Dental Nurses have unique CPD needs based on working with and supporting their dentist and patients. A competent, confident and efficient dental nurse can make all the difference to patients and the practice as a whole.

We have run courses for dental nurses since 2013 and continue to expand the range we offer. From one-day introductory courses, to courses run in partnership with our dentist courses, to a yearlong NEBDN Certificate in Dental Implant Nursing, we are always looking for new and interesting ways to provide hands-on CPD for dental nurses.
