My Change Of Career... To An Orthodontic Nurse!

Have you ever thought about nursing in an Orthodontic Practice? The exciting role of an Orthodontic Nurse can be both very rewarding and satisfying. That's why we asked recent DTC learner Emma Louise from Liverpool to record her experience of how she changed her life and is now working in a Private Orthodontic Practice and here's what she told us...

I had been a qualified Dental Nurse for about 4 years and was working in a VERY busy general NHS practice in the heart of Liverpool! I loved my job but wanted a change of direction. I wanted an environment where I was seen by patients, not taken for granted, I wanted to work in a private, cosmetic atmosphere. So I decided to take the first step and research how I could make that change.

I was relieved to discover that to work in an Orthodontic Practice you don't need to be a qualified Orthodontic Nurse! You just need to be a qualified dental Nurse! Excellent!

Obviously I wanted to increase my chances of success and really stand out so I decided to complete DTC's short course in Effective Orthodontic Nursing. The course didn't take me too long to complete, after I received my certificate I didn't waste any time in applying to Ortho Practices and within a couple of months I started work in a state of the art fancy private Orthodontic Practice!

I have been here for 6 months now and am absolutely loving it!!!! What I love most about my career change, not only am I earning more money now but I love the fact that patients come in to see us not because they have to or are in pain but because they want to. I now feel fully rewarded and appreciated for the work I do! Best move I ever made!
