This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

Dental nurses are usually employed directly by dental practice owners, so decisions about dental nurses' terms and conditions of employment, including pay, are a matter for practice owners, and not the Government or House of Commons.

You could start a petition calling for the Government to increase the pay band for dental nurses employed directly by the NHS, if this something you would like to happen.
