Application Process

Wherever in the world you’ve qualified, you’ll find the perfect environment in which to grow and develop your skills here. And the process to join us couldn’t be simpler:

It starts with a telephone conversation with one of our Clinical Resourcing Specialists

Whether you’ve met us at an event in your country, in the UK or have applied for a role directly, our dedicated Overseas Clinical Resourcing Specialist will identify your specific requirements and find the perfect role to suit you. They’ll ask you what sort of contract you’d like, the type of practice you want to work in, what your long-term career objectives are and how we can support you with them. They’ll then shortlist suitable roles and arrange for you to visit the practices which are the best match for you.

A clinical telephone discussion comes next

Your Clinical Resourcing Specialist will arrange for a Clinical Support Manager to call you at a convenient time to discuss your clinical experience. This is also a chance for you to ask any questions you might have and talk one to one with a clinical colleague. The call usually takes about half an hour. If you’re already in the UK, a practice visit will also be organised. If not, we’ll arrange for a skype or telephone call, so you can meet your future practice team.

The offer

If you’re successful, we’ll make you a formal offer. At this point, your Clinical Resourcing Specialist will put you in touch with one of our Resourcing Support Advisors. They’ll collect all of your compliance details and arrange for you to attend an induction, where you’ll meet fellow clinicians, who are also new to mydentist.

NHS LAT Compliance

Based on where you’ve accepted a role, your NHS Local Area Team (LAT) will also carry out an ID check. You might have to provide some more compliance information for this and for a panel or Dental Advisor to approve you. Please be aware this could take up to 9 months.

Relocation

As well as receiving support from your Resourcing Support Advisor, we have a dedicated Relocation Manager. They’ll help you to find a home to live in, set up a bank account, get a UK National Insurance number, if you need one, and make sure you and your family settle into UK life.

Induction programme

Our 3 day induction programme takes place at the world-class mydentist Academy in Manchester. It covers CPR, CQC, best practice and how to get the most from your career with us.

And now, you’re ready to start in practice

This is where your future begins. During your first week, you’ll benefit from a practice orientation and really get to know the team. You’ll also meet and receive further support from the regional team, including the Clinical Support Manager and Clinical Director.
