Colosseum-Dental_Moving-to-the-UK_Web-Banners.jpgUnderstanding private and NHS dentistry in the UK

The National Health Service (NHS) launched in 1948 and is the world’s largest publicly funded health service. Its principles mean that anyone residing in the UK is eligible for NHS treatment. This means that healthcare is essentially free, though there are exceptions, including dentistry.

The majority of dental patients need to pay something for their treatment. This may be the cost of a basic NHS treatment, or depending on the procedure, patients can pay more to upgrade for private treatments.
For example, an amalgam filling is available at a set NHS price, but a tooth-coloured option is also offered for an additional cost.

Dentists in the UK are self-employed and many provide both NHS and private treatments, as is the case with our dentists. Colosseum Dental also offers a wider range of treatment options than those funded by the NHS, giving our patients more choice and enabling our dentists to maximise their earning potential.

Modern, well-equipped environments

When you join, you’ll work in one of our newly refurbished, state-of-the-art clinics. We commit to continual investment in our dental clinics to reflect the rapid changes in dental care, driven by research and technological advancements. This means our clinics are contemporary, reflect industry changes and provide our dentists the best environment to operate in. We have recently spent around £10 million in refurbishing our practices and they look absolutely stunning. 

Training and Continuing Professional Development

At Colosseum Dental, we also place great emphasis on your Continuing Professional Development (CPD). We have a structured approach as part of our training academy which will help maintain and update your skills and knowledge, enabling you to provide excellent quality care for your patients.

The General Dental Council has certain requirements of dentists including the completion of CPD hours. To help meet these requirements, we will support you with regular training events, including “Lunch and Learn” and peer-led training sessions. After you’ve been with us for 3 years and have gained the required NHS experience, we’ll encourage and support you to specialise in a field of your choice, if this is your preference.

Attractive earning potential

As a new dentist in the UK ‘depending on your experience’ you can expect to earn around £3/5000 per month, for NHS and private treatments* There is great potential to increase your income throughout the year and we find this is particularly rewarding ‘both financially and clinically’ when you offer patient continuity. You’ll also have further opportunity to grow your earnings both in the UK and abroad in one of the eight countries we also operate in, if this is what you want to do.

Moving to the UK

We understand starting a new life, in a new country, is exciting but there’s also a lot to consider. Rest assured we’ve supported many dentists with their families in embarking on a new life in the UK and when you join Colosseum Dental, we’re here to guide and help you at every step of the way.

We'll support you through the application process and relocation, then once you're with us, we'll invite you to an induction course to become familiar with the NHS and UK systems and stakeholders. As part of your inclusion process it is very likely that the LAT will expect you to work under the guidance of a mentor, this is because you are new to working under the NHS system. Not only will we will provide you with a mentor but we will also support you in obtaining your performer number from start to finish.

“Moving from Spain to the UK was daunting, but from day one all my colleagues have helped me to adapt and feel right at home. I was attracted to Colosseum’s dentist-focused approach to business and courses they provide, but I’ve found the best part of the job is my practice team.”
