This course will give you the training and an internationally recognised qualification that allows you to work as a Dental Nurse in a variety of settings including private practices, hospitals and community dental clinics.
Dental nurses play a vital role in oral healthcare, offering close support to the dental surgeon in all aspects of patients care. They provide assistance to both the patient and the dentist during clinical procedures and maintain good practice and high quality service in the dental environment. In addition, their duties may include maintaining materials and equipment and also practice management.
The SmileWisdom Level 3 Diploma in Dental Nursing course, leads to the National Examining Board’s National Diploma in Dental Nursing’ (NEBDN) and replaces the ‘National Certificate in Dental Nursing’. Once you have successfully completed our course and passed the exams you become a fully qualified Dental Nurse.
The course follows the competency-based curriculum based on the GDC’s (General Dental Council’s) registration requirements for the dental nurses and the NEBDN syllabus. On completion of the course and successful completion of the exams you will be able to register with the GDC as a Dental Care Professional.
Dental Nurses are required by law to be registered with the GDC in order to work in England and Wales. Once you have enrolled onto our NEBDN Diploma course, you can carry out paid work in a dental practice as a trainee dental nurse. Once you have completed the course and passed the exams you will become a qualified dental nurse and register yourself with the GDC; you will receive your unique GDC registration number – these numbers are awarded to trained dental professionals in England and Wales.
After completing our NEBDN course and qualifying as a Dental Nurse one can train/study further to become a Specialist Dental Nurse. Other pathways can lead to work as a Hygienist, Therapist, Dental Technician, Orthodontic Therapist or progress into dental practice management, treatment co-ordination or dental sales. There are also opportunities in teaching and assessment.
