Dental Nurse Network (DNN) was set up to inspire and encourage dental nurses to develop their skills and further their careers. We are committed to providing ethical, affordable and flexible high-quality education led by teachers who are experienced, passionate and qualified in their field.
Who We Are
We are a team of dental care professionals – mostly dental nurses, dental therapists and dental hygienists – who work together to provide resources and training for dental nurses across the UK. We all value ethical education practices and are continuously updating our qualifications to ensure we are offering the best support, resources and services.
We create opportunities for nurses with additional qualifications to work with us and gain experience and extra income. We have a team of registered dental care professionals who write up-to-date, relevant content for us. They also teach, both online and in classroom settings, which allows them to gain valuable experience and enjoy generous rates of pay.
At DNN, we value ethical practices and excellence.
We provide excellent support services for all our courses and are constantly looking for ways to improve our support services and overall learning experience.
DNN was set up by dental nurses, for dental nurses. That means we know what it’s like to work in the industry. We’ve experienced the highs and the lows, and we know the issues we all face every day. This means we’re particularly passionate about the fair treatment of dental nurses. We believe that by empowering our members with knowledge and education, we can make progress towards being regarded as professional and valued members of the dental team.
Dental Nurse Network has partnered with Dentaid's BrightBites oral health initiative, sponsoring over a thousand children per year.
BrightBites is an educational resource with lesson plans and experiments aimed at teaching children about their teeth. Volunteers visit schools to deliver a presentation that covers toothbrushing, sugar awareness and the importance of regular dental check ups. All the children receive a leaflet, toothbrushing chart, toothbrush and toothpaste. This is complemented by resources and lesson plans for teachers, which include experiments and classroom activities.
We also support other charities including Mercy Ships and A21 Campaign. The A21 Campaign is an anti-trafficking charity. There are more slaves in the world today than at any other time in human history. The A21 Campaign:
- prevents human trafficking through awareness and education;
- protects victims of human trafficking through restoration programmes;
- pursues justice by prosecuting human traffickers;
- partners with people just like you to fight for freedom together.
We work with Henry Schein Dental and Medicruit. Both companies share similar ethical values, and Henry Schein has been particularly supportive of dental nurse empowerment and development.
