Full Time

Dentist

Description

We are looking for TWO graduate dentists to join our team of 7 dentists in beautiful Launceston, TAS!!

Our 2 award-winning practices are equipped with more than just digital x-rays – We have multiple CEREC units, CBVTs, 3D printers, digital planning software, a photographic studio set up, lasers with a commitment to continue investing in our equipment. We have just finished building an 8 chair, state of the art practice and have implemented many more things that I as a clinician would want my practice to have.

Practicing in a larger location also means that there will be more clinicians around to bounce ideas off and also a greater sense of camaraderie as you are not expected to be the only clinician in a practice out in whoopwhoop where the boss is 4h away (or worse, interstate…).

We offer the full breadth of dental procedures including cosmetic dentistry, full mouth rehabs, soft tissue grafts, implants and ortho. We also do surgical 8s to a very high level and you can see our clinical cases page for some indication of the sort of work we do at Prospect Family Dental Clinical Cases on Facebook. We expect that your focus in the first few years will be to do good, solid work as well as to build your communication skills such that patients are able to get the treatment they deserve. We will certainly help you get there. More than that – We offer the right candidate an opportunity to work in a friendly and supportive environment where hard work is recognised and rewarded.

Patient comfort and quality care are the primary focus of the practice. We are always investing in new equipment, training our staff to be better, asking ourselves how we can do better and provide a higher level of care for our patients. As part of our dynamic team, close mentoring will be available to you.We expect this position to have full books and you will be hired on this basis:

  • Year 1. $55/hr + super (Hourly) - we expect you to earn $110,000 in your first year with the hours on offer.
  • Year 2. Salary with bonus based on billings with total possible remuneration inclusive of super up to $180,000 as an Employee
  • Year 3: Salary with bonus based on billings with total possible remuneration inclusive of super up to $240,000 as an Employee

Year 4+: SFA with a sliding scale of up to 55% depending on billings.

Our offering is structured in this manner to ensure that our dentists are able to focus on becoming a great clinician in the first few years without much billing pressures. This also allows us to focus on building your books and giving you as busy as we can in the first couple of years. We have a consistent history of filling our books from great systems and marketing. Our grad dentists typically say that they’ve got too many patients so a lack of work should not be an issue. This is also structured because we want to have a long-term relationship with our associate dentists to ensure that they are able to take the time that one needs to become a solid clinician.

More than that, We also offer the right candidate an opportunity to work in a friendly and supportive environment where hard work is recognised and rewarded. Patient comfort and quality care are the primary focus of the practice. We are always investing in new equipment, training our staff to be better, asking ourselves how we can do better and provide a higher level of care for our patients.As part of our dynamic team, close mentoring will be available to you. Our dentists do a lot of CE and will be more than happy to share clinical tips and knowledge with the right candidate. We have also arranged for bespoke CE courses where we've brought respected dentists/specialists from other cities to Launceston to run customised CE courses for our dentists.

We understand that 2020 has been a disruptive year for everyone and you might not get the clinical experience that you should have at this stage of your career. We will get you patients and we will build you up to be a great clinician. All we ask is a great attitude. Everything else we can and will teach. We have had multiple new/young grads join our team over the years and know what a graduate dentist struggles with and what we need to focus on. We have come up with an onboarding/mentoring pathway which we've refined over the years. Each of our dentists also has a different interest and we try to accomodate it as much as possible.

If you are already practicing we will also welcome your resume! Your remuneration will be negotiated based on your experience and what you bring to the team.
