Peninsula Dental Social Enterprise Community Interest Company
Dependent on experience

We have an opportunity available for a Dentist position at our Dental Education Facility in Plymouth.

Peninsula Dental Social Enterprise (PDSE) is an award winning Community Interest Company that provides NHS treatment and outreach services to local communities in Devon and Cornwall. As a social enterprise, we are a values-driven organisation with a focus on patient-centred care and addressing local oral health needs. We work closely with the University of Plymouth’s Peninsula Dental School to support the clinical education of its dental healthcare students.

Peninsula Dental Social Enterprise is seeking to appoint a full time or part time Dentist (hours are negotiable). Pay is flexible and will be dependent on qualifications and experience.

The post holder will provide high quality NHS dental services in a multidisciplinary and innovative clinical environment. Patients may be referred via student teaching clinics, either for treatments more complex than can be managed by students, or to complete courses of treatment which cannot be completed by students because of time constraints.

There may be opportunities to supervise the clinical training of BSc Dental Therapy and Hygiene students and Dental undergraduate students as part of the role alongside providing an NHS dental service.

You must be registered with the GDC, have completed Dental Foundation training and hold a valid performer number.
