THE WHO, THE WHAT AND THE WHERE

Our client is a well established but more importantly, well respected dental practice located in the Northern suburbs. The owner is personable, down to earth and has built the business based on making sure every person who steps into the door, and sits down in the chair, is made to feel at ease and as comfortable as possible (unheard of right?) You’ll be part of a small team and this opportunity is only available because the person currently in the role, is going on a big adventure overseas.

WHAT’S INVOLVED?

It will be both a dental assistant role and reception work but do not fear, it won’t be at the same time. It’s 50/50 and there will be planned allocated time slots for the two positions. The reception side is all things meeting and greeting. This includes answering the phones, bookings and administration. The assistant role involves setting up the equipment, making sure everything is ready to go, general dentistry. Oh, and the occasional sympathetic smile and hand on the shoulder to let patients know you really do care.

The big plus for this role is; if you are willing to learn, they are willing to teach. And you’ll be finishing at 1 pm on Fridays, it doesn’t get much better than that.

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

You know your way around the dentist chair and the difference between a scaler and a curette. But what we’re really hunting for, is someone with a caring nature and gentle touch, to put all those nervous patients at ease and make the experience much better than what people are accustomed to. Essentially, you need to be the sunshine on a summer’s day. You will also need:

- A minimum of 2 years experience as a Dental Assistant
- A very high attention to detail
- A delicate and precise manner that can be sensed from the phone to the moment patients walk-in
- Solid organisational and time management skills
- The kind of customer service that gets you 5-star Google reviews
- Finesse and empathy

THIS SOUNDS PERFECT! WHERE DO I SIGN UP?

To get yourself to the top of the pile, include a cover letter addressed to Lauren Vocisano and include an answer to the question:
- Tell us your go-to line to put patients at ease.
