MediCruit, a Henry Schein affiliate providing recruitment solutions to the dental sector, has teamed up with the Dental Nurse Network Academy, an organisation offering flexible, affordable, accredited training with high-quality learning material and student support to dental nurses.
Through this partnership, MediCruit will offer two new courses to enable dental nurses and other professionals to achieve extended skills for their profession.
The NEBDN Fluoride Varnish course (for dental nurses) is specially designed to enable dental nurses to develop vital skills in applying fluoride varnish under the prescription of a dentist or as part of a structured oral health programme.
This course (for all dental professionals) offers explanations and guidance around legislation and improves dental professionals’ ability to deal with medical emergencies in dentistry. It enables dental professionals to understand the importance of recording and updating a patient’s medical history and explains the theoretical process of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). It enables the identification and correct usage of emergency equipment and covers treatments and competent responses to common medical emergencies.
“Thanks to this new partnership, we are able to provide additional high-quality education and training to dental nurses and other professionals to enlarge their professional scope so that they are able to provide more advanced support to the dentist and improve the whole practice workflow,” says Philip Barker, Director of MediCruit.
The courses are taught by Stephanie Carter, RDT, RDH, DTLLS, a registered dental hygienist and therapist who holds a Level 5 teaching diploma. She is a qualified assessor, and her main role
is teaching and quality assurance. She is a passionate educator and has over 13 years’ experience in the dental industry.
