Orthodontist wanted: New Zealand

New Zealand is an incredibly beautiful country to live and work in, where you’ll find untamed wilderness and plenty of diverse culture.

There is plenty of potential to grow and in the future to buy this practice.

2. You
You’ll be an experienced and technically sound Orthodontist who has a positive, professional and approachable attitude. It’s important that you have excellent communciation, listening and interpersonal skills and you’re confident to plan and discuss treatment plans and options with our patients.

" Where else in the world can you work with great staff, in a well equipped surgery and right on the beach. The views are fantastic and so  relaxing. A lunchtime walk on the beach or surf. I love my times at KT Orthodontics.”
