Dental Professional Training


As a national specialty centre for dentistry, we train dental specialists, radiographers, oral hygiene therapists, dental technicians and dental surgery assistants in collaboration with NUS Faculty of Dentistry, Singapore Institute of Technology and Institute of Technical Education. The Centre has trained many cohorts of dental specialists who now work in both public and private settings, and is also responsible for continuing dental education for dentists and dental specialists alike.



We offer an Undergraduate Elective Programme to give dental undergraduates on term vacations the opportunity to observe alongside dental officers and specialists to learn how theory is applied in clinical practice and patient care, as well as exposure to the Dental Imaging Unit, 3D Planning and Simulation Unit and Dental Laboratory to gain a well-rounded understanding of how dentistry is delivered to patients. We also support NUS Faculty of Dentistry's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme, which aims to promote and develop research interest among dentistry undergraduates.

In addition, NDCS collaborates with NUS Faculty of Dentistry to deliver the Master of Dental Surgery residency training programmes in Endodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics, Periodontology, Prosthodontics, and Paediatric Dentistry.


Quality dentistry is achieved through teamwork when all members of the healthcare team contribute their expertise and work together as a team. Besides professional training for dentists, the Centre also conducts training programmes for support members of the oral healthcare team. We partner the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) to for the NITEC in Dental Assisting and NITEC in Dental Technology, as well as Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) for Diagnostic Radiography Student Clinical Attachments.
