The Educational Supervisor: I have worked an associate dentist at Bridge Dental practice for 15 years. I qualified in 1988 from King's College London and I have recently completed an MSc in Advanced General Dental Practice (B'ham) 2017 and I have a PG Cert Med Education 2018. My particular interests are endodontics, Dahl concept and minimally invasive dentistry. I have been an ES since 2016.
The Practice: The practice opened in January 2003 accepting both NHS and Private patients. it was purpose built comprising of two floors with 5 modern treatment rooms. Each treatment room is computerised with R4 clinical software and R4 digital imaging software for intra oral cameras, intra oral radio-graphs and pan-oral. FD treatment rooms are located next to their ES's.
Patient numbers have grown at a steady rate from 0 to over 21,000 taking on an average of 100 new patients per month. FD's will be taking on previous FD recalls and new patients. This will allow them to gain clinical experience in all treatments to satisfactorily complete their e-portfolio.
We offer a great opportunity to consolidate, and extend your skills, at the start of hopefully a rewarding and fulfilling career.
Our practice offers an unusual opportunity to have a peer foundation dentist at the same practice.
