Youngsters have a chance to get their teeth into dental career

FYLDE coast youngsters are being given the chance to get their teeth into a career as a dental nurse.

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is offering a Dental Nurse Apprenticeship scheme starting later this year.

Dental Cadet Co-ordinator Louise Eadie from Moor Park Health Centre, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people across the Fylde coast who have a genuine interest in dental nursing and want a career in this field.

“The programme will suit individuals who prefer a practical way of learning, giving them hands on experience whilst working towards their qualification. It’s also a great opportunity to build new friendships and experience working as part of a team.”

To apply for the course, or for further details, contact Louise Eadie, Dental Cadet Co-ordinator, on 01253 651528 or louise.eadie@nhs.net
