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.

Where will you be located?

The location where our FD’s are based varies from year to year but you will be in either one or two of our CDS clinics.
