Dental Nurse Learner / Apprenticeship Overview
The role of a Dental Nurse compliments the role of the Dentist and other dental professionals. Providing chair side support to dental professionals and delivering a high level of patient care is a key part of the Dental Nurses role.
Dental Nurses can work in a variety of different clinical environments and the Dental Nurse Apprenticeship covers all aspects of the clinical responsibilities required. The apprentice will be trained to gain the relevant qualification to apply to the General Dental Council (GDC) for professional registration as a dental nurse.
Dental Nurses are registered as professionals and have to work within the standards defined by the GDC Scope of Practice document.
