An exciting opportunity has arisen within our team for a Full-time, Permanent, Maxillofacial Prosthetist - Practitioner role.
The Laboratory team is a very busy multi-disciplinary team of seven members serving the North Yorkshire population (structure in attached JD).
The Department employs the following Consultants: 5 Maxillofacial , 2 Restorative Dentistry, 3 Orthodontic, (plus their junior staff) working across the region. The North Yorkshire MPT services are conducted on the York Hospital site, and are also extended to our ENT, Ophthalmology, Dermatology, and Plastic Surgery departments.

The Maxillofacial Prosthetist will have an interesting and varied workload consisting of a full range of silicone facial and body prostheses, obturation devices, trauma related appliances, Chondrodermatitis and keloid pressure devices. The MPT also plays a pivotal role in both clinical and technical aspects of our sleep-apnoea services. Orthognathic surgery is a major part of the workload of the department and the MPT post holder will provide both technical and clinical services in that area.
Planning is currently underway for a new extended laboratory. The improvements will also include a digital 3D rapid prototyping area. The Head & Neck directorate is determined to make York hospital a leading player in this emerging technology and the successful candidate will be expected to have some experience in this field.

Applications are invited for this post, from only qualified and GDC registered Dental Technicians who also hold a Maxillofacial post-graduate qualification. Alongside the academic qualifications, the successful candidate is expected to have experience or past employment working within the speciality of Maxillofacial Prosthetics and Technology. An Associate level of Membership of the Institute of Maxillofacial Prosthetists and Technologists is expected as a minimum, on the understanding that gaining Full Member status will be an ongoing objective.
