What better time than now to come and join our vibrant and friendly Community Dental Team here in beautiful Somerset.

We are delighted to further our ability for skill-mixed teams and extend an invite to qualified Dental Therapists to join our Consultant-led Special Care Dentistry and Paediatric Dentistry work.

Our services are large enough to make your work variable and interesting, yet are small enough to make the experience of working here greatly satisfying and personal to you.

Main duties of the job

You will work as part of a team to provide care for our service users, those patients with dental needs outside of general dental practice (GDP) care, as well as a variety of work including domiciliary, urgent care and minor oral surgery.

Your new colleagues are in place and waiting for you: whether you are starting out, are already experienced, or just looking for that special workplace which makes a huge difference to people's lives and is somewhere to call your work home.

As a new team-mate and individual colleague, you will be very well supported in every aspect of your role. We have empowered teams, experienced line management and exceptional clinical supervision with exciting opportunities for continued professional development
