What’s Involved?

A dental nurse`s main role is to assist the dentist in whichever way that they need. Whilst a certain amount of training is preferred by dentists looking for a nurse, it is not absolutely necessary if you are the right person. If you don`t have the necessary qualifications, a lot of dental surgeries will take you on as a trainee dental nurse if they think that you have the right attributes to be a good one with a little technical training.

A Dental Nurse`s job typically involves a range of different responsibilities, including:

  • Updating and looking after patient records
  • Looking after the dental operating equipment
  • Ensuring that equipment and dental instruments are clean and hygienic
  • Making sure that supplies and materials are at hand and available
  • Assisting the dentist at all times, during check-ups and during surgery.

In addition to this, you might be asked to do some reception work, as well as x-rays, photographs and applying varnish to patients` teeth – after special training.

The Attributes of a Dental Nurse

One of the main roles of a dental nurse is to look after (often nervous) patients. A dental nurse must be able to show discretion and be tactful, as well as work well in a team and be happy to take on responsibility.

It is important that you have good communication skills, the ability to multi-task and to be a good time-keeper.

From working as a dental nurse, many people further their career to be a dental hygienist or dental therapist.
