Welcome to the Directorate of Multiprofessional Dental Education (DMDE)






Welcome to Dentistry

The directorate offers high quality training and education for the whole dental team, right from the very start of your career through to your later years as a dental professional.

The population of the north east benefits from the highest rate of access to NHS dental services in the country: because of this, we are able to offer comprehensive and varied training programmes tailored to the region’s needs.

We operate the majority of our training from a purpose built training and education facility located just off the A1 at Durham. Here you can find a state of the art Clinical Skills Unit with 14 Phantom head units, 2 surgeries and an X-ray room.
