    You’ll play a vital part, working closely alongside our dentists at our busy clinic. You’ll manage a variety of tasks, from making appointments to preparing clinic rooms and assisting the dentists chairside. This is a hands-on position, and you’ll need to be fit, focused and coordinated, as we hold instruments for long periods of time; clean the surgery rooms before, during and after patients leave; and ensure the patients receive the very best care possible.

    Further, to be successful in this position, you will be:

    • a team player with strong people skills;
    • an effective communicator fluent in written and spoken English;
    • trustworthy, and able to build strong relationships with our customers;
    • able to work in a fast-paced environment and always organised;
    • adept using computers, or willing to learn
    • willing to take direction, listen and reflect on feedback;
    • punctual and reliable;
    • a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident.

    No prior dental experience required. Full training will be provided.

    (Successful applicants must submit to a full NZ Police Vetting Check under the Vulnerable Children’s Act 2014.)

    What We Offer:

    • competitive salary;
    • friendly and supportive working environment;
    • training and professional development opportunities;
    • and, of course, dental care.

    Applications, including a CV and a Cover letter, can be emailed to Lye Funn Ng at or delivered to the dental clinic at 131 Clyde Street, Balclutha.

    A Job Description can also be provided on request via email.
