Dental careers at the Royal Devon

 Are you looking for a new opportunity, providing excellent clinical care within an innovative Trust that is consistently ranked top in the country for staff satisfaction? If so, we would love to hear from you.

You will have the opportunity to take part in the full range of activities undertaken by the Salaried Dental Service and Devon wide community dental clinics. The Devon Salaried Dental Service operates within seven locations based across Exeter, East, Mid and North Devon and provides care for patients with a wide variety of special needs, as well as providing a dental access service for those members of the community who have been unable to access treatment with an NHS General Dental Practitioner.

This gives you the opportunity to make a real difference to the communities we serve.

What is it like to work at the Royal Devon?

What is it like to work at the Royal Devon?

The Royal Devon is a newly formed Trust supporting a population of more than 615,000 across more than 2,000 square miles of North, East and West Devon. The scale of operation brings opportunities to establish and develop innovative new services to better meet the needs of our patients.

We enjoy close links with other healthcare trusts such as Musgrove Park in Taunton and the University Hospital Trust Plymouth. This close relationship means that our colleagues are able to enjoy working across Devon, a high degree of autonomy and faster progression whilst still having access to support, teaching and specialist interest or research opportunities.

The Royal Devon has received significant capital investment over the past 12 months which has allowed the implementation of a single electronic patient record (EPR) across the Trust.

Location and relocation

Location and relocation

We are fortunate to be based in the beautiful South West of England and you can choose between the hustle and bustle of the city of Exeter, the rolling moors of Exmoor or the stunning beaches of North Devon. Schools, further education colleges and the University of Exeter are good or outstanding, crime rates are low, and transport links and infrastructure investment are also excellent. We can offer you temporary accommodation to support a visit and a relocation package should you choose to come to Devon.
