Applying to Vocational Training

Dental VT is generally undertaken in the year following graduation from dental school and obtaining a primary dental degree.

VT gives the newly qualified professional the opportunity to obtain a wide experience of dentistry in a general practice setting before considering their future career, further study or specialist training.

VT comprises 12 months of supervised clinical experience in an approved training practice, supplemented by an educational programme of tutorials and study days, and rigorously assessed for the purposes of awarding Satisfactory Completion, which is a requirement for dentists who wish to practice independently in GDS in Scotland.
