I want to practise Dentistry in
An Elective with a Difference
Studying and practicing dentistry demands extraordinary care, attention and experience. Experience not only with a large number of patients, but also within a broad range of clinical settings where conditions and circumstances greatly vary.
But in order to get relevant practical experience that satisfies your course requirements, you’ll have to commit valuable time and energy to research and planning. Add to that the logistical burden of organising hospital placements and living arrangements overseas, and you’ve quickly got a cumbersome project on your hands.
So, let us do the legwork.
Our highly structured and tailored placement opportunities guarantee you’ll get precisely the right experience and skills needed to get ahead of the game. Treating rare and late-stage conditions in a tropical country halfway across the world is an opportunity no aspiring dentist should pass up.
Acquire indispensable experience
We’ve worked diligently to forge strong relationships with the overseas institutions we work with. During your placement you’ll be able to: -
- Deepen your understanding of dental conditions — diagnose and treat rare cases that you won’t see in the UK.
- Fine-tune fundamental skills — lack of modern dentistry equipment means going back to basics.
- Treat late-stage conditions — patients tend to present late as a result of high costs and distance to healthcare institutions.
- Take advantage of expert knowledge — Our placements are diligently supervised by seasoned field professionals.
- Take advantage of exclusivity — Student numbers are tightly controlled to ensure you get the support required to nourish your skills.
Leave the logistics to us
The effort required to successfully organise an overseas dentistry placement is substantial. That’s why our ongoing mission is to manage everything from a to z so you don’t have to.

My hospital placement was split between two sites; a small regional dental clinic and then a dental unit at the main regional hospital.

We met our supervisors at the orientation, so we knew who we would be working with, which was lovely.
