Dental Nurse Jobs

Medical Recruitment Agency for Dental Nursing

We are a specialist Medical Recruitment Agency supplying qualified and experienced Dental Nurses to NHS and other Private Healthcare organisations on long or short term contracts.

All Dental Nurses must be registered with the General Dental Council to provide Dental Care. Dental Nurses MUST have an appropriate qualification to register with the General Dental Council. Such as; the National Vocational Qualification, (NVQ) Level 3 in Dental Nursing or the National Certificate in Dental Nursing Diploma.

Once qualified and registered, Dental Nurses can provide chairside assistance to the Dental Practitioners Team as well as duties such as sterilising instruments, mixing filling and impression materials and some administrative duties.

Qualified Dental Nurses may also undertake further training to enable them to provide other services such as; oral hygiene, take radiographs and assist with general anaesthetic and sedation of patients.

Trainee Dental Nurses can work in practice without a qualification, but they MUST be enrolled on an appropriate course. More information is available from the British Association of Dental Nurses or the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses.
