Diane Cox

Emma is joined by Diane Cox who returned to dental nursing in 2004 following a career break during which she excelled in various aspects of customer services. Since returning to dental nursing Diane passed the National Certificate for Dental Nursing with a distinction. She has a passion to mentor other student dental nurses to provide not only first class chairside assistance, but also dental nurses that offer exceptional all round patient care, who become an asset to the business.

Diane has offered in-house training to student dental nurses at Absolute Dental and also to students from the University of Plymouth since 2009 as part of their practical training. Diane is an examiner for the National Diploma in Dental Nursing exam. She has a real passion for dental nursing and is always keen to improve her knowledge and keep up to date with innovations in dentistry. It is this enthusiasm that Diane uses to motivate and inspire her students. The “Intensive Training” courses provided by Absolute Dental Training is something she thoroughly enjoys, allowing her to give new or returning dental nurses and other non-clinical team members an intense overview of dental nursing, through which they gain vital practical and theoretical knowledge which they are able to put into immediate use within their own workplace.

I am on the Reader Panel for Vital Magazine which is a vital source of CPD for the whole dental team.I am invited to comment on a wide range of current dental issues, featured as articles in the magazine, prior to publication of the magazine my comments are included in the Reader Panel section of each article. Many of my students read this magazine and it is wonderful to have your views considered as relevant in this ever changing industry.
