"I would refer a friend to Cavity as I think they are very professional and staff are looked after. I really enjoy working as a locum Dental Nurse because I'm gaining more experience within the practices I go to and I feel very appreciated by the dentists. I wish I'd of worked for Cavity sooner, I did enjoy my job in general practice but now I feel even more motivated to fulfil my role! "
