Foreign Dentists  أطباء الأسنان الأجانب 

For a foreign dentist to have their diploma recognized in the Netherlands, they typically need to go through a process known as "recognition of professional qualifications" (erkenning van beroepskwalificaties). Here are the general steps involved:

Check Eligibility: The first step is to ensure that the foreign dentist's qualifications meet the requirements set by the Dutch authorities. This may involve verifying that their dental degree is from an accredited institution and meets the standards established by the Dutch dental regulatory body.
Language Proficiency: Proficiency in the Dutch language is usually required for practicing dentistry in the Netherlands. Foreign dentists may need to demonstrate their language skills by passing language proficiency exams such as the NT2 (Dutch as a Second Language) or the Staatsexamen NT2. We strongly recommend to get the B2 level.
Registration with BIG Register: The BIG Register (Beroepen in de Individuele Gezondheidszorg) is a national register in the Netherlands for healthcare professionals, including dentists. Foreign dentists must apply for registration with the BIG Register, which involves submitting their qualifications and other relevant documents for assessment.
Assessment of Qualifications: The Dutch authorities will assess the foreign dentist's qualifications to determine if they are equivalent to Dutch standards. This assessment may involve reviewing the curriculum, clinical experience, and any additional training or qualifications obtained by the dentist. Known as the BI (beroeps inhoudelijke) exam.
Additional Training or Examinations: Depending on the outcome of the qualification assessment, the foreign dentist may be required to undergo additional training or examinations to fill any gaps in their education or experience. This could include completing a period of supervised practice or passing specific competency exams.
Conditional Registration: In some cases, foreign dentists may be granted conditional registration, allowing them to practice under certain conditions or restrictions until they meet all the requirements for full registration.
Continuing Professional Development: Once registered, dentists in the Netherlands are required to engage in continuing professional development (CPD) activities to maintain their registration and stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the field of dentistry.
It's important for foreign dentists interested in practicing in the Netherlands to contact the relevant authorities, such as the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (Ministerie van Volksgezondheid, Welzijn en Sport) or the Dutch Dental Association (Koninklijke Nederlandse Maatschappij tot bevordering der Tandheelkunde - KNMT), for detailed guidance on the recognition process and specific requirements you can contact Madevo B.V. It will be our pleasure to guide you thru this process.
