Finding that dream trainee dental nurse job…

  1. Don’t wait for the opportunity to come to you….

Don’t wait for practice to advertise a role, why not email them or print an post/hand deliver your CV and cover letter to dental practices in your area? Although they may not have advertised a vacancy they may have one becoming available shortly and so by expressing your interest they may invite you for a meeting and if offered a role you haven’t got any other candidates to compete with and your proactive attitude will likely be commended.  This method also benefits the practice by saving them valuable time and advertising fees.


  1. Keep your finger on the pulse

Websites like Indeed, Gumtree, Reed,  Totaljobs, Monster etc have a wealth of posts from dental practices looking for trainee dental nurses.
