About his session, Warren commented: 'I will cover three main topics: ACORN/Contract Reform and the dental nurse's role; national oral health improvement programmes, Designed to Smile and Gwên am Byth; and the Wales Community Dental Service.

'The reform of primary care dentistry and the development of skill mixing is highly relevant to the modern dental nurse right now and the delivery of NHS dental care in the future. I hope to highlight the career opportunities that are available to dental nurses, including developing additional skills. The pandemic demonstrated the many transferable skills that a dental nurse has and individuals can make the most of these to drive their career.

'Ultimately, I hope delegates will see the exciting opportunities that are available to them and how dental nurses can lead on specific areas within dentistry.'

The British Dental Conference & Dentistry Show 2023 will be held on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 May, NEC Birmingham. For more information visit https://birmingham.dentistryshow.co.uk/
