About Dental Nursing
Masters degrees in Dental Nursing develop the skills and techniques needed to help dentists in provide care and administer treatment for patients undergoing dental procedures.
Related subjects include Dental Public Health, while entry requirements usually include a relevant undergraduate degree such as Nursing, Dentistry or Medicine.
Dental nurses work within a variety of clinical and non-clinical settings, assisting dental surgeons, hygienists and general dental practitioners as they administer surgical and non-surgical interventions. These include procedures such as tooth removal and implantology, as well as cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening.
You will be trained to assess best practice and explore issues such as performance and support within dental practice, as well as the legal, ethical and financial aspects of the relationship between dentists and dental nurses.
Careers in this field are highly varied. Aside from traditional roles in clinical and private practice, you might wish to consider avenues within public health, contributing to public health policy-making and service planning. Similarly, you could also explore roles in health commissioning, offering advice and support to dental professionals engaging in dentistry practice.
