Dental Nurse News: National Living Wage

How the latest National Living Wage will affect dental nurses and other dental staff


From this Friday 1 April 2016 the National Living Wage increases to £7.20 per hour. All employees aged 25 or over other than those serving their first year under an apprenticeship scheme will be legally entitled to the minimum rate.
A survey of pay for dental nurses showed that the average pay rate is £8.17 per hour but as this is an average there are still quite a few who will be entitled to receive a pay-rise for their employers to comply with the new rule.
