Emma Johnson

After qualifying as a dental nurse in 2018, Emma trained in Oral surgery at the LDI, in addition to post reg courses such as fluoride application and impression taking and almost went on to train as a dentist until she discovered all the amazing opportunities with Cavity.

Since joining the Cavity team in late 2018 as a locum nurse, she has become a fit tester, assessor, and tutor, has enjoyed the opportunity to work with the Dental Maverick’s team in Morocco as part of the Cavity charity support initiative and even prison work. ‘The Company has given me a real passion to share my skills’.

In her down time Emma and her dog Beau enjoy walking, Rugby Union and a cuddle on sofa in front of a great movie.


We found Cavity to be amazing help. They listen to your needs and go above and beyond to get you the trainee that you need.

I did my course years ago. It was classroom based one night per week. I think I would prefer to be more ‘hands on’ like it is now. Cavity really are a great company to work for. I truly believe that there expertise will ensure the next generation are amazing!

I did mine over an apprenticeship but the company my employer used wasn’t great and I didn’t get much support. Although I passed I can only imagine the length that Cavity have gone to to ensure that the students feel supported. As an employee, its super!
