Royal Army Dental Corps

The Royal Army Dental Corps has taken care of the Army’s dental health for nearly a century and continues to provide high-quality dental care to the Army both in barracks and on operations. Wherever in the world the Army operates, you will find the Dental Officers and Dental Nurses of the RADC.

Our role

The RADC has developed into a force that provides the highest standards of clinical care to the Army in peacetime and on operations.
The Army is supported on operations by uniformed dental teams that are trained to the required military standards to work alongside their colleagues. It provides and maintains a high level of dental fitness, reducing the number of dental problems experienced by soldiers on the front line.



The Army recruits qualified dentists and dental nurses as well as dental students and unqualified applicants wishing to train as dental nurses. The RADC has both Regular (full time) and Reserve (part time) elements, so whatever your level of commitment, a career in the Royal Army Dental Corps could be for you.


AMS Facebook page

The RADC is part of the Army Medical Services, and the link to the AMS Facebook Page is found under Join the Corps on the right hand side. The facebook page contains lots of information about careers in the AMS, and you can also ask serving Officers and Soldiers about Regular and Reserve careers in the RADC. You can also search for ‘Army Medical Services’ on Twitter.
