When you start work with The Dental Team Group, you will have a formal mentorship with a trained mentor during your first months. This will be with an experienced clinician who will guide you through your first experiences of working in the UK. They are dedicated to you to answer any questions you might have, provide in-the-moment advice, and support you in developing a portfolio that will allow you to get an NHS performer number.

Once you have an NHS performer number, you’ll be able to treat NHS patients as well as private paying patients. This will give you the reassurance of knowing you’ll always have a full diary, as well as giving you access to an NHS pension etc.
