This can include:

  • Getting the appropriate instruments ready
  • Mixing materials for dental procedures
  • Ensuring patient comfort throughout their visit
  • Taking notes from dentists’ dictation for personal records
  • After the patient has been treated, tidy the surgery and sterilise all of the dental instruments

In general dental practices, the dental nurse may help with:

  • Reception work
  • Making appointments
  • Taking payments
  • Dealing with paperwork
  • Meeting and reassuring patients

Dental nurses can be employed in general practice, hospitals or the community dental services and can also train as a dental nurse in the armed forces.
