Dentistry post in development. Each department provides an advice and treatment service to the local  GDPs, specialists and the other hospital departments. 
The unit is actively involved in teaching and training in all three disciplines. This is mainly at Dental 
Foundation, Specialty Registrar and Post-CCST levels, but there are a number of Specialty Doctors 
working in the unit, and the department has close links with primary care postgraduate training.
