About us

We cover London, Reading and Slough as Part-time Dental Nurse Courses and CPD Courses are taught by us in Bracknell, Berkshire. We are the largest DCP [Dental Care Professionals] training organisation in Berkshire, and also the oldest running. We have taught dental nurses and trainee dental nurses from London, Reading, Slough, Newbury, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Middlesex, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire, and Wiltshire and the trainee dental nurses have gone on to register with the GDC. Our NEBDN National Diploma courses are fully accredited by the NEBDN. Our Tutors are highly experienced in the field of dentistry [since 1972 and 1989] and are highly qualified teachers of adults [see below]. Mrs Hatchard is a very hignly qualified DN [see below]. Additionally, we are both serving National Diploma Practical Examiners so we both know and understand the needs of the students and the requirements of the NEBDN. We are dedicated to providing quality training for dental nurses and practice staff. We offer a service to dental nurses & dentists which aims to support the delivery of high quality Oral Healthcare in their practices. We can also come to your practice to help your staff create a Staff Training Manual & we offer in-house training. All Courses/study days can be part of the staff’s Personal Development Plans and our CPD courses will count towards the GDC requirement for CPD.

We attend numerous meetings throughout the UK to do with training of Dental Nurses so that we are geared to be in-line with any changes in GDC or National Examining Board for Dental Nurses’ requirements
