We have great news for Dentists wishing to find a job and emigrate to Australia!
Are you a graduate from a Dental program in Canada, Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Africa, Singapore or the US? Then you may be eligible to participate in the Public Sector Dental Workforce Scheme (PSDWS).
Under this new scheme, PSDWS, those eligible will be granted exemption from the Australian Dental Council (ADC) Preliminary Examination, and a form of "restricted registration" that means that you can practise Dentistry in the public sector in Australia, for a period of up to three years.
The PSDWS requires the participants of the scheme to sit the ADC Final Clinical Examination within that three year period.
Isn't that exciting news?
This means that if you are a Dentist from one of the countries listed above, you may be able to emigrate to Australia much quicker and easier, and only worry about the exams down the track.
Once you have completed your exams, you then have the option of working in the private sector in Australia as a Dentist.
Further - normally the State or Territory that you are practising Dentistry in in Australia, is responsible for carrying the fee involved in sitting the Final Clinical Examination with ADC in Australia. So you are likely to not have to pay the fee of sitting the Australian Dental Council exams!
