Dentistry in New Zealand – a rewarding career awaits.

New Zealand remains a popular destination for UK Clinicians, with a steady stream of people enjoying both working holiday/ locum experiences and permanent lifestyle relocations.

Lumino The Dentists are the largest network – with over 125 practices (including 9 dedicated Specialist practices) and there is  a wide range of options for individuals considering their next career move.


Below are just a couple of regions/ locations and what they have to offer:

Northland: often described as the "winterless north" this is a beautiful, untouched paradise. You'll enjoy undertaking a wider range of dental treatments in rural locations, and for individuals who like the chance to give back to communities, Northland will offer a network of practices and peers, with variety, challenge and the chance to make a difference in the communities you support.

Northland: Dargaville – an insight into rural dentistry.

Auckland Region: spanning the beaches of the North Shore, the Central and CBD, communities in East and South Auckland, through to the lush farmland of wider Auckland, this is a large region with something for everyone. We have a number of high-end cosmetic dentistry centric practices, specialist practices, and even family dentists in this large region.

Waikato/Bay of Plenty: From Hot Water Beach, through to Hamilton City - this area of the country is a popular lifestyle location. The Bay of Plenty region is centred around beautiful beaches that hug the coastline, whilst the Waikato is a lush and verdant heartland of farming and agriculture - with the mid-size cities of Hamilton and Rotorua offering plenty to see and do this is an excellent region for relocation.

Taranaki: Nestled under Mt Taranaki New Plymouth is home to several Lumino practices, and Taranaki is truly like no other. Lifestyle, affordability, a smaller city that is home to WOMAD and hosts international acts, with outdoor accessibility for hiking, surfing and a short drive to the mountain in ski season.

Manawatu: in the beautiful lower North Island, Manawatu is bordered by mountain ranges, sweeping west coast beaches, sprawling farmland and the Manawatu River. This region has it all - flourishing rural villages, the bustling townships of Feilding to the urban city of Palmerston North.

South Island: Hailed as one of the most beautiful places in the world, and home to "middle earth" - the South Island of New Zealand is vast and breath-taking with a wide array of locations and regions to consider.

From sunny Nelson, through to the famous wine regions of Marlborough and Central Otago - the South Island of New Zealand offers a quality of life unlike anywhere in the world. Lumino is represented in the cities and towns throughout the South Island, no matter how "rural" you are, you're never more than a short flight to bustling cities, or the food and wine festivals synonymous with the region.

For individuals wishing to relocate there are both locum and permanent options – and as Lumino are an accredited employer we are able to offer visa sponsorship.
