The British Association of Dental Nurses (BADN), the UK’s professional association for dental nurses, today released the results of their 2020 Salary Survey. The survey was conducted on line between October and December 2020 and the Report compares the results of this survey with those of the survey conducted in 2013.

BADN President Jacqui Elsden said “The 2020 BADN Salary Survey shows that the majority of dental nurses still earn £20kpa or less, despite working full time and having been in the profession for more than 10 years.

“From this, they are still expected to pay their own GDC registration fee (51%), CPD costs (50%) and BADN membership (91%), receive no paid time off to complete their CPD requirements (87%) and no employee benefits (83%). This is obviously why nearly one fifth (16%) have a second job – half of whom have to have a second job to meet their basic living costs.

“Worryingly, 2% are working without indemnity cover, 5% don’t know if they have cover and more than half (55%) depend upon their employer’s cover!

“The results of the 2020 BADN Salary Survey reinforce BADN’s call for dental nurses to be paid a salary which recognises their status as registered dental care professionals, their education, training and qualifications, and their invaluable role in the dental team.”
