As a Dental Nurse you have an essential role in our team providing key support to the dental practice in multiple areas; the selection, preparation and maintenance of instruments and equipment, selection and preparation of filling and impression materials, casting models on which dentures or appliances are constructed, preparing the surgery for the delivery of treatment, managing paper and computerised dental records, order and maintain stocks of materials. You will also be called upon to assist in a range of non clinical duties.
Once experienced, our highly trained Dental Nurses often work unsupervised and often mentor their less experienced colleagues, passing on their skills and knowledge. Progression is to Practice or Regional Managers responsible for coordinating the team within a dental practice or a group of dental practices. There’s a small number of opportunities to work on bases overseas or to go on operations or exercises to provide care and treatment for our troops in the field. This could mean working in tented accommodation for anything from a few days to a few months – but you will be provided with the facilities, equipment and training you need.
