Dental - Australia

Each Australian State and Territory has separate legislation covering the recognition of dental qualifications.

To practice dentistry you have to be registered with the local State or Territory Dental Board.

Before you can start working as a Dentist, you need to complete two separate processes.

The first step is Recognition of your Overseas Dental Qualification by the Australian Dental Council. The second step is Registration with the State Dental Board.

Recognition is the first step and common to all Overseas Trained Dentist. Registration is applicable only to the Overseas Trained Dentist whose qualification has already been recognized by Australian Dental Council and who is going to work in a place that is within the jurisdiction of the Dental Registration Board.

Generally if you are registered with one State Dental Board, you can practice freely in the other states. But, rules and regulations always change. So, you must always contact the respective State Dental Board for current procedures.

If you hold a Non- Australian qualification in Dentistry and want to enter the profession in Australia, then you have three options.
(1) by enrolling at an Australian dental school where you may be granted some credit for previous study
(2) by immediate recognition of your existing qualifications
(3) by successfully completing the Australian Dental Council (ADC) examinations.

The ADC examination procedures have been developed specifically to assess the qualifications of overseas trained dentists whose qualifications are not accepted as a basis for registration by Australian Dental Boards.
