Locum Dentist Jobs

Summer is just around the corner, make it one to remember! 

We have a number of locations across the country which are up for locum opportunities towards the end of the year, and we’re seeking expressions of interest from experienced clinicians.

What’s the benefit of a locum? You’ve heard the saying ‘a change is as good as a holiday’. Well, we say a working holiday is even better! If you're after a change of scenery, you can work in a location of your choice while immersing yourself in the great outdoors, hiking a trail, visiting a new coast, taking a weekend road trip and creating new memories. Many of our practices are situated in locations boasting world-class food, wine and music as well as a vibrant arts scene and culture.

We have short-term and long-term locums on offer. Speak to us today and see how we can make this summer one to remember.
