Below you will find some of the most common questions people ask when they’re thinking of joining us as a locum dentist – and our answers. You can also check out our general FAQs here.

I’m interested in working for you as a locum dentist. What’s the procedure and how does it work in terms of bookings?

We do have locum opportunities for dentists – our locums might be covering illness or parental leave in a practice, and we also have some extended opportunities if we’re waiting to fill a vacancy. Our locums deliver the same high-quality patient care as our permanent dentists, and integrate seamlessly into our practices so that our patients always feel reassured and comfortable. Locum dentists undergo the same interview process as our permanent associates, including a clinical interview assessment.
