‘My Dental Nurse course changed my life’

What’s happening in our world?
Illegal tooth whitening is still rife

A poll carried out by the Oral Health Foundation has revealed that thousands of Brits have admitted to having their teeth whitened by illegal, untrained providers.

Dr Nigel Carter OBE, CEO of the Oral Health Foundation said: ‘When done incorrectly, tooth whitening can lead to severe chemical burns and the possibility of permanent scarring, tooth loss and in extreme cases affect the ability to eat and even breath.’

Since 2011, tooth whitening has been considered the practice of dentistry, deeming it illegal for anyone other than a qualified, sufficiently trained, and registered dental professional to carry it out.

Although dental nurses are not allowed to administer tooth whitening treatment, but they can assist in the creation of dental trays for home whitening and also spread the message and build awareness among the public about who they should turn to for professional treatment.

How to get a trainee dental nursing job

Becoming a dental nurse will set you on the path of a wonderful career with lots of opportunities to progress within your role, work at different practices, and give something back to your community. It’s a fabulous journey, and one that I have enjoyed for many reasons (we’ll talk about those in a later newsletter)!

Once you have taken the decision to become a dental nurse, how on earth do you go about getting a job? Well, first things first you need to get the right training firmly under your belt. Enrol yourself on a NEBDN Diploma in Dental Nursing course with an approved provider. If you’re not sure whether they are legitimate or not, simply check to see if they are listed here: If not, I suggest very swiftly averting your attentions to a provider who is on that list!

My top tip is to be very wary of any college that promises you a job at the end of your training, this is false advertising and I often find that these establishments are simply after your money; the only person who can guarantee you a job is a dental practice owner. At Lotus Dental Education, we have a good network of dental practices that advertise vacancies exclusively for our students, so although we cannot guarantee you a job, we do promise to bring lots of opportunities your way. However, the rest is down to you…

Here’s what you need to have in place 

Update your CV! As obvious as this sounds, many people forget to do this and then panic and rush it to apply for a job. Spend some quality time on this, it’s the first thing a potential new employer is going to see about you and it’s vital to make a great first impression, even on paper. That said, I think it’s a nice touch to include a nice, smiling photo of yourself to your CV. This makes you look personable and approachable, which are key attributes for your new role working with the public.

It is also very important to have your Hepatitis B vaccination in hand because this is a requirement before you can start working as a dental nurse.
