To complete your Record of Experience, you will need to work under the supervision of a dentist or clinical dental technician who is willing to sign and write comments. You have up to six months to complete your portfolio. On completion, scan/e-mail or post a copy to Dental Nurse Network. Assessing the portfolio may take up to twenty-one working days.
