PHS Community Services Society is hiring a Dental Hygienist.
The Portland Community Dental Clinic (PCDC), a non-profit dental clinic, provides comprehensive oral health care to individuals residing or working in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, regardless of ability to pay.
The Dental Hygienist works as a member of an interdisciplinary team that provides high-quality, comprehensive dental care to our patients, working within IPAC and COVID-19 regulations. As a member of the PCDC team, the Dental Hygienist promotes a safe, inclusive and welcoming environment, ensuring excellent customer service and care to patients in need of both emergency and preventative dental services. This position may also supervise the work of students from accredited dental hygienist programs. The Dental Hygienist works in consultation with the attending dentist, and reports to the Senior Manager of Programs.
Why work here?
PCDC is unique in its commitment to engaging and providing dental care to a population of Canadians who are often unable to access dental care due to barriers of income and/or insurance coverage. PCDC has been a part of Vancouver’s DTES for over 20 years and aims to contribute to reducing the impact of marginalization and poverty through access to oral health.
We are able to offer an excellent benefits package even though the role is part-time.
You will be a valued member of the team, working with colleagues and patients who greatly respect your input.
The Portland Community Dental Clinic is located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, in easy walking distance of Downtown, Chinatown, Gastown and the Seawall. There are good transit links – we’re a couple of blocks from the Stadium-Chinatown SkyTrain station.
