Qualified Dental Nurses - Band 4

Full Time / Part Time Vacancies  – Dorset 

We are looking for enthusiastic and competent full time or part time Dental Nurses to join our Primary Care Dental Service in Dorset.  You would be based at either our adult clinic in Bournemouth or our children’s clinic at Canford Heath.

We provide high quality dental care for people with Additional Needs and in addition to clinics we visit patients at home and in Residential Homes.  There are excellent opportunities for career progression including being involved in Conscious Sedation and General Anaesthetics. 

The successful applicants must have an appropriate qualification in Dental Nursing and be registered with the General Dental Council.  Good communication skills are essential and the successful applicants will be team players with good organisational skills.  Experience of working with nervous patients and those with challenging behavior would be an advantage, but we are also happy to work with the right applicants to develop skills in this rewarding area of dentistry.

Working in the NHS offers many key benefits:

  • Flexible permanent and fixed term contracts – either full or part time
  • Excellent opportunities for career progression
  • Participation in conscious sedation and GA pathways with appropriate training
