with experience of ortho, community, general and max fax, and a year working in general practice after graduating.
I applied to Plymouth, Portsmouth, Teesside, Brum, UCLAN
It’ll probably be difficult to get experience at the moment as practices are getting back on their feet after covid, but you have to put your self out there, email local practices for shadowing opportunities and also have a look online for into to dentistry courses, webinars and read journal articles for eg from BDJ or dental nursing journal
Also any type of experience/volunteering/shadowing within the health and social care sector would be beneficial
Hope that helped a bit, good luck
