I qualified as a Dental Nurse at the Dental Academy in 2012. I spent 5 years in a busy NHS practice working with principal dentists, hygiene therapists and the larger reception team. For 3 of those years, I was the designated nurse to the Foundation Dentists. I really enjoyed my experience as being the FD nurse allowed me to develop my skills and help understand the struggles of a newly qualified dentist. This role definitely shaped me to be more understanding of students which has set me up for my role in the Dental Academy.
