Clinical Dental Technicians


Cohort 3 commenced in July 2013 and will ran until June 2015. HEEKSS are planning to commence Cohort 4 from January 2017.

If you wish to be added to our expressions of interest list for the standalone modules then please complete the below form and submit to us at HEEKSS.

For information - The 3 modules to be completed before  joining the full course are: Infection Control, Impression Taking and Occlusal Registration. It is important to appreciate that all these induction modules are “stand alone” courses for dental technicians and qualify as Scope of Practice courses which can attract certification independently of the main CDT course. However, to be able to progress to the full course students must complete ALL induction modules to the satisfaction of the Deanery assessment team.

Standalone modules - In order to be eligible for acceptance on to the standalone modules,  applicants must either be on the GDC register as a Dental Technician. This need not necessarily be in the UK. For those NOT registered as a Dental Technician with the GDC, you will be responsible for ensuring (and providing evidence) that the country you practice in allows you to undertake extended duties.  Please note that if you are not registered as a Dental Technician, you will not be able to undertake the tasks required in Modules 2 and 3 until you are registered. You can receive the education element but will not be provided with the necessary record of competence before evidence of appropriate registration is provided. You are also required to provide evidence of relevant immunisation before you can proceed.

The next dates schedule for the modules are as follows:

Module 1 - Infection Control - 31st August 2016 - COURSE COMPLETED

Module 2 - Impression Taking - 17th September 2016 - COURSE COMPLETED

Module 3 - Occlusal Registration - 18th September 2016 - COURSE COMPLETED

The above dates is the last time the modules will be run prior to the full course commencing in January 2017.
