Henry Schein MediCruit Supporting Dental Nurses

MediCruit, a Henry Schein affiliate, providing recruitment solutions to the dental sector, has announced its new collaboration with the Dental Nurse Network Academy – an organisation offering flexible, affordable, accredited training to dental nurses as well as high-quality learning material and student support – to extend its range of professional education to dental nurses in the United Kingdom.

Through this new relationship, MediCruit offer two new courses that will help dental professionals achieve extended skills for their profession.

NEBDN (National Examining Board for Dental Nurses) Fluoride Varnish

The NEBND Fluoride Varnish course is a qualification specially designed to help dental professionals develop vital skills at applying fluoride varnish under the prescription of a dentist or as part of a structured oral health programme.

Medical Emergencies

This course offers explanation and guidance around legislation and improves the ability to deal with medical emergencies in dentistry. It will enable dental professionals to understand the importance of recording and updating a patient’s medical history and explains the theoretical process of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). It helps with the identification and correct usage of the right emergency equipment and treatment for a competent response to any common medical emergencies.

Philip Barker, Director with MediCruit, explains: “Using the services from MediCruit, dentists can source new team members with the aid of specialists within the dental recruitment field. The MediCruit team delivers a professional and superior service by listening to and understanding the customers’ expectations to help ensure that they find the ideal match for their team and for the candidates’ career aspirations.

“Thanks to this new collaboration, we are able to provide additional high-quality education and training to dental nurses to enlarge their professional scope so that they are able to more advanced support the dentist and the whole practice workflow.”

The courses are held by Stephanie Carter, RDT, RDH, DTLLS, a registered dental hygienist and therapist who holds a level 5 teaching diploma. She is a qualified assessor, and her main role is teaching and quality assurance. She has over 13 years’ experience in the dental profession.
