Award coverage for dentists

No award covers dentists working for private dental practices.

They’re entitled to the national minimum wage and the National Employment Standards.

They’re not covered by:

  • the Health Services Award because there’s no classifications for dentists.
  • the Miscellaneous Award because it doesn’t cover professional employees.
