is anyone here an orthodontic therapist? Watch
Quick guides to apprenticeships
I was thinking of doing a dental nurse Apprenticeship and then completing an orthodontic therapy course. However I'm looking at current and past vacancies, they all require at least 2 years experience post qualification. How difficult was it for you to become employed after your course?
Hey! I’m a dental nurse with nearly 2 years post qualification, I’m currently in the journey to eventually do orthodontic therapy myself. They do require 2 years post experience, however, I don’t have any experience with ortho at all so that’s what I’m doing now! Hopefully, within the next months I’ll feel ready. You also do need a trainer which will be a specialist orthodontist. Hope this helps!
I've heard about the trainer, I guess if you work in an orthodontic practice you can find a trainer more easily? Is that the idea? Thanks for your help!
