Join Our Team
We have a wonderful work family at Portmore. It’s quite a big team of 22 but it feels very close; we support each other and spend a lot of time laughing and working hard to make a difference in our patients’ lives.
Each member of the team is committed to excellence in their field, whether that’s delivering exceptional customer service at the front desk or achieving outstanding clinical results in our surgeries. We are developing our skill sets all the time, and it’s our commitment to ongoing training that makes the difference.
The clinical team members have attended training courses in the US and around Europe, and as a business we are serious about investing in our staff so that they can up-skill and raise the standard of care at Portmore. We are always learning and finding new ways to improve, and that’s why the Portmore team is at the forefront of what we do. Read more
We’re always looking for dentists, nurses and support staff who share our commitment to patient-centric care with no compromises. Want to join the team that’s creating the best patient experience? Please email your CV and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
