What we are looking for

Are you looking for the next step in your career in Dental Health? Do you want to avoid the city life, and work in a position where you can meet new people and contribute to the health and wellbeing of patients in these small community based towns.

We are seeking enthusiastic and suitably qualified Dental Clinic Assistants with well-developed communication skills, who thrive working as part of a small team to deliver high quality oral healthcare, including education.

We want to mentor you in your career, whilst working in a supportive environment and learning from our senior team members.


Karratha, located 1253km north of Perth, is one of the largest and fastest growing towns in the north. Known predominantly for its contribution to the mining industry, the natural beauty here was once overlooked. Adjoining the port of Dampier you are just a hop away from the Dampier Archipelago - one of the best kept snorkelling and diving secrets with 42 islands and islets to explore in an expansive 45 km radius! If you are more comfortable on land you have fresh water swimming holes, gorges and 4WD tracks to occupy you.

It's central location also makes it the ideal base for exploring other natural delights such as the Karijini National Park, with 100 metre chasms and a 1,235-metre high mountain four billion years old. Or a walk along the Jaburara Trail to uncover the largest collection of Aboriginal rock engravings on the planet. Not to mention the proximity to the iconic Ningaloo Reef.

Karratha has all the amenities of any up and coming city, without compromising on the nature around.
