Dentist – Linden Cottage

We’re looking for an Associate for our lovely Linden Cottage practice, in Ashington, Newcastle.

This 4 surgery practice is a long standing and respected family practice on the west side of Ashington. The practice is a former GP practice housed in an attractive period residence and set in lawned gardens.

The practice is very well equipped with comprehensive rotary endo, high quality materials, on site access to specialised dental referrals for endodontics, oral surgery, facial aesthetics and adult Ortho.

It is a mixed practice with a long standing NHS list of loyal patients, private fee per item and Denplan patients which is currently managed by a strong aspirational team of experienced and younger dentists.

The practice also has an NHS orthodontic list which is managed by our specialist orthodontist team.

The incoming associate would enjoy the benefits of being part of the broader Riverdale family with access to an extensive professional development programme with in house courses, longitudinal educational programmes, mentorship and excellent clinical support and leadership to support and develop skills of aspirational dentists.

The vacant role has come available due to the private growth over the past year as private conversion have been easy to accommodate. The incoming clinician will have the same scope to manage the established list while exploring the many private opportunities the practice has.

The role will be 0.4 FTE, working Mondays and Fridays.

There is easy parking outside and excellent transport links to Newcastle.
