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.

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.''

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.''
