Securing the future dental workforce

Advancing Dental Care Phase II

The Advancing Dental Care: Education and Training Review aims to develop an education and training infrastructure that can respond to the changing needs of patients and services.

Phase II of the Review has considered the recommendations from the first phase of the Review, which concluded with the publication of the Advancing Dental Care Report.

During phase II of Advancing Dental Care, the Review team has conducted further focused research to understand the current workforce; its activity; and the newly qualified workforce’s preferences and aspirations. Through widespread engagement and options analysis, we will explore and develop more flexible training options, that build on best practice. These will be piloted from 2020.

Advancing Dental Care is will play a key role in delivering the commitments regarding the future dental workforce, outlined in the Interim People Plan – developing flexible training models that support recruitment, retention and leadership development.

To ensure our success we will be sharing findings, and seeking feedback from stakeholders: from our learners, dental practitioners, educators, commissioners, patients, experts and professional and regulatory bodies.

We are committed to providing opportunities for you to share your views; to stay informed and get involved to can keep visit our webpage or contact the Advancing Dental Care Team  advancingdentistry@hee.nhs.uk
