Orthodontics has come a long way since those days and now children are clamouring to have braces fitted so they can be part of the “in” crowd. This change in attitudes is a testament to all of those who are involved in this speciality. Orthodontic dental nurses play a particularly important role in ensuring that a patient’s experience is a positive one.Orthodontic nurses interact with and care for patients in a variety of ways. They help to ensure that all patients are comfortable before and during each procedure. Orthodontic Nurses often counsel patients after surgery as well, providing advice on recovery, self-care and how to keep their condition from worsening or recurring. They may also take pre- and post-treatment photographs and dental impressions

One of an orthodontic nurse’s main duties is to prepare the room and equipment for surgery each day. The nurse sets up the necessary tools and materials the orthodontist will need for each procedure, which commonly includes mixing certain materials or composites prior to surgery. The nurse typically assists an orthodontist during surgery by handing him tools or providing an extra pair of hands when necessary. She is then responsible for cleaning up after the surgery. This includes disinfecting all surfaces, sterilizing the equipment and storing tools in a clean, safe compartment. Orthodontic nurses must adhere to strict health and hygiene standards to prevent infection or contamination

Processing and keeping track of patients’ lab results often falls under an orthodontic nurse’s duties. These nurses are responsible for ensuring that all lab work is checked and available before a patient’s arrival. Orthodontic nurses are often required to take X-rays of patients’ mouths and then develop them for the clinician to examine.Orthodontic dental nurses must adhere to X-ray safety procedures, following the best practice

Orthodontic dental nurses are often responsible for keeping patient records and helping the orthodontist take notes. They typically record what treatments have been carried out, patients’ personal details, and orthodontic assessments. Nurses also keep stock of equipment and dental supplies, and reorder when stock is running low. Depending on the practice, nurses may also be asked to help with reception work such as making appointments, processing payments and inputting patient data into a computer system.


Hello, I am Marianna Taylor, Orthodontic Dental Nursing Student at Buddha Dental Tree.I work at Worthing Hospital, West Sussex. I qualified as a dental nurse in 2010 and worked in a general dental practice before moving to the orthodontic department in the hospital. A typical day involves setting up the surgery, making sure I have the instruments and material, I need. The difference with the hospital setting is that I am also involved in the surgical side – anything from tooth extraction to biopsies and cleft palate clinic.

What I love about my job is the fact that you get to know the community and you have the opportunity to expand your knowledge on patient care, which indeed is very rewarding. My plan for the future is to become a DCP tutor and I am currently working on it by taking my post qualification courses. At my leisure, love spending time with my little boys, full of energy and I enjoyed running the Worthing 10 km in 2016.
