Each year is assigned a “Curriculum Year Lead” and for first year, you’re lucky to have one of the most enthusiastic and friendly staff members’ at the Leeds Dental Institute!
We would like to introduce you to your Year Lead, Mr Stuart Boomer!
"Congratulations, you have made it to the University of Leeds to begin your dental studies and a future career within the dental team. I know well the emotions you may be going through at the moment, a mixture of both excitement and uncertainty as both studying for and working in the dental professions is both challenging and extremely rewarding. I look forward to welcoming you in person shortly and working with you all both during this your first year on the coarse and throughout the years to come. Please also remember that going to university is more than just about your dental studies, you will have the opportunity to engage in the social side of the university including the varied clubs and societies available. You will make new friends and form new relationships which will last a lifetime. I am reminded of the words which a friend of my father told me when I left for university, he told me the friends I would make at university would be my friends for a lifetime. He spoke with some experience as he met my father at college, in fact he is still a regular visitor at my dad's house for Sunday lunch some 58 years after studying together. They both enjoy recollecting their time as students with great fondness which is what all the staff at Leeds hope you will also be able to do. Until we meet in person, best wishes
