Are you a skilled and experienced dental assistant looking for part time or casual work?
Are you passionate about working with the local community to enhance oral health?
Would you love to work on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula and take a lunch time walk to the beach (who wouldn’t?!)?
We have multiple part time and casual opportunities now available within Bellarine Community Health’s dental team based in Point Lonsdale. Apply now and you could join our dynamic, collaborative, and friendly dental team.
About the region
The Bellarine Peninsula is a short 30-minute drive from Geelong, ‘where the weekends are a little longer and the flavours a little fresher’. A perfect mix of sleepy coastal towns and reinvented urban precincts, on your way to work you will pass wineries, beaches, and a sheep or two.
Bellarine Community Health (BCH) is the major provider of primary health care services to the Bellarine Peninsula. BCH is a not-for-profit health care provider with close links to our community operating from five sites – in Drysdale (two sites), Ocean Grove, Point Lonsdale and Portarlington and in community settings across the Bellarine.
BCH delivers a broad scope of health services and wellbeing programs for all people in our diverse communities.
