Big company, can be but of a popularity contest. Not massive amounts of internal progression meaning lots of competition for positions. Constantly rebuffing

Great place to work

Great place to work although starting during COVID was slightly different to normal times. Good management and team spirit. Felt like a valued member of staff

Hard work, not enough wages

For the work you put into training and being a nurse, you are no where near respected or treated as such. Disappointing as I love my job but sometimes dentists can be very belittling and it makes me want too go back to retail and that’s saying somethinf

Great benefits, busy days

Enjoying my job here, Bupa offer fantastic benefits and opportunities to move on. Management are approachable. The days fly by as it’s very busy, spending time with the residents is amazing.

Management hard to deal with

Management very hard to deal with as they had favourites, area manager was useless and actually wished me luck looking for another job rather than helping me sort a simple issues out. Dentists do not appreciate their nurses, nurses don't work well as a team due to this. Overall, a very toxic environment which made me leave dental nursing altogether. I did work at another Bupa up north and it was very lovely so they are not all the same

No opportunities to progress

They got rid of a lot of good people in a mass redundancy a while back and did not care much for the employees at the time which led to a very toxic workplace. May be better now.

People too overworked

Not enough people, wants to be caring and have good values but puts pressure on people. Good benefits I.e healthcare but you become exhausted and just generally overworked.

Busy workplace with hardworking colleagues!

Dental nursing as a whole is stressful and not for everyone, it can be hard to get time off and the pay isn't great however this is definitely one of the best places I have worked and they at least try to support you when and where they can.

Great Team 😊

I started my training at Herlington and have always been supported throughout my course. Great management and team and love working with my dentist 😊

For the mentally strong

It can be tough listening to hard calls from people who are ill. Training was intense but apart of me feels like there wasn’t enough training when it comes to certain tasks/queries. It’s a role where you have to learn on the job/learn backwards but that means a lot of the time you are putting members on hold to try and figure out what to do next. There isn’t really enough support especially when you are new. Have had a lot of calls where I am left in tears afterwards.The pros is the environment, how it’s a hybrid role, the people you work with are all nice too.

The best practice I’ve worked at.

I’ve worked at Bupa Herlington for the last 5years and it is by the far the best practice I’ve worked in. Bright and clean surgeries, so many possibilities for development and great management who are approachable and always willing to help. If you’re an individual who’s hard working, can work well as part of a team, good time management and can take direction then Herlington is a great practice for you.


Friendly team, great and approachable management, so much room for development.

Lovely people

Colleagues lovely , facilities good including onsite gym, restaurant and coffee shop. Hybrid working now standard . Job very stressful , busy to point of exhaustion . Customers can be rude and aggressive , hard when the call before was a bereavement call, or someone with a terminal illness who cried while they spoke to you . Needs more support and less micro monitoring by management . Could so easily be improved just by doing this .
