The Unit will be supported by qualified dental nurses, trainee dental nurses, receptionists and central decontamination sterilising assistants.

''This Dental Training Unit will be the first of its kind in Wales and it will make a significant difference to the quality of our dentistry.  Not only will it provide invaluable training for our future and current dentists it will improve access to dentistry in the area, so that every patient will have access to a dentist.

This is the start of a promising career pathway in an environment where they can gain practical experience and benefit from high-tech operating and learning tools.''
