National recruitment to Dental Foundation Training (formerly Vocational Training) was introduced for dental graduates entering DFT in 2012. This is part of an initiative backed by the Department of Health to develop national recruitment to foundation and specialty training for medical and dental students in the UK and is intended to ensure an equitable and transparent recruitment process that minimises disruption to dental students and Educational Supervisors. The recruitment process is led by Shared Services on behalf of Health Education England and COPDEND.
