Dental Foundation Training

 

Sue Baker

Associate Postgraduate Dental Dean

As Associate Postgraduate Dental Dean for primary care Dental Foundation training in Health Education England working across the Yorkshire and Humber region, I oversee the training of all Dental Foundation Trainees on the DFT programme.

I was first involved as a trainer for the Deanery in my NHS practice and have several years’ hands on training experience starting in 1996.  This interest in teaching and mentoring prompted me to progress to be a Training Programme Director in 2010 and now more recently in my role as Associate Dean. 

I realise the importance of a good start to any career and particularly so in dentistry.  The whole HEE YH work hard to promote excellent interactive learning; we have supportive and talented trainers, enthusiastic Training Programme Directors and helpful administrative staff.

The most important person is the Dental Foundation Trainee and even with an excellent scheme it is up to them to grasp this opportunity and really engage and benefit from the training in Yorkshire and Humber.  It is what you put in that gives added value to what you get out.
