Blacklion Pet Hospital (Greystones, Co Wicklow) have a position available for an enthusiastic colleague willing to help our practice grow in the coming decade. We offer a varied caseload, and no two days are the same. We are rebuilding our practice with a fully equipped iM3 dental suite (provision for CT) being installed. If you have or are studying for a further qualification in dentistry and willing to take on a referral caseload we would be especially interested.
Our ethos is based on preventative healthcare, high standards of care, great customer service and client continuity. We want to make sure that you have time to follow up on cases and spend more time with your patients, so we run 15-minute consultations. There will be an equal share of consulting and operating.
Rota: Full time (4-4.5 day week, 1 Saturday morning in 4) or part-time options available. No OOH, last appointment 5.30pm.
Very attractive remuneration package including bonus scheme.

Our facilities include, but are not limited to, a dedicated surgical suite, in-house labs, digital radiography, dopler, and ultrasound. We aim to provide the best possible client and patient care, and our facilities reflect this.
