The Position

An opportunity has arisen for an experienced, qualified, and registered dentist with the ability to work autonomously to join the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Tasmania community-based mobile dental team.

Flinders Island with its rugged coastlines and natural history. North West Tasmania with destinations to explore like The Nut in Stanley, the Tarkine Forest and everyone has heard of Cradle Mountain for good reason! On the East Coast you may be forced to stay and see some of the most magnificent blue water and whitest sand in the country.

It is likely you will get to see and experience more of Tasmania than most of the locals! All of this while improving health outcomes…………. but wait there is more!
