    Are you a dental practice owner requiring a locum dentist?




Need a locum dentist in Melbourne, Victoria? Click here to  send us an email and we will respond within 24 hours!
   

We are two experienced, professional dentists in Melbourne, Australia, specialising in fulfilling short-term locum/emergency dentist positions.

Do you own a dental practice? Require some short-term locums to fill vacancies due to maternity, sick leave or other reason? Or just requiring a bit of a break from those never-ending Saturday morning sessions that seem to eat up your precious weekend family time?

By being available to provide locum dentists at short notice for your dental practice, we can help you out for just one day, or for longer repeat sessions.

If you engage our services, we endeavour to turn up to your practice 15-20 mins prior to the first patient in order to familiarise ourselves with your staff, surgery layout, materials and admin process.

  • We will provide quality dentistry in your practice style, and are happy to follow any guidelines that you provide

  • We practice professional ethics in respecting the quality of prior treatment - we respect that as locum dentists, we may not have a full overview of your patients' past history

  • As experienced dentists, we have streamlined efficient processes that allow us to provide high quality, profitable and on-time service - but we don't attempt "risky" treatments that may have poor long-term outcomes simply to be busy.

  •  In general, as we are short-term providers in your practice, we will generally choose to minimise multiple-visit appointments such as endodontic and C&B procedures, but are happy to O&D/ temporise suitably so that you are able to continue this work on your return.

  • We will work with your available materials and equipments - definitely no need to make special material orders!

  • We will "hit the ground running" - we are able to adapt quickly to any operating environment and practice philosophy.
  • We have years of experience working with all staff and dealing with all kinds of patients. 


    Who are we?

Why employ us as locum dentists for your practice?

Shutting your practice, even for one day, is a huge cost to your business.

You still need to pay the rent, your equipment lease, staff wages even if no dentist is working!

Plus if there's no dentist in your practice, your existing patients may find a new dentist! Or new patients won't be seen, again choosing someone else!
