Since the advice to 'stay at home' on 23 March 2020, there has been an enforced upsurge in the use of remote services. Clinical constraints within the dental schools have drastically reduced trainee/patient exposure and utilising available tools to increase patient contact is invaluable. Developing robust protocols and frameworks for remote activities is key to ensuring safe, secure and effective learning experiences. In Dundee, we have invested in careful planning to implement online engagement with clinical activity. A collaborative and iterative approach with NHS Tayside and other key stakeholders has resulted in a safe, online, clinical protocol that trainees, trainers and patients can have confidence in. The purpose of this article is to share our experience and to open a dialogue to work synergistically with other institutions to contribute towards a UK-wide remote training strategy.
