Hygienist / Therapist


your ideal job is now available...

We are looking for a friendly, outgoing Hygienist or Hygienist/Therapist to join the practice for one or two days a week, starting shortly.

1st-Impressions.dental philosophy is firmly based in prevention, with an active preventive dental plan. Periodontal health is reviewed for every patient, on every visit. Self-funding patients are recalled for OH reinforcement every six months and plan patients every four.

Under our preventive plans, you are free to set reviews and recalls appropriate to each patient's needs, as all periodontal treatment is free at the point of delivery.

We routinely check patients' brushing and everybody goes away from an examination with a goody bag containing a brush, mirror and disclosing tablets. Patients have a full six-point periodontal attachment check and routine radiography to assess bone levels.

Where professional cleaning is indicated, it is carried out with air scalers (under local anaesthetic, if necessary). Sedation is also available.

We encourage children to attend every four months and carry out oral hygiene instruction, fluoride application and fissure sealing as necessary in accordance with national guidelines.

Your working conditions will be excellent, with new equipment and well-trained staff. Appointments are typically 30 or 45 minutes and you will have full clinical support and assistance.

There is free staff parking. The practice is open from 8:30 to 4:30 Monday to Friday. You can choose your own working days and hours within reason.

You must be registered with the General Dental Council and current with CPD requirements as set out in Continuing professional development for dental professionals in the context of the GDC Standards.

A DBS certificate is required.

We would prefer someone who is self-employed, however we will consider employed status and providing assistance with registration, CPD and DBS certification.

The ability to carry out, or the desire to acquire, extended duty skills (therapy/child conservation, local anaesthetic, impressions, radiographs) would be an advantage.

If you are reliable, cheerful and competent and interested in working in an environment that rewards excellence while improving your skills, please send your CV to admin@1st-impressions.dental 

If you require any further information or would like to talk in confidence, please ring 07983 717223. We look forward to hearing from you.
