Lone Working

Free CPD for Dental Nurses

Did you know, if you work from home, travel for work or work in more isolated parts of the office you are deemed as a lone worker? Do you know what to do in the event of an incident in this situation? Does your place of work have a policy in place to keep you all up to date on this? There are lots of things to consider which is why we have written our very own Lone Working course.

"I just want to let you know that Zuzana is a credit to your company!!!!!!!!!!
We have had the worst day ever and Zuzana just cracked on with it all morning. I cannot thank her enough. I know most people like to complain so that's why I am writing this because the girl is amazing and should be acknowledged. Thank you Cavity.

dental dbs check

Do you need a DBS check?

If you need a dental DBS check (previously known as a CRB check) then Cavity can help you! One of our Cavity representatives can visit your practice at a suitable time to complete all the relevant paperwork. These are currently being completed contact free.

The CQC state that all clinical staff working within a dental practice will need to obtain an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check. Cavity are now a DBS umbrella company and are able to carry out DBS checks for individuals, groups and practices.

One of Cavitys’ Managers will visit your practice at a time convenient to you, to finalise the relevant documents. Once this has been done, the completed form will be sent off and you will then receive your DBS certificate directly to you in the post. We can carry out a DBS for the whole of your clinical team or individual staff members.
