A dental nurse supports the dentist in all aspects of patients’ dental care.
You may help with reception work and could help any member of the dental team – dentists, clinical dental technicians/technologists, hygienists and therapists – treat patients of all ages.
Some patients will be there for a check-up while others will have more complicated treatment. You’ll need to reassure people and put them at ease, while supporting the team in all aspects of patient care.
Below are some of our best dental nursing students who were recognised for their excellence while undertaking trainee dental nursing duties.
Dental Tutors are proud to have a student who excelled in her chosen career path and continues to amaze us with her dedication. Success stories like this are true inspiration to fellow nurses.
“I strongly believe Jolita deserves this award because, besides being a trainee nurse who has learned her duties and responsibilities so quickly, she is also the strongest team player that I have ever seen.
She supports all of her colleagues, she is very organised and professional. Jolita is polite with patients and able to work with any dentist, whilst always keeping a positive attitude. She has also developed great skills supporting the front desk and worked extra hours when needed. On top of this, Jolita has been a key in improving the practice appearance, including building up our Google reviews for future patients.
I can see a big and fast progression in her dental nurse career.” – Carlos Rodo
