What is a Trainee Dental Nurse or Dental Assistant?
Once you enrol to an accredited dental nurse course, you will be required to complete theory and practical assignments before you can take the dental nurses examination.
Trainees start by shadowing qualified dental nurses and observing the wide variety of treatments that are carried out on a daily basis at the practice. It allows them to become familiar with the running of the surgery and see how a nurse works alongside a clinician.
We will assist and guide all our students in finding a trainee placement / dental nurse job from the start of the course through our dental clinic network in the UK. Most of our students get a placement within 2 months of the course.
All dental staff are required to be vaccinated against Hepatitis B.
Trainees usually start with the national minimum wage or an apprentice wage.
The average salary for trainee dental nurse jobs is £23,480, depending on experience (Totaljobs salary checker).
