Job description

Nau mai, haere mai ki Ūpoko ki te uru hauora.

Location: Wellington

Contract: Permanent, Part time (32.4 hours per week)

ABOUT THE ROLE

The Oral Medicine Specialist (OMS) will provide diagnostic and clinical management of patients with chronic and medically-related disorders of the oral and maxillofacial region in accordance with service specifications and scope of practice. Support is provided by dental house-surgeons, senior dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons. It is expected that the OMS will develop service pathways and develop strong links with relevant medical and surgical specialities. This role is essential as part of the provision to cancer services especially head and neck. This position does not have an on call component.

ABOUT THE SERVICE

The Dental & Oral Health Service provides hospital-based oral health and dental services concerned with maintaining or restoring to function, the hard and soft tissues of the mouth and its supporting and associated structures. In particular those areas affected by major trauma, infection, developmental anomalies, pathology, or the underlying medical or psychological status of the person. The service provides clinical services which are an essential part of in-patient and outpatient hospital medical and surgical treatment. The Service also has a role in educating hospital staff in the maintenance of oral hygiene and improving oral comfort and function for in-patients. Hospital dental services play a complementary role to the services provided by private dental practitioners and school dental services, but they are not an alternative system.

The Dental & Oral Health Service is staffed by a team of clinical and non-clinical staff who provide a strong commitment to the service and demonstrate expertise in delivering care to the specialised patient group. The service has dental departments located at Wellington and Kenepuru Hospitals.
