Cambridgeshire & Peterborough DFT Scheme was first established in the year 2000. Study days are generally held at the Deakin Centre on the Addenbrooke’s site in Cambridge. Foundation Dentists may note that on occasions, there will be clinical skills sessions held in Kettering.
Our Training Practices are widespread, located primarily in Cambridgeshire, and there are a minority of practices located in the adjoining counties of Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Essex. All our Education Supervisors are very experienced dentists. You will find them to be passionate about Foundation Training, and so devoting a great deal of their time to teaching their new colleagues, something they find thoroughly rewarding. Their Practices provide for rich learning opportunities to help build much needed clinical experience in all the core disciplines. It will be encouraged that FDs not only learn from treating patients, but also learn from the wider team, their peers, colleagues, and study day speakers.
Uday Patel is your Training Programme Director in post since June 2000. He is a GDP in his own Practice in Bedfordshire since 1991 and lives in the city of Cambridge. Uday has been a past Trainer on the Bedford Scheme. His duty will be to guide the Schemes FDs, encouraging satisfactory completion of the training year. Jana Barnard is the Dental Administrator based at the Deakin Centre, whose role it is to support the study days sessions that FDs participate in. The Scheme's strength is the network of people involved; Education Supervisors and their teams, the Training Programme Director, the Health Education England team including the Administrators. Together we are there to guide you, support you and be a source of your professional wisdom. Welcome to general dental practice. We wish you a successful start to new exciting career.
