Our aim in creating this website was to provide valuable information to DCTs (dental core trainees) who are entering hospital posts in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) from dental practice. There is an exceptionally steep learning curve and a large number of medical components to being a DCT. Similarly in many units, DCTs do not provide cover overnight for patients on the wards therefore this website can be used a guide for other health care professionals providing overnight cover such as ENT staff.
