Welcome message from the Midlands Postgraduate Dental Dean – Mike Foster

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the Midlands’ School of Dentistry site.

The Midlands, as you can see from the map, is a large region covering 12 of the 48 counties in England spread over an area which makes up a fifth of the total land mass of the country – over 11,300 square miles out of 50,300. So, the Midlands covers many thousands of dental registrants across all different professional groups. This Sharepoint site has been developed as a single point of contact for all the elements of postgraduate dental training across the Midlands to enable you to find out everything you need to know about postgraduate dental training.



The Midlands’ School of Dentistry covers the following areas:

  • Dental Foundation Training
  • Dental Therapist Foundation Training
  • Dental Core Training
  • Dental Speciality Training
  • Dental Workforce Development
  • Dental Leadership Fellows


The School of Dentistry is part of the wider Workforce, Training and Education (WT&E) division of the Midlands Region.  ​​​The site is designed to include information for everyone from the newest graduate up to an experienced practitioner. We hope you find everything you need on the site but let us know if you would like us to include anything else via the feedback form below.

Best wishes,

Mike Foster
