'My name is Pfidzai Esther Nenzou and I qualified as a dental nurse in 2001. I hold an LLB Hons in Law degree and currently also work as a Dental Implant Co-ordinator. I have found dental nursing rewarding and have worked in various settings hence increasing my knowledge and improving my expertise. I have worked for Boots, Ministry of Defence, The Dental Implant Clinic and other private practices to mention just a few. I have all round experience in practice management, reception, forensic dental nursing, implant nursing, orthodontic nursing as well as Endodontic nursing and have worked in all these disciplines. Over the years as a DCP I have trained several new staff members at various practices and believe that my standards are consistently high.
Things have changed for the better for dental nurses following the need to now be registered and this has seen the course becoming more in demand. It also gives the dental nurse more roles to perform such as taking impressions , suture removal etc. There are several other post certification courses which you can do as a nurse to expand your role, these include sedation, oral health education, radiography, implant nursing and orthodontic nursing. Dental nurses can also proceed to train as dental hygienists. The opportunities are now endless and career progression prospects are now very good.'
