Hayes - UB3

Organized, detail-oriented and empathetic to customer needs. Skilled at helping customers find the products and services that they need. Shop worker attentive to customer needs and ready for high tempo work. Delivers positive and professional service to people of different backgrounds. Accurate in money handling and payment processing. The positive experience I had while wearing braces and the strong bond I formed with my dental team motivated me to pursue a career as a dental nurse. Their compassionate care and support made me realize the profound impact dental professionals can have on patients’ lives. Witnessing their dedication and expertise firsthand inspired me to be part of a profession where I could provide the same level of care and assistance to others.


Birmingham - B19

I have witnessed the detrimental effects that poor oral hygiene can have on a person’s life and the significance of maintaining a healthy oral routine by helping my mum with her dental checkups.  A dental nurse’s work has a significant influence since, in addition to providing support to patients who are anxious about their procedures, they also educate clients about the significance of adhering to their treatment plans and help dentists perform these procedures on them. The position is highly fulfilling because it allows you to support people of all ages, help them gain confidence, and play a crucial part in maintaining the sterility of all equipment—a measure that is vitally necessary in preventing infections among clients.


Lancashire - BB9

I am organised and can work well under pressure. I have excellent communication skills and the ability to use my own initiative. I am always willing to learn new skills. I am friendly, helpful and polite. I am able to work independently in busy environments within a team setting. I am outgoing and tactful, and able to listen effectively when taking instructions. I have recently passed my level 2 access to nursing and level 1 health and social care. I enjoy working with people and have always found medical science interesting and the benefits it has for people. I would like to become a dental nurse as I think the role would be rewarding in helping the community improve their oral health. I would enjoy working with a wide range of people and feel fulfilment from making a difference.
