    About the Course

    Achieve your NEBDN Certificate in Dental Implant Nursing with SmileWisdom. Our dental nursing courses are accredited by the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses (NEBDN). Our students have an outstanding record of achievement in passing the examinations.

    Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
    Implant Dentistry is a highly advanced, specialised dental skill which is now a widely available treatment across the UK and overseas. It combines surgical skills with restorative expertise to help rebuild the dentition. Some examples of damage could be due to trauma, caries or malignancy. These cases require meticulous planning and exacting standards to ensure an optimum result for each patient.

    The SmileWisdom accredited course is suitable for qualified dental nurses who would like to gain valuable knowledge in order to assist the specialist in the field of dental Implantology.

    Record of Competence

    You are required to complete a work-based Record of Competence (RoC). There are four sections to the RoC:

    • Practical Competence Assessment Sheets (PCAS)
    • Case studies
    • Directly Observed Clinical Skills (DOCS) Assessments
    • Supplementary outcomes


    This is a 90-minute written examination composed of two sections:

    • Part A – 45 multiple choice questions (MCQ)
    • Part B – 30 extended matching questions (EMQ)

    Examinations are held twice a year in March and September.

    Award of qualification
