Foundation Dentists

FGDP(UK) North West has a long and rewarding relationship with Foundation Dentist groups in Manchester and the North West.

Every year we are delighted to award the best case presentation prize to the young dentist whose work is judged as satisfying the highest standards based on a set of criteria.

Our next award will be presented in June 2019 when we'll have the pleasure of seeing this year's Foundation Dentists as they complete their training.



Many young dentists choose to further their careers by taking the MJDF.

The MJDF (Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties) is the only examination of its type which tests you on the skills and knowledge you actually use in dental practice. Taking the exam demonstrates to others that you are serious about your career, and that you have the ability to work at a level higher than your BDS qualification. It builds upon the knowledge gained in your undergraduate studies and foundation training, while indicating that your expertise has expanded and kept pace with developments in dentistry which have occurred since graduation.
