Dental Nursing

First Dental Training Institute in association with New College Lanarkshire (University of London), UK introduces certificate in dental nursing for the first time in India.

The dental nurse is an essential member of the dental team. A Dental Nurse mainly assists the dentist during the procedure by handing over the required instruments. They prepare the treatment room following proper procedures and protocols which includes welcoming, comforting, seating and draping the patient. They provide relevant information to patients and employees like answering questions and requests.

She/he performs a range of patient care services, surgery procedures and administrative duties. Surgery procedures include the sterilisation of instruments, preparation of dental materials, and processing radiographs.

What qualities does a Dental Nurse need?
A dental nurse is usually the patients' first contact upon entering the dentist's surgery. People are often very nervous at the dentist and a dental nurse must be able to put the patient at ease - a dental nurse needs good people skills. In the surgery a dental nurse needs to be able to work quickly and keep calm. As some of the chair-side work can be very precise, a dental nurse is expected to have a high degree of manual dexterity.

Where will I receive my practical training?
Most of our trainee dental nurses work with dental practitioners in Coimbatore. The majority of our nurses will be trained in general practice, and we also provide on-job training.
