NZDREX

Section 21 of the Dental Act allows suitably qualified and experienced dentists to be registered
as specialists in the branch of dentistry for which they make application.

Dentists who hold full or temporary registration with the Dental Council are eligible to be granted
specialist registration. The Council recommends to practitioners that up to two years be spent
in general practice prior to embarking on specialisation.

Currently the Dental Council has granted specialist registration in the following branches of
dentistry: restorative dentistry, prosthodontics, oral and maxillo-facial surgery; oral surgery
orthodontics; periodontics; endodontics; community dentistry; hospital dentistry; paediatric
dentistry; oral medicine and oral pathology.

Each application for specialist registration and each applicant is considered on a case by case
basis and in accordance with the provisions of the Dental Act.

In assessing each application for specialist registration Council considers the statutory
requirements of s21 of the Dental Act 1988 which states:

(1) Except as provided in section 22 of the Act, every dentist shall be entitled to be registered
as a specialist in respect of any branch of dentistry who satisfies the Council –

(a) That he or she is the holder of a qualification approved by the Council as appropriate for
registration in respect of the branch of dentistry in relation to which the application is made;
and

(b) That he or she has sufficient training and experience in that branch of dentistry to justify
registration as a specialist in respect of that branch of dentistry.

In determining whether applicants for specialist registration meet the requirements of section 21,
Council considers:

•The comparability of the qualification with the appropriate Masters degree from the University
of Otago

•The recency of the qualification

•Any training and experience in the specialist field

•Whether the applicant is practising that branch of dentistry at a specialised level

•Referees’ reports
