Dr Mark’s nurse Fran recently passed her National Certificate in Dental Nursing, after attending college at Guy’s Hospital. The National Certificate is one of the qualifications approved by the General Dental Council (GDC) for statutory registration which became mandatory for all dental nurses from 31st July 2008. The GDC is the organisation which protects the public by regulating dentists and dental care professionals in the UK. Under the GDC regulations, unqualified dental nurses may only work under supervision as trainees provided they are enrolled on a theoretical training course at an approved training centre. Fran is now taking her Biology A Level so that she can apply to become a hygienist.
