What is dctWatch
Here is part of it:-
Complete a dental degree in order to obtain a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS).
You could choose to work as a private dentist doing general dentistry at this point. During your final year of dental school you would have chosen to apply for a dental foundation training (DFT) year. This is a national recruitment process and is competitive, especially to get your preferred location.
Complete the DFT year to gain an NHS performer number.
You can now treat patients under the National Health Service (NHS) as well as privately. You also need this performer number to apply for Dental Core Training (DCT)
Apply for DCT during your DFT.
This is another national recruitment process
A Dental Core Trainee has to have completed DFT. In year 1 and 2 of DCT you cover a range of specialties. Year 3 is usually in a specific field.
Spend 2-3 years in DCT within a hospital and apply for a specialist training post which is extremely competitive
