Applications

Dentist Applications

Antwerp Dental Group welcomes applications from associates who are seeking to either start their associate career in general practice or follow a career in private dentistry.

Post Foundation Dentists

Dentists who are new to primary care dentistry are issued with a sensible UDA target and automatically enrole on Antwerp Dental Academy’s mentoring programme. This programme helps young dentists develop a healthy mix of NHS and Private Dentistry.

Private Dentists

Experienced dentists who either have a special interest , or who wish to develop a private general practice career are placed in a practice where there is scope for private services. It is sometimes necessary to provide a mix of NHS and private dentistry for a while while a private list is developing.

To enable private dentists to establish presence quickly, the practice organises :

  1. A set of carefully constructed web pages that will inform patients of the new dentist’s special interests and skills.
  2. a google-ads campaign for generating new leads for the dentist until he/she has a steady stream of private patients

Dentists with Conditions

We are one of the few practices in England who run a bespoke training academy for Dentists who are subject to conditional inclusion on the dental performer’s list. We work closely with the Local Area Team (LAT)  to discharge conditions for inclusion on the dental performers list. We do this by a similar mentoring model to Foundation Dentistry :

  1. Overall support from our Training Director, Raj Wadhwani
  2. Bespoke day to day clinical support from a designated  and approved clinical mentor
  3. A weekly training programme involving lectures and practicals from various clinicians within Antwerp Dental Group covering all major disciplines in dentistry, and led by Raj Wadhwani
  4. Bespoke clinical mentoring in various disciplines
  5. Development of a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate competence, skills, and leadership ability of an effective dental practitioner

Several dentists within Antwerp Dental Group are approved as educational mentors to support dentists with conditions.

Within Antwerp Dental Academy, Raj Wadhwani leads group teaching one morning per week to ensure practitioners are updated with current best practice.

The Associate with conditions has a designated mentor who is approved by the Local Area Team. The Associate maintains a log of educational activity with an online portfolio known as portfoliogen (www.portfoliogen.co.uk). The mentoring period is typically 9-12 months after which the Associate works within the practice under routine Associate agreements.

Perfomer List Validation by Experience (PLVE)

We are one of the few practices in England who run a bespoke training academy for “PLVE” Dentists. We work closely with  NHS England to discharge conditions for inclusion on the dental performers list. We do this by a similar mentoring model to Foundation Dentistry :

  1. Overall support from our Training Director, Raj Wadhwani
  2. Bespoke day to day clinical support from a designated  and approved clinical mentor
  3. A weekly training programme involving lectures and practicals from various clinicians within Antwerp Dental Group covering all major disciplines in dentistry, and led by Raj Wadhwani
  4. Bespoke clinical mentoring in various disciplines
  5. Development of a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate competence, skills, and leadership ability of an effective dental practitioner

Non-european graduated dentists who seek to achieve a performer number to enable working within the NHS in England must go through a process known as performer list validation by experience (PLVE). This is a similar arrangement to “associate with conditions”, and is organised by NHS England. NHS England require the PLVE dentist to generate a portfolio of evidence which will demonstrate compliance, clinical skills, and competence needed to be a performer in the NHS general dental services.

PLVE dentists need a mentor who has been approved by NHS England to assist the dentist update and complete this portfolio of evidence such that after the supervised period of typically 9 – 12 months, the dentist will be awarded their performer number.

Foundation Dentistry

Antwerp House Dentistry is an approved centre for Foundation Training. The lead Educational Superviser is Preeti Bose who is supported by the Practice Principal, Raj Wadhwani.

Dentists who are seeking a position in Foundation Dentistry should not apply directly, but apply for DFT via the National Recruitment Portal.
