    What kind of questions were asked and how intensive was the interview
    Interview is conducted by two of the managers and both will ask you questions.

    You will first sit a 20min test, having to put a list of names into alphabetical order then numerical order.

    The main questions asked will be,

    • Why do want to be a Dental Nurse?
    • What do you know about the role of a Dental Nursing?
    • What do you think would make you a good dental nurse?
    • What do you know about the course?
    • Why King's and what do you hope to gain from training with King's?
    • Why should they choice you?


    They may also ask you questions like?


    • How would you deal with a Patient such as a child or aggressive patient?
    • Give an example of when you had to work as a team and what do you think the importance of working as a team is?
    • How would you cope with pressure and stress at work?


    The main thing is to just be yourself, do your research and make a list of questions to ask at the end.

    Good luck.

    Yes, this is standard with any NHS job, if they offer you a place (which I am pleased to say they have for me) you will need to go through a series of checks, Identity, CRB, references and occupational health.

    The health questionnaire is for the occupational health check, if you receive a conditional offer you will need to under go health checks which this form is related to. I have my check in July.

    Nothing to worry about.
