Oral Surgeon - Devon

Salary & Allowances: Band C – £72,324 - £83,118 pro rata

(Salaried Dental Service contract plus relocation expenses, a generous education allowance and NHS contributory pension scheme)

We are seeking to appoint an experienced part time Oral Surgeon to work within our modern primary care facility.

The key purpose of the post is to provide comprehensive Primary Care Oral Surgery to appropriately triaged patients referred in via their GP and GDP.

The post sits within the Salaried Dental Service and the post holder will provide Oral Surgery treatment from both Exeter and Barnstaple Dental Access Centres.

In order to be considered applicants must hold full registration with the General Dental Council and should be on the GDC register for specialist in oral surgery. It would be desirable to hold a dental performer number but the organisation can help facilitate this if necessary.

Devon is a beautiful county, home to some stunning blue flag beaches, and offers a wide variety of sporting, leisure and retail facilities, as well as excellent schools and universities.

For more information please contact Sue Smith, Specialist Services Manager, or telephone on 01392 356907 or Dan Knibb, Lead Dentist, or telephone on 01392 405716.

Continuous professional development and participation in audit is actively encouraged and supported. Accommodation may be available if required.

Our values guide everything we do. At all times, we aim to:

  • Demonstrate compassion
  • Strive for excellence
  • Respect diversity
  • Act with integrity
  • Listen and support others

Our teams of care professionals work with patients and their families to support peoples’ independence, health and wellbeing. We provide support to avoid hospital admissions, and if an admission is necessary, we try to make each patient’s stay in hospital as short and effective as possible before working with them on a safe discharge home.

In our most recent staff survey, our staff voted us in the top 10% of NHS provider organisations to work for and we also came out as the top provider in the South West for our overall results. Our patients (through the Friends and Family Test) regularly report an average of over 95% satisfaction with our services.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. For further information and to self-assess the likelihood of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship, please visit the UK Border Agency website. Note: we will be unable to obtain Tier 2 sponsorship for Bank positions.

Please note that we may close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of applicants.
