Orthodontics

This programme produces motivated clinician scientists capable of obtaining high clinical standards in an objective manner. The Doctorate in Dental Surgery (DDS) will enable you to develop the ability to design, undertake and apply appropriate research to relevant clinical problems. Applications for a position on this programme as a specialist trainee in orthodontics will be made through the national recruitment process, which is likely to be advertised in the British Dental Journal. We will also accept university-based applications from international applicants, followed by shortlisting and interviews of selected candidates. There are usually eight positions for home students: one each in Taunton, Yeovil, Plymouth, Portsmouth and Exeter, and three opportunities in Bristol/Bath. There is also the opportunity for two overseas students in Bristol/Bath and one overseas student in Bristol/Swindon.
