The training will be a mixture of theoretical teaching for two sessions per week based in the classroom setting and the remaining time will be spent on rotations to the various clinical departments including:-
There will also be opportunities to attend day release placements to two Community Dental Practices, the Radiography department within EDH and the Macmillan Cancer Centre, in addition to two sessions of a two week placement within a General Dental Practice.
The theoretical component of the course is delivered in three modules;
All students will be required to complete the NEBDN electronic Record of Experience (eROE) alongside their clinical placements and as evidence of the practical skills and experience they are gaining.
There will be regular assessments that take place alongside the theoretical delivery of the course which provide the students with the knowledge required for all aspects of dental nursing.
At the end of the course candidates will be expected to pass the NEBDN written examination and OSCE examinations and to register with the General Dental Council.Entry Criteria:
