A state-of-the-art dental technology centre is being launched in North London at our Southgate Campus

As part of a multi-million 'makeover' at Barnet and Southgate College, a brand new Centre for Dental Sciences is opening in September 2017 in partnership with The University of Bolton .

What's on offer?

For successful candidates who pass a dexterity test and interview, the new Dental Centre will offer students a 21st Century learning environment with digital classrooms for CAD CAM and 3D printing.

The drive of the programme is to give students substantial practical development using duplicated patient cases and models. Gone are the days of using perfect impressions for students! This will develop critical thinking and problem solving skills for graduates completing the courses. We are determined to improve the quality of new dental technicians to meet the needs of employers.

The new dental technology centre will include resources such as a decontamination room, processing and casting labs, as well as three dedicated specialist laboratories with 60 workstations. All labs will be equipped with the latest industry-standard equipment.


Students will benefit from dedicated learning zones with touch screen boards for interactive learning as well as use of the large conference space for external and internal talks and demonstrations. They will also be appointed their own experienced tutors who work in the industry and are dedicated to passing on the latest techniques and ideas.

Dental Laboratory owners

Make the most of government funding and benefit from the country’s newest and innovative centre of dental technology and excellence.

Did you know the government will substantially help you with the costs of training staff? 

The Trailblazer Higher Apprenticeship for Dental Technology has been approved for funding since March 2015.

The new funding model from the 1st May 2017 has been simplified. The Government will support 90% of the funding for a 10% contribution from employers. This means that employers will be required to pay £600.00 a year for this 3 year programme.

How can you and your trainees get involved?

See the course list below and apply today!

Numbers will be limited, so secure your place now.

We are also very keen to talk to laboratories, dental technicians and supply companies who feel they could support this incredible new centre.
