Dental Nurses

Administering dental nurses is a process we take seriously. Our dental nurse staff are interviewed face to face, and then tasked with a full day of locum training. They’re also fully CQC compliant.

Specialist Dental Nurses

If general dental nurses aren’t what you’re looking for, then not to worry, we have a great team of specialist dental nurses too. Our team of specialist nurses are experienced with a range of dental skills, including orthodontics, sedation, radiography and more.

"In the last few months we have called on Cavity to supply locum nurses to some of our sites across Kent and Sussex - as a specialist Ortho site knowledge in orthodontics has been paramount. We have had staff available for 99% of our requirements which has been a God send.
Communication has been excellent and quality of nurses has been of a very good standard."
