Applying for Dentistry can be stressful itself but not getting into Dental School can be even worse. Spending a vast amount of time preparing and completing your UCAS application but resulting in a lack of Dental offers can be painful, however, this does not have to be the end of your Dental journey!
A dentistry gap year offers an incredible opportunity for students to expand their knowledge, improve their skills, and gain valuable experience before embarking on their dental education journey. Many students choose to volunteer in underserved communities, providing much-needed dental care and education.
Additionally, a gap year before dental school can also involve travelling to different countries, exploring new cultures, and learning about the diverse approaches to dental care worldwide. These experiences can help develop a well-rounded perspective, making you a better healthcare professional in the long run.
There are several options available including reapplying for Dentistry.
