Welcome and thank you for your interest in an apprentice dental nursing role at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Dental Nurses are vital in helping the Trust deliver the highest quality healthcare possible to many of our patients. The following video will help you determine if an apprentice dental nursing role is right for you.


The dental nurse works within the dental team to provide oral healthcare. As an apprentice dental nurse you will come into close contact with patients of all ages who may be anxious and in need of support and reassurance. Good communication skills and a friendly manner are essential. Dental nurses assist the dentist in all aspects of patient care. This will range from sterilising and preparing instruments, mixing materials and ensuring the patient is comfortable. They also assist the dentist with various procedures such as minor oral surgery and extractions.
