  • Overview of your dental career options
  • Routes in to each career pathway
  • Case studies from experienced practitioners
  • Patient demographics and the future of dentistry
  • How changing patient demographics may affect your career choices.


Do I need to book?

No, there's no need to book, just arrive on time. The lecture is open to both members and non-members. As lectures for the academic year are booked in, they will be added to the timetable below.


Further help

Our Career ​​Guide is the supporting material for this lecture. It includes useful advice from experienced dentists who give their opinions on a range of careers, a detailed overview on different career paths, plus tips for succeeding in your chosen career. Copies of the new guide are posted out to fourth year (BDS4) student members every autumn.
