Dental Core Training (DCT) is the new name for what used to be SHO and then DF2! In essence it is a second year of training post foundation that is designed to equip recently qualified dentists with the additional skills to tackle more complex cases particularly those that require some Minor Oral Surgery. Dental Core Training is part of the HEKSS School of Intermediate and Higher Specialty Training in Dentistry led by Mr Graham Gilmour a Consultant in Restorative Dentistry and Associate Dental Dean in HEKSS.

DCTs will be working in a variety of arenas during this training year.
