Job opportunities

All positions on offer require an Australian-recognised qualification, but the Dental Board of Western Australia does normally grant up to three years of temporary registration for dentists working with the University who do not hold Australian-recognised degrees.

In general terms, the only overseas-trained dentists who are able to immediately register are those with a Bachelor degree obtained from the United Kingdom, Ireland or New Zealand. Overseas-trained dentists, hygienists and therapists should consult the Australian Dental Council's website for more information.

Dental clinic assistants must hold a Certificate IV in Dental Assisting from TAFE or an equivalent qualification.

Working hours are negotiable and can usually be constructed to suit the needs of employees with family responsibilities.

For further information please contact our General Manager, Mr John Cochrane.
