Laura King will be among the speakers in the Hygienist & Therapist Symposium at the British Dental Conference & Dentistry Show (BDCDS) 2023, supported by the British Association of Dental Therapists (BADT). She says:“My session will explore Postgraduate Foundation Training Schemes for dental therapists. I’ll consider how additional training can increase clinical confidence and benefit career prospects for many individuals. I will also discuss some of the barriers that dental therapists face whilst seeking jobs or new career opportunities and positions.

“This presentation is based on the findings of my Master of Research Degree and is not representative of the whole dental therapist population. It will, however, offer insight and a comparison into the experiences of dental therapists who have completed Postgraduate Foundation Training Schemes, and those who have not.

“It is my goal that delegates will leave my session with an enhanced understanding about the benefits of further training, skills consolidation, and increased clinical confidence. I also hope colleagues will be more aware of the common barriers that all dental therapists can encounter.”


The British Dental Conference & Dentistry Show 2023 will be held on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 May, NEC Birmingham, co-located with DTS.
