At mydentist we continue to significantly invest in providing the best environment possible for our Dentists from our state-of-the-art training academy to modern practices with new chairs and equipment. Join our community of dental professionals and you’ll receive all the support you need to focus on providing clinical excellence. Your practice, regional and national teams will take care of all the administration and other distractions, so you can continually develop your skills and look after your NHS and private patients.

We have an Associate Dentist role available in our Fowler Street Practice (South Shields, NE33 1PD) and the details are:

  • Vacancy start date - available now *start date will be once performer number and conditions are issued
  • UDA Target - 6,000 UDAs

 Fowler Street Dental Practice is a seven chair practice with modern surgeries, bright colours and very spacious surroundings. Our dental chairs are also a modern design with models ranging from planmeca to Belmont, all fully functional. We have digital x-rays at the practice which work with phosphor plate system. Having digital x-rays means that processing, copying and viewing image is a quick and simple process.


The practice currently has four dental nurses, three of the nurses have been qualified for over 5 years and all gained their qualification at Newcastle Dental Hospital. We also have a trainee nurse who is due to qualify within the next couple of months. Our practice manager is a qualified nurse and splits time managing working in surgery and on reception. At present we have 1 receptionist and 1 cleaner.


We have a small team at the moment with three Dentist and two Therapists. Two of the dentists are both associates, one of which has been here for 10 years and the third is currently under ORE mentorship program due to complete in November. Our two Therapists work very closely with the Dentists in practice but both also offer direct access. The team have a good working relationship and we like to extend this to new people joining the practice. Visitors to the practice always mention how nice the atmosphere is in the practice.


We offer sedation within the practice doing both IV and RA sedation treating both adults and children. This service means we can refer internally for sedation which minimises waiting times from hospital.


Fowler Street Dental Practice is in South Shields town centre near to the main bus station, metro station, ferry landing, post office and shopping centre. Not only is the practice in the prime travelling location for staff and patients, it is also situated not far from the beach meaning a nice location for lunch by the beach. Aside from being in prime location for public transport, there is also a large car park behind the practice, this is a paid car park however the day rate is very reasonable.

Fowler Street is a small team with a big building and a big vision for the future. We would love to see our small team extended to offer our patients old and new a first class service.
