Under the GDC regulations, unqualified dental nurses may only work under supervision as trainees provided they are enrolled on a theoretical training course at an approved training centre. In order to be awarded the qualification, a candidate must complete the Electronic Record of Experience and pass the National Diploma Examination. The Electronic record of experience must be completed to register for the exams.
Exams are held in April/June and November/January. Our next course for the Diploma commences in MAY 2018, Spaces are limited so book yours now. For further information please contact us.

Scope of Practice
Things have changed for the better for dental nurses following the need to now be registered and this has seen the course become very popular. Once qualified and registered the dental nurse can expand their scope of practice by developing additional skills such as taking impressions , suture removal, flouride varnish application etc. There are several other post certification courses which you can do as a nurse to expand your role, these include sedation, oral health education, radiography, implant nursing and orthodontic nursing. Dental nurses can also proceed to train as dental hygienists. The opportunities are now endless and career progression prospects are now very good.'
