“Thank you so much, Tracy. You have been amazing and a great help. I am so happy to have passed”
NEBDN Radiography student
Interesting statistics. Good examples of symptoms to look out for and I love the idea of ‘was not brought’. Will use this moving forward.
I found Forensic Odontology fascinating so I would be interested in doing a more in-depth course on this subject. All the core subjects are of interest to me.
I’m so over the moon that I have passed my exam!!
Thank you so much for your help and support would definitely recommend you to other nurses and I’m definitely considering doing more courses through yourself
I think you and your team are amazing! And even if I had failed I would have been saying the same!!
I started the Implant Dental Nursing Course with Dental Training Ltd back in June 2021, and I’ve really enjoyed the journey, in particular Aimee, my tutor, and Tracy both with as a huge support, helping me and giving me the tools to help me along the way! I haven’t studied for a post qualification for a while so getting back in to disciplined learning and deadlines seemed a very scary task! The Pebblepad tool is excellent, although for me initially I found to tricky to navigate but Aimee and Tracy were on hand to help get me going.
Pebblepad has been a great asset to me and to the course, being able to dip in and out when I was mobile was great. I found myself using it at home in the evenings, at work and even out and about at the weekends! It was very easy to use for any length of time.
Good refresher on general nursing and detailed information on impression material. Can’t wait to start taking impressions.
A lot of information provided. I have a better understanding of advanced surgical procedures and implant components.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and was so pleased to receive my certificate. Looking to do more courses in the future with you . Thank you once again!
I feel much more confident discussing diet and OHI with patients. The course provided good information on lots of topics not just OHI.
