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, providing 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.
Qualifications: The SmileWisdom dental nursing course, leads to the National Examining Board’s National Diploma in Dental Nursing’ (NEBDN) and replaces the ‘National Certificate in Dental Nursing’.
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.
Work: Dental Nurses are now required by law to be registered with the GDC in order to work in England and Wales. Once you have signed up on 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 pass the exams you will become a qualified dental nurse and register yourself with the GDC.
Career pathways: 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 or dental sales. There are also opportunities in teaching and assessment.
