As a Navy Dentist, provide Navy personnel with the full range of dental services while enjoying:
- an excellent salary plus generous superannuation
- ongoing investment in your personal and career development
- free medical and dental
- a good work/life balance
- leadership training and vocational variety
- subsidised accommodation
- a supportive team environment
- travel and leave entitlements
- free access to sports and fitness facilities
- friendships that last a lifetime
All that plus meaningful experiences such as joining peacekeeping missions and supporting communities in need.
To be an effective force the Navy needs all its personnel to be fit and healthy, and that includes their dental health.
As a Navy Dentist you'll provide the full range of dental treatments to personnel at no cost to the patient, so treatment plans never have to be compromised for financial reasons. As an Officer you'll also be responsible for the training, welfare and discipline of the sailors under your command who make up your staff, so this is a leadership role too.
You'll be the type of person who works well in a team environment, and is not averse to moving around the country and occasionally abroad, sometimes at short notice. Your standards will be high and your work ethic strong.
The facilities you'll work in will range from large multi-dentist clinics offering the full range of general and specialist dental services, to single Dental Officer clinics at a base or on a ship. All are modern and fully equipped and supported by well-trained dental and clerical staff.
The opportunities for career progression in the Navy are based on clinical and management competency levels, and you may be given the opportunity for specialist postgraduate training.
- Fully-paid officer training
- Once trained, starting package approx. $97,000 p.a. plus superannuation
- Numerous other benefits
- Any Navy base in Australia
- You will be required to spend time at sea
- Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident
