Theory:
The course follows the syllabus set out by the Exam Board for Dental Nurses.
Each week you have a set amount of work to complete, just as you would do at night school. The work is in an easy to follow and understand format & is available on paper or CD. You are allocated a tutor that you can contact if you get stuck or need further clarification on a subject. You send work to your tutor at regular intervals so your tutor can feedback to you on any revision needed. The course material will prepare you for the written examination.

Practical
As part of the exam you are expected to complete some practical tasks in your workplace. Your tutor will help. These tasks are submitted in written form to the examining board before the exam.
Work place assessments:
See 7 patients in total from different patient groups, 4 of these must be seen on 2 occasions. You will be delivering oral health message to patients covering a number of topics such as caries, periodontal disease, orthodontics, fluoride etc. At least 5 patient groups should be covered such as child, adult, older person, pregnant mother etc and all specified topics must be covered (See skills check).
Case studies:
1 detailed case study is required of a chosen patient. A syllabus will be provided which will provide guidance as to what to include in the case study, this must be followed to meet the criteria. This will demonstrate evidence of further reading and reflective practice.
