ORAL HEALTH EDUCATION (Also known as NEBDN Certificate in Oral Health Education) ‘An apple a day, keeps the doctor away.’ This old adage is, most unfortunately, misinformed. After all, apples contain heaps of fructose. Eating one every single day actually takes you back to the embrace of your dentist more quickly (dentists are doctors, you know). Do you want to explode myths and teach patients more about oral health? Teeth might seem insignificant at first glance (as compared to the brain, for instance), but due to their strategic location (they are right on your face), they can lead to many issues. For instance, apart from low self-esteem, caries can lead to infective endocarditis and maxillary sinusitis.
If you’re already a qualified dental nurse, and want to advance the good work you’ve been doing, then this course is definitely for you!
Formal Name of Qualification: NEBDN Certificate in Oral Health Education;
Prospects upon Completion – Why it’s worth the money:
Let’s be honest. We pay for a course because we think it’s going to lead to something. No worries here. At All. We’ve got you covered. Oral health education is so important these days, that upon completion, you are simply drowned in the sheer number of doors it opens up for you.
If you work for the NHS, this extra certificate undoubtedly helps you become an oral health educator, which is a priority these days;
You can become a dental hygienist or therapist, or even a course instructor, teaching the public about the importance of maintaining dental health!
Assessment Methods – Annoying but Crucial:
We know the prospect of assessments is rather daunting. But then, in order to check that you actually understand what’s going on and for us to help you more on your path to mastery, we’ve got three different assessment components which focus on different learning objectives. We swear, towards the end, you’ll thank us for it!
You will get your resplendent certificate the moment you ace the following!
Record of Competence (RoC);
It’s work-based and is similar to a logbook. It’s to see whether you can apply what you’ve learnt in the theoretical realm to the real world. Therein you encounter three different sections:
Practical Competence Assessment Sheets (PCAS)
Examination (Duration – 90 minutes; definitely manageable!)
Usually, exams are held in March & September each year.
Part A – 45 multiple choice questions (MCQ)
