“It has been a pleasure to work with the UK’s Registered Dental Nurses (RDNs) and BADN to produce the DN UK Retention Survey 2023 Report” said Dr Reed, a Registered Dental Nurse herself, former BADN Chairman, and Chair of the College of General Dentistry’s (CGDent) Dental Nursing and Orthodontic Therapy Faculty Board. “The document presents the findings from the survey carried out between January and March 2023. The survey is believed to be the first comprehensive survey solely focused on DN retention in the UK. The report has been made freely available for those who wish to draw upon the data. It is hoped the report will make a significant contribution to the discourse related to dental nurses (and other dental professional) workforce retention.”

Current BADN Chair Joan Hatchard said “As the professional association for dental nurses in the UK, BADN were delighted to work with Dr Debbie Reed on this survey. Finally, we have reliable data on this issue obtained through an ethically approved, methodologically sound research approach which can be used to inform decisions relevant to the dental nurse workforce.
