Vocational Trainee

Vocational training in general dental practice is primarily aimed at the new dental graduate to provide the initial stage of general professional training and education. The Vocational Trainee (also known as Vocational Dental Practitioner) is encouraged to develop and expand the clinical and personal skills learned as an undergraduate during their vocational training year. New graduates have the opportunity during this year to consider their future – whether a career in general dental practice, the community dental service, or specialisation within dental practice or the hospital service.
