A focus on ongoing training and clinical excellence is an important part of our culture here at National Dental Care Group - and is also a key motivator for dentists and staff at all levels.
As part of our commitment to helping team members upskill and achieve their career goals, we’ve launched the NDC Academy - our exclusive in-house training program that enables providers and practice staff to develop their skills and, in some cases, earn valuable promotions as a result.
If you’re interested in how the NDC Academy is supporting our team members to excel in their fields, read on to discover more about our tailored training program.
A full range of specialities
The NDC Academy offers a comprehensive range of clinical courses and skills development opportunities across a broad spectrum of areas - from digital dentistry to endodontics, implants to Invisalign, you’ll find courses and training on all areas of dentistry.
Through our tailored training programs, National Dental Care team members are able to upskill in their chosen field, as well as explore new treatments and practices in order to advance their knowledge in specialist areas of interest.
The ability to learn new skills and develop capabilities in different specialties provides the opportunity to move into new fields of dentistry and expand on your existing treatment offering.
Available and accessible to all
All National Dental Care dental professionals and practice staff have exclusive in-house access to the NDC Academy platform, enabling every team member to take advantage of professional training and skills development opportunities.
What’s more, the courses offered through the Academy are designed to suit a wide range of skill levels, from beginners to more advanced dental practitioners. This inclusive approach means that everyone can benefit from courses and programs designed to support ongoing learning and upskilling.
“Both DB Dental and National Dental Care have been really supportive of my training and development throughout my time with them. This has included being very accommodating for aspects like taking time off for education (for example, when I was completing my Masters a few years ago, I frequently had to fly back to the UK), as well as supplying specialist equipment to support my training, and paying for courses such as an Invisalign program”.

Supporting you to excel
In order to provide our team members with the skills and knowledge they need to achieve their career goals, the NDC Academy online training and development platform offers:
- Mentoring models that support career pathways and succession planning.
- Professional training courses at significantly discounted prices (or potential reimbursement), providing a beneficial way to maintain your CPD requirements.
- Training programs for both associate dentists and lead practitioners, as well as specialty programs for practice managers and other practice staff.
- A national network, allowing opportunities for provider and staff mobility.
In addition to working closely with external organisers to offer discounted training courses, we also host our own National Dental Care and DB Dental workshops, as well as providing courses from some of our very own highly-skilled dental specialists, such as Dr Tom Giblin.
