Job Description

As an Apprentice Dental Nurse, you will be assisting with all clinical aspects within the surgery and providing patients with a high level of care, so you need to be unflappable under pressure and able to put people at ease.

Responsibilities

You will receive ongoing support, development and training to equip you with the skills and knowledge required for a successful dental nursing career.

Your daily activities could include:

  • Sterilising instruments
  • Updating patient records
  • Maintaining equipment
  • Preparing instruments and materials for various treatments
  • Being responsible for infection control in the dental surgery

During your apprenticeship, you'll develop the skills required to support patients and dental staff in providing safe and effective treatment, from simple check-ups to advanced specialist treatments.

There is something else to smile about, upon successful completion of this apprenticeship, you will have gained a City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Dental Nursing that is recognised by the General Dental Council.

Future Prospects

Possibility to become a full-time employee on completion of apprenticeship.

Reality Check

We advise candidates to check the location of the setting before applying.

For dental nursing, it is a requirement to have a Hepatitis B injection.

Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that's part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).
