Dental nurses or dental assistants are responsible for helping dentists with chair-side duties which may include handing them instruments, taking radiographs and sterilizing instruments. Dental nurses will also be expected to manage some part of the administration of a dental practice such as looking scheduling appointments, filing records and providing dental procedural education to patients.

A trainee dental nurse will be expected to perform all these tasks most of which she will learn on the job. She needs to possess at least a high school diploma along with a certification as a dental nurse with a current radiograph certificate.

If you fill this criterion, you may be fit for the position of a trainee dental nurse and can aspire to becoming a fully qualified dental assistant eventually.
