National Dental Nurses Day

20th Nov 2020

National Dental Nurses Day takes place on Sunday 22nd November 2020. We want to take a moment to appreciate each and every single one of you!

A dental nurse supports the dentist in all aspects of patients’ dental care.

As a dental nurse, you may help with reception work and could help any member of the dental team - dentists, clinical dental technicians/technologists, hygienists and therapists – treat patients of all ages. Some will be there for a check-up while others will have more complicated treatment. You’ll need to reassure people and put them at ease, while supporting the team in all aspects of patient care.

And 2020 has seen further changes to the role we all know and love so much.

You really are hero's and we here at Cavity appreciate everything you do.

We recently caught up with Sophie who's been nursing for 7 years and has been a Cavity Locum for over a year. Have a listen to what she has to say about the job she loves:
