Rosslyn Dental Agency News
Summer holidays are drawing to a close and much valued help
from our student workers is coming to a close.
We value our holiday workers who fulfil a vital role when our regular
nurses take time out to be with their families.
Our student workers are fully qualified dental nurses who have
changed careers paths to follow studies in hygiene or therapy or
other health related courses. We look forward to them returning to
assist us at their next break. If you are reading this note as a
student why not contact us to discuss how we can help? We work
with practices in South Wales, Bristol, Somerset and
Gloucestershire. We welcome all calls!
Also Agency Dental Nursing can be very flexible for those who have
family commitments and can be tailored to suit be it regular days or
odd times working perhaps with a family members shift or travel
pattern. We ask no more than a willingness to work when
available and a firm commitment to honour the assignment once
the work has been agreed. Our clients are very appreciative of our
help and value the wide experience our nurses can offer.
There is an increasing demand on our nurses with increasing work
practices. Computer literacy is now becoming a requirement in
many practices and from this a nurses can be required to make
notes during examinations and during treatment. It is therefore a
requirement that if you do get asked you do this carefully and pay
attention to all that is relayed as these notes may form part of a
Additionally many practices now use digital x-ray equipment and
this is another additional skill that is required. There are a great
many machines available and they work in many different ways.
The practices will demonstrate how the process works if the
equipment is new to a nurse .
All practices now have on display written instructions on the daily
protocols that must be followed. This includes preparation of the
surgery at the start and finish of the day and what is needed in
between patients. Many will ask the nurse to sign to say she has
read and understood the protocol.
If in doubt ASK!
Agency work can be rewarding and worthwhile. It can add to your
work experience. Dentistry is a never ending challenge and no two
days are ever the same wherever you work. Join Rosslyn and take
the challenge to become a valued member of our dental family
