Course Information:

The course is a 12-month program that runs fortnightly via classroom learning, which is located in our training center in Wimbledon, London. Most recently, due to Covid-19, we have transferred all learning online into a series of organised online webinars.

The National Diploma in Dental Nursing is a combination of working and learning. Students will be required to secure suitable means of employment with the assistance of the in-house Recruitment Team at the training center. This includes CV assistance, sourcing for suitable vacancies, and interview preparation.

Furthermore, students will be required to complete RoE (Record of Experience), which is a practical experience portfolio that needs to be completed gradually and in line with NEBDN standards provided by the NEBDN. To complete the RoE students should be working in a dental practice as a Trainee Dental Nurse.

Upon successful completion of the RoE submission, students will complete two exams which are a theoretical written exam and practical OSCE exam subject to successfully completing their RoE and previous exam.

As a result, students will be awarded certification from the NEBDN, which allows eligibility to register with GDC and become a registered Dental Care Professional (DCP).
