Investing in you and your working environment
You can look forward to working at a practice dedicated to offering patients the very best by investing in in-house staff CPD and peer review through the year, as well as the latest technology, which includes SOE EXact software, digital radiography, intra-oral cameras and rotary endodontics.
Clinical training and dento-legal support
You can join our experienced clinicians across a range of specialities that we offer, including implants, orthodontics, oral surgery and conscious sedation, through dedicated mentoring. Plus, you'll have the opportunity to participate in accredited Research e.g. Choice Clinical Trial alongside QUB and University of Liverpool.
With our ongoing support and training, you can avoid unnecessary risks and patient complaints. And should a complaint arise, you'll have our in-house dento-legal expertise to lean on for support and reassurance.
A breadth of skills development
Private work, NHS work, business skills and patient communication will all be part of your comprehensive training, alongside support and encouragement for you to further your career e.g. through pursuing post-graduate studies or Dental Foundation Training as an Educational Supervisor.
We even have a strategic collaboration with the College of Medicine and Dentistry and Ulster University teaching an MSc in Advanced General Dental Practice.
Prioritising your safety and wellbeing
Your safety is our priority, which is why we provide full COVID precautions, including mechanical surgery ventilation, as well as automated computerised COVID-19 screening ahead of patient appointments.
But it isn't just your physical health we look out for, we also care about your mental health. That's why we have an in-house mental wellbeing programme, Keep Smiling.
