EU graduates and Dental Foundation Training

Most newly qualified dental graduates in the UK undertake a year of Foundation Training after graduation. These paid training posts are in selected dental practices under the auspices of the postgraduate dental deanery for that region of the UK.  At the end of the year, the dentist is able to apply for a performer number which enables them to practice as an NHS dentist.

Entry to DF Training is highly competitive and applicants may need to apply more than once to obtain a post.

What if I don't have DF training?

Without DF training and a performer number, you can only work in private dentistry.  Another method to obtain a Performer Number is via the Performers List Validation by Experience (PLVE) pathway. You can learn more here.
