Has there ever been a better time to consider practicing as a dentist in Australia?


Has there ever been a better time to consider practicing as a dentist in Australia?

With the GDC’s oversight of the dental industry, a widespread disconnect between the NHS and dentists, budget restrictions, and a slowing economy, NHS dentistry is undeniably in disarray. Not to mention a conveniently timed departure of the CDO. As we write this in May 2023, there are many reasons you may consider spending time living and working outside of the UK.

On the other side, Australia has a growing economy, an ambition to significantly increase the population, huge deposits of natural resources, and a general shortage of dentists. The land is plentiful for development and infrastructure projects, plus, the weather’s pretty good too!

As we come into June 2023, changes to the Working Holiday and Long Stay Visas have been announced. Respectively, the updates include increasing the age limit to 35 and speeding up the application process to ease the process of permanent residency. While details are yet to emerge, it appears that the visa process will be more applicant friendly, less demanding on the employer/business/practice, and quicker to process. As soon as our expert migration agents have read the small print, we will be hosting webinars to discuss these changes.
