Careers

Associate Dentist | Weipa

The opportunity
There’s a lot to do in this role. You’ll be taking over a good book of wonderfully loyal customers, with the opportunity to build further upon that, bringing along even more customers to the practice’s portfolio and of course, retaining them. Aside from that, you’ll be coming into a very friendly, established and cohesive team who are all exceptional at what they do.

You will play an active part in keeping the cogs turning in the practice and you’ll understand that being a dentist isn’t an easy role [we completely understand this too!] but you’ll be up for the challenge anyway. You’ll have the comfort in knowing that you have the support & backing of one of the most successful dental groups in the business behind you every step of the way.

 

About You
As we’re looking for a seasoned Dentist to join our cohesive, tight-knit team you’ll already have experience in a similar role. You will have exceptionally well-rounded dentistry skills and perhaps, you might even have an interest in things like [Ortho, Implants, Endo, Oral surgery] too. We can happily support you in making your interests in these areas a reality.

You’ll be the type of dentist who is warm, confident and approachable. People feel comfortable telling you their oral concerns, and you approach them through a positive, wellness-focused lens and a real sense of optimism.

Your attitude to patient care will be second to none – you’re known for the way you handle patients and we’re imagining that you’re the kind of Dentist who knows how to create loyal, returning and referring patients!

 

What about the area?
Weipa is a coastal mining town. It’s a vibrant and sustainable coastal community of approximately 4,000 people, located on Albatross Bay on the west coast of Cape York Peninsula, in the Gulf of Carpentaria. The township sits around 200km from Australia’s northern tip and about 800km from Cairns by road (or 500km by air which takes 1hr 45minutes). Despite the distance from other major cities, the Weipa township contains most of the facilities and conveniences of modern living making it ideal for those that like rural & remote locations.

Rich in both natural beauty and cultural heritage, this region of the western Cape York Peninsula features stunning beaches, unspoiled wilderness and unrivaled fishing making Weipa the ideal base to explore the Cape’s many attractions.

 

What we’re looking for in our NEW Dentist:

  • Your dentistry skills are polished, and at a high industry standard;
  • Ideally, you may have a specialist interest in either [Ortho, Endo, and Implants;]
  • You’ll have a current AHPRA registration with no restrictions;
  • You’re an articulate communicator, and you’re someone who has the innate ability to build rapport and trust quickly with your patients;
  • You’re a confident dentist with high levels of EQ and a proven track record of success in a similar role; And 
  • You are committed to providing an outstanding patient-led service

 

So, why work for us?

 You’ll receive assistance from a highly experienced support function that will look after your Finance, Payroll, HR, IT, Marketing & Recruiting headaches – essentially freeing you up to do what you do best!

  • We’ll invest in you and your career - we love helping our people grow!;
  • You’ll work in an established practice with a team who genuinely love what they do;
  • We’ll provide you with on-going, up-to-date education opportunities;
  • We can give you the tools and resources to set you up for success;
  • Our communication is open, honest and collaborative;
  • You’ll have the support you need so you can focus on what you love and what you’re good at; And
  • We will support relocation when needed - because we’re nice like that.
