Dental Therapist Recruitment


The Dental Therapist Foundation Training Scheme (DTFT) is an exciting opportunity designed to ease the journey of newly qualified dental therapists from undergraduate studies to working successfully in a general dental practice environment.

Dental Therapist Foundation Trainees will be employed by an approved NHS training practice within Thames Valley & Wessex region for 3 days a week. The scheme features at least 13 day-release study days, several of which will be hands-on.

Information and details of the Dental Therapy application process can be found here: Therapist Information & Application Process 2021-2022

The Scheme start date is 1st September 2021. All Applicants must be graduated and must be GDC Registered. Due to the current pandemic the start date for the Therapist Scheme for 2021-2022 will be continually reviewed and consideration will be given to two intakes if this is felt necessary. We would therefore recommend that you continue to apply for the scheme even if you do not have an exact finish date yet.
