Dental Foundation Training

Foundation Training in General Dental Practice is mandatory in the UK for all dental graduates from UK schools who wish to practice in the National Health Service under their own contract number. Recent graduates join an approved practice as a salaried assistant with a General Dental Practitioner who has been appointed as a trainer for a period of one year full-time (or up to two years part-time). All Foundation Dentists (FDs) attend a course of 30 study days over one year.
