Qualify to be a Dental Nurse and embark on a challenging yet rewarding career within dental medicine.

Dental Nurses perform an essential role within a dental surgery. They support the dentist during procedures, maintain hygiene standards, prepare instruments and more.

As a dental nurse you will:

  • Play an essential role within the surgery
  • Be integral to making sure appointments run smoothly
  • Prepare instruments
  • Reassure patients
  • Assist the dentist during procedures
  • Maintain accurate records

Becoming a dental nurse is a career that will allow you to develop in a range of different areas, from supporting in surgery to radiography.

You can also develop your skills further to become a hygienist.

A career in dental nursing is a challenging but rewarding one. Although your role will have some routine elements to it, in practice no two days will be the same.

Your ability to build a rapport with patients and to put them at ease is essential during procedures. Especially if the patient experiences anxiety or the treatment is particularly invasive.

The role is also not for the squeamish. However, if you can get past the drills and other grislier parts of dentistry you'll have a long and fruitful career.

To become a dental nurse you will need the National Level 3 Diploma in Dental Nursing, recognised by the General Dental Council and awarded by the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses (NEBDN).

To qualify you will need to complete a formative workplace assessment including a complete record of experience and a summative assessment. To do this, you'll need a placement, which we will help you get!

We'll match you against a range of opportunities in your area and help you through the interview.
