Our dental nurses do a fantastic job! Not only are they the right hand of the clinicians they support, they… read more
So much of a nurse’s personality and enthusiasm goes into the job. As the dental nurse team leader here, I think it’s important everyone knows we love our work!
I began my career working in different hospital departments. It was so varied! From Human Resources to Children’s Theatres. I worked alongside clinicians and gained different experiences from each ward. After I left the hospital, I worked in a Minor Injuries Department, developing my understanding and knowledge of both clinical and administrative practice. It was invaluable experience.
Being one of the dental team, I am able to constantly learn and grow within my role. I’m proud to be helping our trainee nurses to learn too. Group work is so important and no two days are the same. Our work is always challenging, but we must keep calm under pressure. And our patients must always come first.
My contribution ensures we operate in an efficient, happy and professional atmosphere. It’s important to maintain an effective and safe working environment for myself and my team, in accordance with the GDC requirements. Our team is willing to do anything within our scope of practice so that we can provide our patients with the best service.
While I’m enjoying my new position, I’m also motivated and determined to take on new challenges. I’ll enrol on additional courses so that I can take impressions, deliver oral health advice and radiography. New professional development opportunities are exciting to me as there is so much opportunity to develop new skills that are patient focused. My next step is to become a dental therapist.
Through my work so far, I’ve been lucky to work with people of all ages and abilities, in a variety of different settings. I’ve seen the positive effect nurses have on people. There are times when I find my job intense and exhausting but it allows me to grow as a person and improve as a professional.
