Orthodontist | Canberra

Tuggeranong Orthodontic Centre is a 4-surgery practice and has a real legacy in Canberra. Having been in operation for over 30 years it forms part of Maven Dental. Collectively we provide facilities and services to over 100 practices throughout Australia and engage more than 1450 people.

The opportunity

There’s a lot to do in this full-time role, currently consisting of 4 days per week. You’ll be taking over a full book of wonderfully loyal patients [averaging 30 per day], with the opportunity to build further upon that, bringing along even more patients 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’ll be practicing all round orthodontics and patients really vary, from the straightforward to complex cases. A large majority of patients come to the practice from word of mouth referrals and we see generations of the same families who have now become part of the Maven Dental family! 


The team at Tuggeranong is extremely close, and you will be welcomed from the day one.   

You will play an active part in keeping the cogs turning in the practice and you’ll understand that being a specialist 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

We’re looking for a seasoned orthodontist with at least 5 years’ experience to join our cohesive, tight-knit team, you’ll already have experience in a similar role and have exceptionally well-rounded orthodontic skills.

Along with traditional orthodontic solutions, if you were proficient in WIN Lingual orthodontic treatments this would be an added advantage.


You’ll be the type of orthodontist 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 orthodontist who knows how to create loyal, returning and referring patients!


What about the area?

The practice is in a great spot. Tuggeranong has a population of just over 85,000 and

is a family-oriented suburb with easy access to arterial roads, shopping centres, ample walking trails and nature reserves. The region is only a 20min drive to Canberra City, 1.5 hours to the South Coast, and 2.5 hours to the snow fields. Residents enjoy a sense of easy living knowing that everything they require is within an arm’s reach.


What we’re looking for in our NEW Dentist:


  • Your orthodontic skills are polished, and at a high industry standard;
  • You’ll have a current AHPRA registration and specialist orthodontic 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 orthodontist 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!;
