Dental Mentors UK is a new web-based initiative to promote mentoring for all dental professionals living and working in the UK. By supporting dental professionals who are mentors to be the best they can be and by making it easy for those seeking a mentor, Dental Mentors UK is pushing forward excellence and accessibility of mentoring.

Who is behind Dental Mentors UK?

Dental Mentors UK was developed by two senior dental professionals: Dr Janine Brooks MBE and Dr Jane Davies-Slowik MBE. Jane and Janine are experienced dentists and both have worked in dentistry for more than 30 years.
