About the practice and role:

  • This locum position is for 3 – 6 months, working 4 days per week with no weekends

  •  Our 5-surgery practice currently consists of one periodontist, two paediatric dentists, two oral health therapists and a team of 10 support staff, all of whom are focused on delivering an excellent standard of clinical treatment and patient care.
  • We are highly focused on providing the tools and education to assist our patients with great long-term dental health
  •  Our periodontist specializes in conservative and surgical treatment of gum disease including cosmetic procedures and implants

  • We can give you the tools and resources to set you up for success
  • Our communication is open, honest and collaborative
  • The practice operates across three locations including Melbourne CBD, Dandenong and Bendigo - so some travel required
  • We will support relocation when needed - because we’re nice like that.

About you:

  • Ideally seeking an experienced periodontist to join our cohesive, tight-knit team
  • Your skills are polished and to a high industry standard
  • You’ll be the type of specialist who is warm, confident and approachable
  • Confident 
  • High levels of EQ
