If you have been looking for a change of environment and a new opportunity to use your Dental Assistant experience – then this position is what you’ve been waiting for.


This is a unique opportunity with loads of variety within our Oral Health Service.  You will cover both our Dental Unit and Community Adolescent clinic and there will be times where you’ll be asked to provide assistance to the Community Oral Health Team, working with Dental Therapists based in schools or mobile dental units in the wider Southern area.
