Dentist, full-time

*Dentist, full-time

Reports To: Director of Dental Programs

Position Summary: Cass County Dental Clinic is looking for a motivated, compassionate, full-time dentist to join our team in May 2024! Cass County Dental Clinic is a non-profit dental clinic committed to providing high-quality dental care for children ages 0-20 years old and pregnant women. We are located just south of Kansas City, Missouri. Help us make a positive impact for the kids and families we serve!

Hours and Location: The full-time dentist will work Tuesday – Friday from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. at the Belton clinic. The full-time dentist may be offered additional shifts on Mondays to cover for another dentist. The dentist may be asked to provide coverage at the Harrisonville clinic, if needed.

The dentist will provide dental services while patients are under general anesthesia on a schedule established by the clinic that aligns with the dentist’s regularly scheduled days or after consultation with the dentist on a regular day off. All services under sedation will be provided in Belton. Sedation hours are based on a schedule determined by the anesthesiology group, and patients are seen consecutively with no scheduled breaks.

Requirements: The right candidate is dependable, confident, empathetic, and comfortable working on children and teens. The dentist must be able to communicate well with both young patients and parents/guardians to ensure successful visits. Experience with SDF, GI restorations, Hall crown technique, and NuSmile zirconia crowns is preferred, but training can be provided. The dentist will provide dental services on children under general anesthesia 1-2 times per month on-site using a mobile anesthesia team.

Ideally, the dentist will be confident in a wide range of skills, including permanent extractions, root canals, and crowns to reduce need for referrals. Referral relationships are in place, but are limited due to a lack of specialists who accept Missouri Medicaid.

Benefits: The position includes health, dental, and vision insurance; SIMPLE IRA with 3% employer match, paid holidays, PTO, CE budget, malpractice insurance, and $25,000 student loan stipend with contract.
