The two-hour session will provide details on Westmead Hospital’s popular 12-month, full-time traineeship in dental assisting, which commences in August 2017.

The traineeship, which is run in partnership with the Dental Assistants Professional Association, will see the successful applicants undertaking a Certificate III in Dental Assisting.

Alison Webb, WSLHD Oral Health Network Education Co-ordinator said the session will provide information to help job seekers decide whether they’d like to pursue a traineeship.

“Come along and find out everything the traineeship involves - you’ll find out if you’re eligible to apply, the hours, pay and how to apply,” she said.

“This year, we’ll be selecting 12 applicants to conduct the traineeship.”

Westmead Hospital’s Centre for Oral Health provides general dental services to the population of Western Sydney Local Health District and is a state-wide specialist oral health provider for NSW.
