National Paediatric Dentistry Training Recruitment 2019

Recruitment to Paediatric Dentistry training posts in the UK is through a national selection process led by Health Education England’s East Midlands local office (Paediatric Dentisry posts in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be included). The revised recruitment and selection processes will ensure standardisation in selection and values based recruitment in line with other national training programmes.

Applicants can apply to two vacancy types ST1 and ST4. The level of post will depend on how many years of previous training an applicant has previously undertaken. In round 1 we are recruiting to ST1 and ST4 levels..

Applications and offers will be made through the national recruitment system Oriel. This system enables the national coordination of the application and offer processes and will allow applicants to accept only one post. Please see the national recruitment timeline below applications will need to be made via

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend the national selection centre held on Thursday 16th May 2019. Applicants will be asked to preference all the posts in which they are interested. Offers will be made in rank order by performance at the selection centre. Once offers have been made the system will also allow upgrades so that you can accept a higher preference post if that becomes available.

Further information will be contained in the applicant guide and persons specifications for each vacancy. This information is available below.
