Calling all registered dental nurses and Registered Nurses

Are you interested in finding out more about a career in maxillofacial nursing?

Our maxillofacial nursing team here at Queen Victoria Hospital (QVH) is holding a drop-in open evening on Tuesday 3 May from 5.30-7.30pm in the outpatients department, to give anyone interested in a potential career in maxillofacial nursing a chance to find out more.

This is an ideal opportunity for any registered dental nurses or Registered Nurses who might be looking for a new challenge.

It will be a chance to look around the department, chat to the team, and ask any questions you have about maxillofacial nursing.

What does the maxillofacial unit do?

Our unit provides a wide range of support to QVH’s orthodontists, maxillofacial and plastic surgeons. This includes supporting the hospital’s head and neck services which are recognised regionally and nationally for the specialist expertise. QVH also provides specialist head and neck cancer services for West Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

QVH’s maxillofacial surgeons work closely with ear, nose and throat services which have regular outpatient clinics on site. Our specialist orthodontic team advise and treat children and adults with complex problems such as facial deformity, hypodontia, malaignment of the jaws and positional problems of the teeth. Our orthodontic consultants also provide specialist care for patients needing orthognathic surgery, cleft lip and palate surgery, as well as those with sleep apnoea and hypodontia.
