Dental specialist assessment

Assessment for dental specialist registration

The Australian Dental Council (ADC) does not assess the knowledge, judgement of clinical skills, or professional competency of overseas trained dental specialists seeking to register as a dental specialist in Australia. This assessment is administered by the Dental Board of Australia (DBA). 

In some cases, you may need to successfully complete a general dentist assessment before you can apply for specialist registration. For more information regarding this process, visit the dentist assessments page. 

Assessment for migration

The Department of Home Affairs may require some overseas trained dental specialists to undertake a skills assessment as a requirement of their visa application. Further information relating to skills assessments can be found on the skills assessment page
