DNNET covers all the learning material for the NVQ 3 in Dental Nursing and National Certificate of the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses, and this will include the underpinning knowledge Dental Nurses will need to register.
Volume one of DNNET covers three central units over three disks:
? Promoting, monitoring and maintaining health, safety and security in the workplace
? Preparing and Maintaining environments and instruments for clinical dental procedures

Of particular current interest, disk two covers the issue of infection control, teaching nurses how to ensure complete disinfection and sterilisation of equipment and surfaces. The unit focuses on cleaning methods and systems for limiting infection as well as looking at the importance of waste management and ensuring all dental nurses are aware of current legislation.
