Celebrating Dental Nurses

The 22 November marks National Dental Nurse Day – a day to thank and celebrate the important role of dental nurses. Dental nurses are critical in delivering the best patient care and as part of a well-running dental practice. Dental Nurses Day was first established in 2017 by the Society of British Dental Nurses to celebrate the first examination of UK dental nurses in 1943.

At Smilewisdom we know how valuable dental nurses are and have written this letter to all dental nurses and all trainees in appreciation of the important work you do.
