Dental Volunteer

This volunteer role supports the Dental HealthCare Team to ensure that patients attending appointments have a positive experience, as well as assisting with admin tasks and supporting staff during the working day.

Volunteers will telephone patients prior to their appointment to confirm/encourage attendance and ask any necessary pre-screening questions. They will welcome patients attending their appointments, reassuring those who may feel apprehensive. Once the patient has had their appointment, volunteers will encourage and help patients to complete the Friends and Family Questionnaires. They may also support the team with general admin tasks.

This is a fulfilling role where you can meet new people, gain experience of an NHS environment, help patients in a clinical setting and learn new skills along the way.

If you’re over 18 years of age, feel passionate about ensuring our patients have a positive experience, and you’re able to:

  • commit to 3.5 hours per week (9-12.30pm or 12.30-4pm), with the option for more hours if desired
  • commit to 6 months of volunteering after recruitment checks have been completed

..then we would encourage you to apply!

Training & support is provided throughout your volunteering experience.
