The mission of AIDS Services of Austin (ASA) is to enhance the health and well-being of the community and people affected by HIV and AIDS. We recently established a patient-centered medical home providing life-affirming HIV, PrEP, and primary care for at-risk persons in Central Texas. The Jack Sansing Dental Clinic provides dental care to 1,500 patients annually and has access to ASA's expanded medical clinic and complement of social services.

ASA is seeking a friendly, energetic Staff Dentist to join the team at the state-of-the-art Jack Sansing Dental Clinic to support our mission by providing quality, patient-centered, and compassionate dental care for a culturally diverse patient population from the Central Texas region. Under the direction of the Clinical Director and Lead Dentist, the Staff Dentist provides direct patient care as part of a collaborative team effort to deliver comprehensive dental treatment to support patients' overall health and well-being. General dentistry done at the Dental Clinic includes but is not limited to: treatment planning, oral examinations and oral cancer screenings, restorative, removable, endodontics, oral surgery, and triage of emergency patients. The Staff Dentist is mainly focused on the clinical aspects of ASA's Oral Health Care services, but will also supervise activities of ancillary staff as needed, delegating duties outlined by the State Board.
