Foundation Dentist Training
We have a long tradition of providing opportunities for Foundation Dental Practitioners (FD’s). We offer opportunities for our FD’s to grow in confidence and competence in a caring environment where learning is valued and skills nurtured and developed. CDS offers high quality facilities, a diverse range of patients and treatments and a committed training environment. All our trainers are experienced with the majority holding a teaching qualification.
