I have recently started to train as a dental nurse, it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a number of years.
I’m really enjoying training with EDC even more than I expected, many of the staff have been here for a long time so it has a real family feel and they have all been so kind and keen to help me learn, I’ve especially enjoyed meeting so many lovely and interesting patients.
