The team from Smart Dental were understanding and quick to act when I was finding it difficult to find a placement within my local area, reaching out to practices on my behalf and ultimately finding me a position in a practice that was convenient for me.

  • “Smart Dental Academy have been very useful for the practice. It’s great having a nurse that has the basic training and knowledge and comes to the practice ready to work. A lot of the usual administration involved to starting a new staff member, has already been done for you. I would definitely use Smart Dental Academy again if we needed an apprentice in the future”
