Fluoride Varnish Application
NEBDN’s new qualification in Fluoride Varnish Application provides dental nurses with an educational experience in knowledge, critical understanding, intellectual skills, practical skills and personal attitude. This will enable them to provide effective fluoride varnish application within a community-based programme and/or on prescription from a dentist or as part of a structured dental health programme.
NEBDN’s Certificate in Fluoride Varnish Application is a versatile qualification that can be undertaken either in conjunction with the NEBDN Certificate in Oral Health Education, or, as a standalone qualification. Should a registered dental nurse wish to combine the two, please also refer to the NEBDN Certificate in Oral Health Education.
