Salaried Primary Care Dentist - Band A

Fixed Term

30 hours per week (Hours can be negotiable)

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Dentist to join our friendly team in Staffordshire.


Our service is reaching out to people, many of whom have previously found it difficult to access dental care. We are continuing to meet the challenge of extending NHS dental access and providing continuing dental care for vulnerable individuals. This includes the provision of general anaesthetic and sedation services alongside dental public health roles.


Working within our team, you will be part of a caring and committed group providing high quality dental care to local people with a range of dental needs. A positive approach is essential as well as the ability to strike a rapport with people who may find dental services daunting. Our service offers an excellent clinical working environment operating from modern surgeries with dedicated computerised clinical information systems.


You will work as part of the team providing urgent care and routine treatment to patients who do not have access to NHS dentistry. There will be a variety of opportunities to develop interests in special care and paediatric dentistry including the provision of general anaesthesia and sedation together with the delivery of epidemiology.


All post holders must have current registration with the General Dental Council and be eligible to join the PCT's Dental Performers list.
