Dentistry place demand rises 122%

Seven students are competing for each place at a Devon dental school amid a large rise in the number of people wanting to become a dentist.

The Peninsula Dental School, which opened in 2006, had 464 applications for 64 places this year.

Applications for the four-year graduate entry course rose by 122% last year.

The school, which runs dental training centres in Plymouth and Exeter, put the rise down to a "first class and innovative dental course".
