Responsibility for the provision of training places for foundation dentists rests with Health Education England (HEE). HEE advises it has no current plans to increase the number of training places.

HEE aims to ensure there are dental foundation training places for all qualified graduates of English dental schools. HEE advises that in the last two years, all qualified graduates of English dental schools who applied for a training place in England obtained one.
