| Nationwide Children's Hospital seeks clinically-oriented and compassionate pediatric dentists to join our expanding and nationally renowned Division of Dentistry. |
The pediatric dental attendings will be responsible for providing direct patient care in multiple clinical settings with an emphasis on treating children and adolescents in our newly constructed and interprofessional ambulatory care center on the hospital campus. Opportunities for dedicated time for scholarly activities and professional development are available.
Qualified candidates must possess a DDS/DMD degree or international equivalent; a certificate from a CODA-accredited advanced education program in pediatric dentistry; Board certification/eligibility by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and be eligible for a dental license in the State of Ohio. The position offers a competitive salary and excellent benefits package.
The successful candidates will possess strong interpersonal and communication skills, and a desire to create an environment that promotes collegiality and collaborations among members of the division and the hospital. The candidate must embrace a “One Team” philosophy that includes a genuine willingness to put the safety and needs of the child first in a culturally diverse, clinical care setting.
The Division of Dentistry at Nationwide Children's Hospital is administratively housed within the Department of Surgery and provides comprehensive oral health care for pediatric patients from infancy through adolescence. The division focuses on the care of children with medically and dentally complex conditions and needs. In May 2017, Nationwide Children’s will be opening our new dental clinic at the interprofessional Livingston Ambulatory Center. The new 17,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art-dental clinic will provide a significant increase in treatment space that will include 30 dental chairs, telehealth capabilities and new imaging equipment. In addition, specially designed operating rooms in the dental surgery center are undergoing renovations for improved access to care.
The Division of Dentistry at Nationwide Children’s is privileged to benefit from a relationship with the prestigious Ohio State University College of Dentistry. Our flagship Pediatric Dentistry Residency Program is highly respected as being a well-balanced clinical experience in all areas of pediatric dentistry with a rigorous academic focus that capitalizes on the long-term, collaborative partnership of both institutions, through this special partnership.
Nationwide Children’s is a national leader in pediatric care and is the nation’s largest free-standing pediatric healthcare networks providing wellness, preventive, diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitative care for infants, children and adolescents, as well as adult patients with congenital disease. In 2015-2016, we were recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of only 12 Honor Roll hospitals and honored in every specialty.
