The Opportunity:

A unique opportunity to join a modern, supportive, fully private, non-corporate practice in the beautiful coastal Cornish town of Falmouth. The practice is located a 10 minute walk from Gyllyngvase beach and has a huge local demand for treatment, which will provide a superb earning potential.

You will be working in a brand new, state of the art, highly equipped surgery with a Zeiss operating microscope, iTero 5D scanner, Aquacut, Start-X rotary endo, Elements free obturation, digital SLR camera, speed increasing handpiece, and digital phosphor plate radiographs. You would also have the support of a highly skilled therapist, hygienist, endodontist, and implantologist. You will be one of three general dentists.

The principal dentist has an MSc in Endodontics so there would be an opportunity to avoid providing root canal treatment if desired.

We will provide you with the opportunity, time, equipment, and materials to enhance your career and skills, while providing the best dentistry you can. We will also support you in maintaining a healthy work-life balance. In return we need you work to support our reputation, treat our patients well, and maintain a very high standard of dental care.



Will be competitive and depend on the materials you require, additional equipment, postgraduate qualifications, and experience.



As a minimum you will need an approved degree in dentistry as well as a GDC registration. Further qualifications, special interests or specialisms would be an advantage. We would expect significant experience of restorative work under rubber dam.

We would also like to see evidence of postgraduate certificates and qualifications.



You should have a portfolio to demonstrate the quality of your clinical techniques reflecting your experience and outcomes.



We work a 2 shift day Monday to Thursday. The morning shift runs from 8am till 1:45pm and the afternoon shift from 2pm till 7:45pm. This enables you to get nearly 6 hours of clinical time per day while also providing you with an excellent work/life balance. There will be ample opportunity for additional shifts should you want them. We work a single 8am till 5:30pm shift on Fridays.

Your shifts will be:

Tuesday 8am - 1:45pm

Wednesday 2pm – 7:45pm

Thursday 2pm – 7:45pm

Friday 8am - 5:30pm

Total: 26.25 clinical hours per week
