General Dentist

Work with us and be part of a world-class health service that actively embraces technology, training, teamwork and supports your career ambitions.

This is your opportunity to make a real and enduring difference to the FIELD landscape of North Western Queensland and contribute to our vision of creating:

Pathways to better health
for our North West communities.

North West Hospital and Health Service (NWHHS)

  • Unique locations, friendly communities
  • Regional, rural and remote $$$ incentives

Covering a region of approx. 300,000 km2 the NWHHS delivers effective, high quality, and accessible public hospital and healthcare services to the residents of the Outback communities within North Western Queensland and the Gulf of Carpentaria.

As an employer we focus on positive health outcomes for the people of our region and embrace innovative ways to achieve this and support our staff to flourish in their careers.

If you are finding the urban healthcare environment a little uninspiring, you will likely find substantial satisfaction in the challenge of a diverse casemix and meaningful community engagement on offer when working at regional, rural or remote facilities.

The benefits

Our HHS values professionalism, leadership capability, excellence and resilience in our staff. To attract top tier candidates we offer generous remuneration packages and employment benefits that include staff accommodation, regional/rural/remote $$$ incentives, salary sacrificing options, 17.5% recreational leave loading, up to 12.5% employer superannuation contribution, shift allowances, professional development assistance, flexible working arrangements, access to corporate discounts, and employee wellness and assistance programs.

The role

Our Dentists provide general practitioner oral health services to eligible clients at any oral health facility in the North West Hospital and Health Service, to support state-wide delivery of oral health services, and the achievement of targets in oral health treatment and prevention.

Mandatory requirements are a relevant tertiary degree qualification and appropriate registration/licences. Pre-employment screening, including criminal history checks and Vaccine Preventable Diseases (VPD) risk role compliance, will be conducted for the successful candidate.

The location

Mount Isa is a progressive industrial, commercial and tourist centre with a thriving mining industry forming the backbone of the community.

Affectionately referred to as "The Isa" by locals, this oasis in Northern West Queensland encompasses everything that is rugged Outback Australia. The city of Mount Isa is surrounded by the Selwyn Ranges on the banks of the Leichhardt River. To the north lies the isolated Gulf Country and Savannah: the south is home to the Channel Country: the east is rich in pastoral grasslands and in the west the Gateway to the Northern Territory.
