We operate an open-door policy, encouraging our FD to come to us for help and advice. At various points in the year our FDs will spend a bit of time nursing for the trainers, and vice versa; past FDs have found this to be very helpful. We try to ensure that FDs leave with a clear understanding and appreciation of teamwork. We aim to give FDs a gentle start to the year to enable them to get to grips with treatment planning, while getting used to their new surgery and software etc in a supportive low-pressure environment.
We wish to provide ethical, good quality dental care with a considerate approach, encouraging preventative techniques and putting the patient at ease with a laugh or two along the way. We wish for someone with a similar outlook to join us.
We would strongly encourage you to try to arrange a visit to the practice if you are interested in coming here or if this is not possible a virtual meeting with the trainers. Should you have any questions then please email Carl on carl.fullaway@nhs.net or contact us on the above number during working hours.
