Newly Qualified Dentists
Stepping out of your foundation training and into the perfect starting role is easier said than done. What type of position is best for you? What UDA amount should you take? What development are you looking for?
It is questions like these that we get asked on a daily basis and as a result, we have come to see ourselves as specialists in assisting newly qualified dentists in finding the 'perfect' start to their career.
To help clinicians in this situation especially at this time of year, we have put together a list of opportunities that have everything a dentist needs, to give you the best possible kick start. Each opportunity has been assessed using the following criteria:
1) Clinical Freedom - This encompasses an extensive amount of factors but to help newly qualified dentists we looked at practices/ small groups and corporates that do not require you to churn through UDAs. Practices that have no rules over appointment times and no pressure based targets to hit. This gives you space to breathe and do only what you are comfortable with doing.
2) Skill Development - Progression is a key part of any position but to do so in dentistry requires an extensive amount of development through courses, training and experience. All the practices we have spoken with are more than happy to help further develop you by covering course costs, giving access to certain training modules you cannot simply go out and get yourself and all will help put in place specialist development modules to assist you in any area of dentistry you would like to focus on.
3) Clinical Support - One of the main questions we are asked by newly qualified dentists is, will I just be thrown in the deep end? Each of the practices we have chosen offers some of the greatest clinical support in the UK covering every aspect of your work to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that you are happy and comfortable with each part of your working day
4) Flexibility - The key main point that always comes up. Everything else could be perfect but it is the smaller details that make a big difference. The practices all incorporate an extensive amount of flexibility for their clinicians such as hour changes to fit around you, contract amendments to suit certain requirements and even material changes to match what you are used to.
As an agency we help practices across the UK and have hundreds of associate/ regional dentist opportunities available, but, to discuss what your requirements are and what you want to see from a practice, apply today and a friendly consultant will contact you to go through everything.
