Ashana Gupta Sarah Marr

Mentor: Dr Barry Cockcroft, Chief Dental Officer

Why ALMP?  Whilst I have a rough idea of the general career pathways in Dentistry, I hope to gain invaluable insight on the benefits of the different career pathways and hear about Dr Cockcroft’s experiences working with the BDA. I would be keen to discuss my elective project with my mentor as well and hear his thoughts. Whilst I lack confidence on clinic at the moment with further practice and advice from my mentor I hope to develop my confidence and skills in my final year.
