You will provide clinical and educational care in the community, including prevention, fillings and treatment for periodontal (gum) disease. Strong communication skills and the ability to work well in a team are essential. You will receive a thorough understanding in all aspects of dental care including the latest in practical skills and procedures. Delivered from our purpose-built dental buildings in Inverness, Stornoway and Dumfries, you will have access to state-of-the-art equipment and a highly skilled team of clinical and academic staff.
