Description

Salary: $700 - $750 per diem
Job Description: Founded in April 2011, the Senior Charity Care Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for our elders in need. We assist seniors 55+ who reside in care facilities and senior apartments along the Wasatch Front and require health care services such as eyeglasses, hearing aids, and dental care. In 2015, we developed a mobile dental clinic program to help control the costs of dental care, taking the services directly to seniors. Our vision is to serve the Intermountain West. We currently assist seniors who reside in seven northern Utah Counties through various grant-funding resources. As a new Medicaid provider, we are looking forward to collaborating with the University of Utah as an affiliate to bring Medicaid services to seniors in care facilities and senior apartments in January 2020.

Our state-of-the-art mobile dental practice is searching for a skilled and experienced Dentist with excellent communication skills and compassionate concerns for low-income seniors to join our professional team. The ideal candidate for this position has worked with seniors in a public health setting, is proficient in performing regular checkups and complex dental procedures and is committed to the highest quality of patient care. Those who are qualified and in search of a career to serve those who need you most through mobile dentistry are encouraged to submit an application today.
