As a new Dental Nurse student, you will be assigned an experienced tutor from the day you start your NEBDN Diploma In Dental Nursing with SmileWisdom Academy of Dentistry and Dental Nursing. Your tutor will coach and teach you everything you will need know to become a professional GDC qualified dental nurse.
After a few weeks and as part of your course, you will need to find a job in a dental practice. This will give you hands-on experience, and in-practice training to perform the responsibilities of a dental nurse. Whilst working as a student dental nurse you will complete your eRoE (e Record of Experience). If your job is part-time you will have to work at least 16 hours per week.
To help you identify and successfully obtain a job, SmileWisdom has a unique dental nurse job board. Here you can find trainee/student and qualified dental nurse positions. We work with many of the large and well known dental groups such as Bupa Dental and Portman Dental Care.
To apply for a trainee position you will have a CV. The SmileWisdom team will help you tailor and perfect your CV. We will edit the format and make sure you include all the relevant information.
The SmileWisdom Head of Recruitment will send you regular new trainee jobs to apply for.
Once you have submitted your CV, the dental practice normally takes 3-5 working days to contact you and arrange an interview.
You will need to research the practice on Google before attending your interview.
You will also need to show initiative and follow-up your application if you have not heard from the practice after one week.
