Dental Nursing Apprenticeship Level 3 - Wortley House
Dental Level 3
During the Dental Nurse Apprenticeship, you will receive ongoing support, development and training to equip you with the skills and knowledge required to qualify and have a successful career in dental nursing.
Your daily activities could include:
Assisting the dentist in providing safe and effective treatments to patients, from simple check-ups to advanced specialist treatments
Providing patients with a high level of care
Setting up and cleaning surgery

Preparing instruments and materials for various treatments
Adhering to practice policies and procedures
During your working day, the dental practice will support you with learning the practical skills required, whilst your training provider (Aspiration Training) will teach you the theory side. Your study will be based online with regular teaching and 1-2-1 sessions. Off the job training will be given throughout your apprenticeship during paid working hours.
At Wortley House Dental our aim is to give all of our patients the best possible dental care in a safe and relaxed environment. We offer a comprehensive range of services from hygienist services to periodontal treatment as well as standard check-ups to make sure that your dental health remains as good as it can possibly be and we would like to offer an apprenticeship to a keen, enthusiastic person, to train and learn with our nursing team.
