Course programme

Syllabus

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. NEBDN continually monitors and reviews the structure of the qualification to ensure that it meets current educational requirements and the needs of the profession.
The syllabus includes words such as describe, explain, identify or demonstrate which indicate the depth of understanding required and will determine how the assessments for the qualification are carried out.
The application of knowledge in practical situations and the skills required are assessed through a Record of Experience.

Training

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.

Theoretical training should be undertaken by attendance on an NEBDN accredited course. The syllabus may be covered using lectures, seminars and practical simulation. Other teaching methods may also be used such as Computer Assisted Learning and Problem Based Learning.

The main objective of the course is that, upon completion, dental nurses should be competent to offer dental health information to individuals and small groups.

It is suggested that a total of 45 hours (including practical experience and theoretical teaching) is normally sufficient to cover the course but this is not prescriptive as the delivery may vary from centre to centre.

Examination

The examination, which assesses underpinning knowledge and understanding, takes place on the third Saturday of March and September each year and is held in selected major towns and cities throughout the UK.
The examination consists of a written paper and oral examination.
