If you are reapplying to Dentistry in the UK, you’ve come to the right place!

Dental Mentor has the UK’s largest year-round mentoring programme. We bring support and specialist advice to reapplying students to help make sure you are successful the second time round.

You’ll begin Reapplication Summer School with a 1-1 meeting with a Dentsist and dental school application expert. This meeting will allow us to identify exactly why you didn’t get into medical school the first time to help you avoid making the same mistakes on your reapplication. 

In summer 2022, we hosted over 900 students across different sites in London and Scotland, with over 90% of them receiving at least one offer to study Dentistry. This is incredible, as on average only 15% of all Dental applicants are successful at securing an offer from British Universities.

Summer School Student

Now Medic Mentor Scholar and Medical Student at University College London.


“I chose Medic Mentor’s Summer School because I felt like it was the best allencompassing package for me; not only to help manage the pressures of the application process, but also to really immerse myself in the Medic Mentor family to then open new opportunities for me even beyond the application process.

The support that we get is amazing. The networking and community really make a difference.

My first year of Medical School has been the best year of my life so far.”


Summer School Student

Now Medic Mentor Scholar and Medical Student at University of Cambridge.

“Rather than treating another person applying to Medicine as a competitor, Medic Mentor really does help create a sense of community. You learn from one another which has really helped me.

There’s a community that I can always come back to that will always put a smile on my face. Medic Mentor transformed me from a clueless student into a student who is now at Medical school.”
