Accredited Dentist in Canada

Becoming a licensed dentist in Canada – Dental Programs for Foreign Trained Dentist

La práctica de la odontología está regulada en Canadá. Para ejercer la profesión o utilizar el título de dentista o cirujano dental, debe tener una licencia como miembro de uno de los organismos reguladores provinciales / territoriales.

Los órganos provinciales y territoriales establecen los estándares para el ingreso a la profesión de odontólogo y para la emisión de licencias a quienes cumplen con los estándares establecidos de calificaciones y práctica. Una vez que sepa dónde se instalará y trabajará, debe comunicarse con el organismo regulador provincial o territorial correspondiente para obtener información sobre los procedimientos de licencia en esa área.

Muchas jurisdicciones requieren que se complete con éxito el Examen Nacional de Especialidad Dental (NDSE) para obtener la licencia como Especialista. Este examen lo administra actualmente el Royal College of Dentists of Canada (RCDC).

There are different pathways to licensure depending on where you obtain your dental degree.

If you are Graduating from an accredited dental program, the steps are:
