About the Role

We are seeking an experienced dentist to join our team in our modern and busy Broome Dental Practice. This position will suit someone with a desire to live in a remote town and/or wanting a “Broome Time” lifestyle at this desirable travel destination. Broome is only a short flight from Perth and Darwin. Broome is a growing and vibrant regional centre with cafes, restaurants and the famous sunset walks on Cable Beach. While Broome is best known as the Gate Way to the Kimberleys, Broome is a growing hub for offshore development and many tourist and other industrial ventures. 

Our practice is focused on “Kind and Compassionate” dentistry and we provide the highest quality services in a caring and gentle manner. Your days will be challenging with a wide range of cases. You will join a team with the current Principal Dentist, who is transitioning to a part time role, and a therapist /hygienist in the smaller second surgery. We provide a comfortable, casual and calming environment with modern equipment including digital x-ray & OPG, Kavo chair inc integrated monitor & intra-oral camera, class B autoclaves, rotary endo and ceiling mounted monitors for patient entertainment.

Experience & Skills
