This is a part time locum post covering Maternity leave in Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB).

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic individual to join an established Special Care Dentistry team in the Community Dental Service in Gwent, South Wales. The post holder will be based in Cwmbran Clinic, although may be required to work at any of ABUHB dental premises and hospitals.
