Course description

The Dental Nurse role complements the role of other dental professionals. One of the primary roles is to provide chair side support to dental professionals and deliver a high level of patient care.
Dental Nurses may work in a variety of clinical environments and the Apprenticeship reflects all aspects of clinical responsibilities and duties of a dental nurse’s role and will provide the apprentice with the relevant qualification to apply to the General Dental Council (GDC) for professional registration as a dental nurse.
Dental Nurses are registered professional and work within the standards and scope of practice defined by the GDC Scope of Practice document (Sept 2013)

Suitability - Who should attend?

The End Point Assessment of the Dental Nurse apprenticeship is part of the qualification. The candidate cannot achieve the qualification without being successful in the End Point Assessment, which consists of the following:

• Knowledge Test
• Observation of Practice followed by Question and Answer
• Interview – underpinned by a portfolio

Apprentice employment
