Oral Health Education Course
We are a fully accredited college providing Post graduation in Oral Health Education.
Our dental hygiene courses for dental nurses ensure dental nurses can help prevent oral disease with patients, by concentrating on oral health promotion. The oral health course will cover topics in accordance with the NEBDN (National Examining Board for Dental Nurses) curriculum.
The syllabus for the Certificate in Oral Health Education reflects the theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary for the provision of health education by a dental nurse in a relevant dental environment. Candidates are required to record their clinical experience; therefore Practical training should be undertaken in the dental environment under the supervision of a dentist and recorded on log sheets in a Record of Experience.
- Qualified registered dental nurse with the General Dental Council
- Have the support of their employing dentist to act as supervisor and validate the workplace activities for the Record of Experience.
- Be registered with an approved training provider.
The examination, which assesses underpinning knowledge and understanding, takes place in the month of March and September each year and is held in our centre in Winchester and in Birmingham.
