Dental nurses


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.

Courses currently scheduled

Courses not currently scheduled

Conscious Sedation for Dental Nurses
This two-day course will improve your theoretical and practical understanding of conscious sedation. Register your interest.

Implant Dentistry for Dental Nurses: NEBDN Certificate
Implants is a growing area of dental nursing which requires specific skills and training. This course will develop your theoretical knowledge and clinical skills in implant dental nursing and prepare you to sit the NEBDN Dental Implant Nursing examination. Register your interest.


We have a small number of dental nurses who teach on our courses. When they are not teaching, they are actively involved in our UCL programmes which include treating patients. This makes them ideal in providing the crossover between practical dental nursing skills and education.

CPD courses for dental nurses are held in our academic teaching facilities, which  comprise of four fully equipped seminar rooms; three skills laboratories with a total of 50 individual work stations, each with its own phantom head equipment and computer screen linked to a teaching station; five well equipped surgeries (with microscopes) for clinical sessions and an open space where peer groups can meet to discuss the day’s teaching over tea and coffee.
