National Diploma in Dental Nursing.

Are you working in a dental practice as a dental nurse and need to gain a formal qualification? We aim to prepare and qualify students to register with the GDC and work in dental clinical areas. Courses start at £1,195.

Fitness to Practice Policy

The GDC has reviewed their guidance for those employing, supervising or training student dental nurses. The guidance is based on the Standards for the dental team https://standards.gdc-uk.org/Assets/pdf/Standards%20for%20the%20Dental%20Team.pdf

This document is designed to protect patients and the public. The Standards which students and dental professionals should be following are:

  • Put the patient’s interests first
  • Communicate effectively with patients
  • Obtain valid consent
  • Maintain and protect patient’s information
  • Have a clear and effective complaints procedure
  • Work with colleagues in a way that is in the patient’s best interests
  • Maintain, develop and work within your professional knowledge and skills
  • Raise concerns if patients are at risk
  • Make sure your personal behaviour maintains a patient’s confidence in you and the dental profession

Wisdom Staffing Solutions has a recruitment policy in place to try and ensure that all students are eligible to start their training. If a student is removed from the courses due to misconduct or Fitness to Practice issues, the course fees are still payable and not refundable

The GDC statement

As part of our duty to protect the public, if a dentist or dental care professional falls seriously short of the standards expected of them we can either remove them from the Register or restrict what they can do professionally. These powers, given to us by Parliament, cover all registered dentists and dental care professionals whether they are working in the NHS or in private practice.

There may be doubts about dental professionals' fitness to practise due to:

  • Health;
  • Conduct, including convictions and cautions; or
  • Performance.

All students must be aware of the student fitness to practice policy and abide by its guidance
