This year the Dental Society are making it a priority to ensure the welfare of all our students is considered.
There will be regularly arranged confidential welfare days where any student can come and discuss any issues with the Dental Society executive team in the DentSoc Office.
Rest assured, anything discussed will be kept confidential (unless for ethical reasons confidentiality must be broken to help address the issue). This initiative is to compliment the support any students can formally receive by approaching our Student Support Office Team.
