Diploma in the Principles and Practice of Dental Nursing




Diploma in Dental Nursing

Train to become a dental nurse on this 12 month diploma programme. A career in dental nursing is an incredibly rewarding role which allows for specialisms, flexibility and growth.  Achieving a dental diploma is a proven route to developing a career in this sector. This qualification covers the current General Dental Council (GDC) learning outcomes and Skills for Health National Occupational Standards.  On completion of this qualification, learners can apply for registration as a dental nurse with the GDC. This diploma is independently funded by the learner or the employer and is not subject to any Government funding or support. It is an alternative option to the Dental Nurse Apprenticeship which also allows individuals to apply for registration with the GDC on completion.

What is Covered?

The qualification focuses on direct chair-side work and support during a range of dental treatments. It encompasses the underpinning ethics, professionalism, teamwork and communication required to work as a dental nurse.

Who is it For?

All those who wish to work as a dental nurse or trainee dental nurse and who wish to obtain a dental nursing qualification leading to GDC registration. Learners should be at least 16 years old. There is no requirement for any existing dental knowledge, but it is the responsibility of the training provider to ensure that the learner has adequate knowledge before entering a placement/workplace.  At Exalt-Training we only provide this qualification to those who are currently working for a dental practice in a trainee role.
