Dental Therapy Foundation Training has been established and successfully running in the East of England since 2019, as part of the Midlands and East Region. Following the de-agregation of East of England and Midlands Regions, the scheme is now entirely within East of England Region. The scheme is designed for newly qualified dental therapists of up to two years post qualification.
The scheme is based centrally at the Deakin Centre on the Addenbrooke’s Hospital site in Cambridge There are 20 study days per year. They are a mix of lecture-style, hands-on, and small group discussion seminars. The study days are hosted by the Training Programme Lead with guest speakers in specialist subject areas relevant to the therapy scope of practice. The training practices are located across the East of England Region. Our Educational supervisors are experienced dentists who have a drive and enthusiasm for teaching and guiding newly qualified dental professionals into the world of general practice.
