Brighouse based private dental practice, Town Hall Dental, have announced they are creating several new jobs in partnership with the Department of Work and Pensions as they expand their practice and range of treatments.
Town Hall Dental’s non-profit partner, Focus4Success, has worked closely with The Job Centre providing mentoring and job preparedness training for single parents. Through this work, they identified several individuals who would be suitable for work in the dental industry and have offered a role to Callie Prest who was referred by the DWP.
Based in the Old Town Hall, Brighouse, Town Hall Dental have been providing cosmetic and general dentistry for the Yorkshire area since 2012. Earlier this year, the practice announced that they had been awarded ‘Dental Practice of the Year 2019’, to go alongside similar commendations such as ‘Best Patient Care in the UK’ at the industry leading Dentistry Awards.
These commendations saw them forge a partnership with Leeds United Football Club as their official dental partner, treating the players and staff as well as bolstering their work in the community. Through their non-profit, The Town Hall Foundation, the team have been at the forefront of community work in West Yorkshire in recent months. Their activities including volunteering with the homeless in Leeds, providing oral health education in schools and trips to Calais to assist with those impacted by the refugee crisis.
The expansion will see the practice launch two new surgeries, as well as expanding their range of treatments and opening a bespoke facial aesthetics clinic for beauty treatments. On the back of this expansion, seven new jobs will be created at their Brighouse headquarters.
As a sign of Town Hall Dental’s commitment to training and upskilling their team, many of the new staff will be first time employees in the dental industry, handpicked for previous experience in care.
“For us it’s about investing in people” Town Hall Dental Practice Manager Rachel Dilley commented. “We want to help create the next generation of dental professionals, learning from the ground up with our unique approach to patient wellbeing. Callie, who was introduced to us by The Job Centre, is the perfect fit for our team, incredibly smart and passionate about care, exactly what dentistry needs”.
Callie Prest added “When I met Rachel at The Job Centre, never in a million years could I see it turning in to a full apprenticeship as a dental nurse. Being a young single mother with no qualifications in the industry, I feel like I have been given an amazing opportunity to have my dream job. I already feel like part of the family at Town Hall Dental, and couldn’t ask for a better place to work.”
