Porth Dental Teaching Unit is a newly refurbished eight-unit training centre and is the first of its kind in Wales.  It is a home to 10 recently qualified dentists, working in fully equipped dental surgeries while completing a two-year Dental Foundation Training Scheme.  It provides patients with comprehensive care in all aspects of NHS dentistry, using some of the most advanced technology available. 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 a real red letter day for dental patients and trainee dentists in Wales.''  Former First Minister Rhodri Morgan

''This Unit will provide our newly qualified dentists with an invaluable opportunity to begin their careers in dentistry. 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.'' Alan Griffiths, Dental Programme Director
