What is the course?

It’s the National Diploma in Dental Nursing course. Our course is accredited by the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses (NEBDN).

When and where are the lessons? The course is in central London. Classes (lasting two-and-a-half hours) are one day a fortnight.

How much does the course cost? I’m worried I won’t be able to afford it.

Many of our students choose to spread the cost of the course by paying in easy-to-manage instalments with our Repayment Scheme.

​With the Repayment Scheme, students must first of all make an initial payment of £400 upon sign-up.

Then they spread the cost of the £1,599 course fee by paying in 8 x easily-manageable instalments of about £200**.

They say this helps them to meet the payments much more easily.

Or you can pay a one-off course fee of £1,599. (An overall saving of £400 compared with the Repayment Scheme.)

This is a brilliant investment in your future.

Can I really earn money while I learn?

Yes. Sign up to the course and you’ll immediately be eligible to work inside any dental surgery in the UK.

While Lotus Dental School students are training, they ALL work – and get paid – as trainee Dental Nurses. (Students work in Dental Practices as part of the course.)

Dental Nurses starting out in NHS and private Dental Practices can earn around £16,500 a year, according to the government’s National Careers Service (NCS).

When they qualify, they earn more money. Qualified Dental Nurses can earn from £19,000-£22,000 a year, according to the NCS (with the potential to go on and earn up to £28,000 a year as a Team Leader or Dental Nurse Specialist – and even more as a Practice Manager).*

IMPORTANT: All these figures come from the UK government’s National Careers Service. In our experience, London salaries are often higher.

There are other Dental Nursing course providers in London. Why should I choose Lotus Dental School?

Lotus Dental School has a 100% pass rate (based on examinations taken up to and including April 2015).

Our course is led by star teachers.

Our students says this course changed their lives.

What do your students say about your course?

Iryna Komar-Feltham, a trainee Dental Nurse at Finchley Dental, says: “Having done a lot of research online for the best course for Dental Nursing, I found out that there are quite a number of course providers out there. How do you choose the best one when value for money is your main ground? Well for me it was easy. After having spoken to few course representatives, I was most impressed with Kelly.

“The reason was that, in comparison with others where I felt that they were just selling me the course, she was different – she was really paying attention to what I wanted to know and gave me some great advice even though she didn’t know whether I was going to take her course yet. Following her advice resulted in me finding the job before even having started the course. That was what made me choose Kelly and Lotus Dental as my choice of course for Dental Nursing.

“Once on the course, I continued finding myself in the good hands of Kelly. She was very helpful and supportive; I also saw all the efforts from her side to support other girls from our class who were still looking for jobs.

“The lovely tutor is very knowledgeable and is always there to help and support with any questions we have in and out the class hours. The topics are compressed into presentations that combine pictures, examples and main bullets which later are great for revision.”
