Dentistry Summer School

About our Dentistry Summer School

Our Dentistry Summer School is designed to give Year 11 and 12 students an insight into life within the dental team, and the science behind dentistry.

Taking place on Monday evenings for six weeks, participants will take part in dental masterclasses, hear from our students about their experiences studying dentistry, and learn more about the process of applying to Dental School.

All of our Dentistry Summer School sessions will take place online via Zoom.
