Being a dental nurse is not a solo profession, you will need good people skills not only to interact with the patients but with the dental practice team as a whole.
Calm and Collected
Ok so imagine a worst-case scenario where the patient passes out from fear, it’s important you don’t lose your cool, staying calm to assess the best way to assist the dentist in any unforeseen scenarios.
Clean and Tidy
Have you seen the amount of stuff and equipment that’s knocking about in a dental practice?! Keeping track of where everything is and making sure it’s back in its place after treatment is essential to the smooth running of the practice. Likewise, for keeping on top of items that are running low that may be needed for upcoming treatments. Being neat and tidy will make your job easier!
