BADN president Jacqui Elsden has urged dental nurses to speak up and engage with the HEE Advancing Dental Care Review.

Jacqui explains, “This is a golden opportunity for dental nurses, the largest GDC registrant group, to shape the future of dental nursing. If we remain silent, nothing will change. As dental nurses, we still face many barriers to our professional progress, so I urge all BADN members to take one small step today which could help shape the future of our profession for yourself, and also for those dental nurses who will follow in your footsteps.

By attending one of the workshops listed via the link (www.hee.nhs.uk/our-work/advancing-dental-care/advancing-dental-care-phase-ii), you will be joining BADN’s big conversation about clinical and non-clinical career opportunities (academic, research, leadership and management)."

If you can’t get to a workshop, please send your views to the BADN president Jacqui Elsden (president@badn.org.uk), who is working with Malcolm Smith, chair of the ADC Review, for the benefit of dental nurses, by close of business on December 20 2019.
