The graduation of the National Dental Nurse Training Programme of Ireland class of 2007 took place on 22 February 2008 for all centres.

Prizes for the highest result in each of the following centres were sponsored by the Dublin Dental School and Hospital and the recipients were as follows:
• Dublin – Marina Quinn
• Galway – Marian Briody

In addition, the Dental Council sponsored a prize for the highest overall result over all of the centres. There were two students in the class of 2007 that shared the highest results and a joint prize was awarded to Marina Quinn (Dublin) and Marian Briody (Galway).

For students studying in the Dublin, Galway and Carlow centres the graduation was in the Radisson SAS hotel in Stillorgan, and for students studying in the Cork, Waterford and Limerick centres, the graduation was held in the Cork University Dental School and Hospital.
