Life with us – in bite-sized snippets

This site should have covered everything you need to make a decision about whether we’re right for you, and you’re right for us. But there are some questions that tend to crop up more often than others during the recruitment process. We’ve listed them all here, but if you still have something you’d like to ask us, please get in touch with us at [email protected].

I’m looking for a new challenge, but don’t want to leave my current practice completely. Could you accommodate that?

Absolutely, we have part-time opportunities available for all of our clinical roles, so you can work for Bupa Dental Care and continue working at your current practice.

I have a young family so would be restricted in terms of the hours I could do. Are there any opportunities that would suit me?

Working hours and shift patterns vary from practice to practice, we often have a range of shift patterns and hours available so it’s worth speaking to a member of the recruitment team to see if there are any opportunities that work for you.

I’m a student. Do you have any part-time or temporary roles that I could fit around my studies?

We often have part-time Receptionist vacancies available and if you’re a qualified Dental Nurse we can often accommodate part-time hours.

Do you run any apprenticeships, and if so, what are the requirements?

We run apprenticeships for Dental Nurses and Lab Technicians/ Assistants. We cover the cost of your training so it’s a really great way to learn whilst earning. We generally ask that you have a C+ in GCSE English and Maths or equivalent. If you don’t have these grades we will ask you to complete a quick online test. You can find out more about our apprenticeships here.


I don’t have any specific experience in dentistry, but I’d like to work in one of your practices. Are you likely to have any suitable roles?

You don’t need to have dental experience for non-clinical roles at Bupa Dental Care. We’re looking for what we can’t teach….passion, enthusiasm and authenticity!

We’re a healthcare company but we run at the pace of a retailer so we often look for candidates with previous retail experience for management roles.
