Start with those that care

as much as you do

Congratulations!! You are nearly there and about to graduate.


We know it’s been one crazy journey and you have worked hard to get to this point.

Your learning doesn’t end now, but it really only begins with your next step. Weigh up your options carefully, make sure you choose someone to work for that aligns with your values and is as keen as you are. Here is a bit about The Dentists and what we believe in.

Here at The Dentists, we believe that oral health is fundamental for life long well-being. We take a holistic approach with care for the patient at the heart of everything we do and have knowledge to deliver better outcomes.

It’s Vital…Laugh, talk, eat, kiss, breathe

Mentoring at The Dentists

In order to help our graduates to get to a place of confidence and knowledge, we have built a strong graduate program. Our program has a few key pillars to success:

Mentor Relationship

Our mentors are highly qualified dentists with years of experience. More importantly, we know how to help you achieve your potential. Want to read more? Check out Meet The Team

The Team

The Team at The Dentists is part of why our graduate dentists love coming to work. Being surrounded by like-minded people that are keen to share their knowledge and experiences makes work a more fulfilling journey. Our team is a team of lifelong learners and mentors.

Teaching time

On top of the time a graduate spends with their mentor and with patients, our team has key times they get together to share and learn from each other. A weekly meeting to get the graduates together ensures the ability to ask questions and hear from others. Additionally, further development opportunities are given to learn from industry leaders.

Our Why

Every person or organisation has some deep seeded reason for their being.

This is known as their ‘why’. For example Steve Job’s was “Challenge the status quo”.

Here at The Dentists our “Why, How, What” is:


Oral health is fundamental for lifelong well-being.

It is not only important to know why we are doing what we do, but also ‘How’ we achieve it and ‘What’ we are doing to get our ‘Why’ out to the public.


Our knowledge, care and holistic approach deliver better outcomes.


Oral health care delivered at the highest quality across all practices, with care for the patient at the heart of everything we do.

We choose our graduate dentists based on whether they align with our values. We truly only want to employ staff that believe in this as much as we do. This gives us a joint compass to live by, and it is our goal to get a graduate dentist to a place where they feel confident to deliver on what we promise to our patients.
