About the employer

Forget everything you know about the dentist. That's not us. Our clients tell us we're a bit like that long-time friend who you could go months without speaking to, yet when you reconnect it feels like no time has passed at all. It's much more 'comfy cafe' than 'going to the dentist'. The sort of place where music is playing and you might just catch a team member singing or dancing. Because we take our dentistry seriously, but definitely not ourselves.
