The One Thing Only 1 in 10 Dental Nurses Do and How It sets Them Apart From the Rest

March 13, 2017 in Uncategorized by Jaco van der Merwe

Hi Everyone

If you would really like to have a committed team then upskilling your nurses is the way to do it! One way is to look at impression and photography training for your dental nurses.

A highly trained team is the best asset a dentist can have, reducing both workload and stress levels.

GDC dental nurses can now be trained to take impressions under the prescription of a dentist, which means we have dental nurses running their own records clinics in practices.

We can teach your dental nurses how to take alginate and silicone impressions, and basic bite records all in one day, in your practice!

We pride ourselves on developing the skill set of your dental nurses so they can work under the prescription of the dentist.

Records clinics work well for general practices that offer GDP orthodontics. If your dental nurses had a session a week for their own patients this would result in high morale and often quicker appointments for patients.

When your dental nurses are carrying out these procedures the dentist does not have to be present. This does not mean they can have a cup of tea!

Using your dental nurses in this way works well for all practices offering orthodontics or GDP orthodontic systems. This also is proven to increase dentists hourly rate as they are able to schedule more complex treatments in replacement of records appointments.
