Becoming a Dental Nurse
Dental Nurses provide chairside support to dentists across the full range of treatment provision. They play a key role in the patient support aspects of the job and have responsibility for infection control and health and safety in the workplace.
To be a dental nurse you will need to have excellent communication skills, a caring nature and be highly organised. Dental Nurses need to be friendly and approachable, reliable, calm, and be flexible enough to respond to unexpected situations as they arise.
NEBDN offer the National Diploma for trainee dental nurses, alongside seven Post-Registration qualifications for dental care professionals who are GDC registered.
