Towards the end of 2020, we all had hope and could see the light at the end of the tunnel. Approved vaccines, Christmas bubbles and the end of a devastatingly upsetting year.
With the new strain, came the cancellation of Christmas bubbles, the start of a tiering system, and ultimately our third national lockdown.
10 months of lockdowns, isolation, social distancing, and grief, what is new about this new year?
The struggle to keep positive, safe, and well during the previous months has at time been challenging. But somehow, we got through. I have been fortunate that my family have remained safe and well and that I have been able to create memories from quality time at home within my household. The dog is exhausted and totally fed up with us to say the least!
Whatever it is that is making you smile and getting you through the day, keep doing it.
There is still light at the end of the tunnel and we are slowly making our way through.
One day soon we will remember these times and a silver lining will shine bright, for you.
But in the mean time, you can always study towards your NEBDN.
Dental rules in lockdown
Following the new lockdown restrictions, dental practices across the country can remain open. But we are aware that many will be closing for safety purposes.
We understand that students will now face further struggles to complete their RoC.
We are awaiting advice and guidance from the NEBDN, regarding the current RoC submission dates. We will be in touch with our students with any updated news.
For now please continue to work towards the below dates:
RoC submission for September 2020 exam – 28.02.21
RoC submission for March 2021 exam – 12.03.21
RoC submission for September 2021 exam – 30.06.21
The scheduled online exams for 2021 will be held on the 12.03.21 and 10.09.21.
