Role Description

We are looking for an associate dentist to join our existing friendly team. We welcome applications from all dentists no matter your level of experience. What is most important for us is that you have good patient and clinical skills and that you look after our patients.  

Our preference would be for an associate who can work 2-5 days a week however if you can only offer 1 day a week then we would still encourage you to apply given the high demand from patients we are currently experiencing.
Understandably we would prefer a permanent dentist, however, we would also welcome applications from associates who are looking for something that is flexible or on a short-term basis e.g. for a 2-6 month period as we do have associates on maternity leave at the moment.

NHS and UDA targets - we do not set targets for UDAs for associates to achieve and think it better that you work at a pace that works well for you. We are a large practice and have sufficient UDAs available to meet your expectations. UDAs will be paid at a competitive rate and we aim to meet your UDA rate remuneration expectations. NHS / Private and lab fees are shared on a 50/50 basis.  


NHS and Private split - some of our team have earned up to 50% from private treatments. We encourage associates to give patients both NHS and Private treatment options where appropriate. The practice has been here for 90 years. You will take over an existing list and the practice is also accepting some new patients.

About the Practice and Team
We are a large team - with 12 dentists, 4 hygienists, 16 nurses, 3 receptionists and a full-time practice manager. We do have an Oral surgeon and we accept complex oral surgery referrals from within our practice other practices. The practice has large well equipped modern surgeries, we use Carestream R4 software with integrated digital notes and radiographs. Rooms are all airconditioned and we have a large garden at the rear for breaks. There is free parking in the area, we are well served by buses (there is a bus stop outside the practice), tram, overground and rail (Norwood Junction & East Croydon). We have recently brought in an Invisalign / i-Tero digital scanner and training will be available to the new team member. The practice has a new high definition digital OPG. For dentists who are also interested in facial aesthetics we have a Skin-Pen and would be supportive to an associate wanting to also offer these services alongside dentistry to patients. The working environment at the practice is friendly and professional. We are a busy practice, and you will find that the day passes quickly and pleasantly. We have an open door, collegiate working environment and colleagues do help one another offering advice. We are a training practice and currently have 2 dental graduate foundation dentists - so standards at the practice are maintained at a high level.  


Holidays - we are amenable to associates taking more than average time off during the year for holidays, personal time and training/educational reasons - all we request is that your patients are looked after by you and that notice is given.

Our address is The Family Dental Practice, 262 Portland Road, South Norwood, SE25 4SL.
