The Dental Team Education Centre (DTEC) at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust have two intakes a year, starting in March and September.

We are currently seeking enthusiastic people for this employed position of Trainee Dental Nurse. This course offers candidates training towards the City and Guilds (C&G) diploma in Dental Nursing as well as employment within the Dental Institute.

Trainees will work in and rotate around the various departments across King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the Community Dental Service and work towards a registerable qualification in Dental Nursing, which will provide entry onto the statutory register held by the General Dental Council (GDC).

Previous Dental Nursing experience is recommended. Candidates without previous clinical experience will need to demonstrate a good understanding of the dental nurse’s role in the surgery and have a flexible approach to working. All applicants should have a good general standard of education.

Work Permits

The ability to work full time in the UK is essential. This job is unlikely to attract a work permit. Therefore, applications from candidates who require a permit to work in the UK may not be considered if there are a sufficient number of other suitable candidates.
