There are three types of Dental Registration:

a. Registration as a Dentist.

This type of registration enables a dentist to practice in New Zealand without supervision. You must gain Registration as a Dentist before you can apply for Registration as a specialist.

b. Registration as a Specialist.

After gaining Registration as a Dentist, you an apply for Registration as a Specialist in a branch of dentistry. You must satisfy the council that you have that you have the appropriate qualifications, training and experience to justify Registration as a Specialist.

c. Temporary Registration.

This is limited to one year. In some circumstances, Council may extend Temporary Registration one more year to a maximum of two years.

Temporary registration is normally granted only if you are coming to New Zealand to undergo sponsored training for a specified period of time, or to give instruction.

For further details regarding registration and examination, refer to the Document Pack put out by the Dental Council of New Zealand.
