Testimony from Dr Gregory Steele (Dentist)

“This job is perfect for anyone looking to gain valuable clinical experience in a low-stress and friendly environment.  I started at the Sale hospital as a new graduate dentist from the University of Melbourne, and I have seen my skills and knowledge rapidly develop throughout the year.   This job allows me to make a meaningful impact in the community.  I would encourage anyone who is interested in oral surgery to apply, or anyone looking for a good work-life balance.  Being a public dentist is rewarding and provides a good start to your dental career”.
