NI dental work experience

I’ve been asked by a contact whether I can advise on the following:
“I have a friend who’s son is mad keen to get into dentistry school. He just missed out on a place in Uni this year – they’ve suggested he take a year out and reapply next year, suggesting that he gets any relevant experience he can in his ‘gap’ year.
Have you any contacts in NI in good practices / dental labs / other (?) that might be able to offer shadowing or other experience?”
Any takers/advice out there?
