Personal characteristics necessary to become a leader – and a great dental nurse

Anyone who is thinking about future career progression as a dentist or dental nurse would be well-advised to read this article.

  • A good nursing leader is someone who gives praise to their team rather than taking all the credit.
  • Their advice is valued by colleagues and team members and they are respected for their personal integrity.
  • A great leader doesn’t look for praise; they give credit to others for their contributions.
  • Whether you are working in the dentist or nursing professions, seeking advice from those who are already in a leadership position is highly recommended.

“A great leader is committed, confident, creative, innovative, inspirational, passionate and compassionate. They have integrity, a strong sense of purpose and defined missions and visions.
