They need to pass enlgish test (if not from G7 country and inida is not a g7), have a basic dental degree (bachelor) and two year work experience outside of degree internship, test negative to hep B and pass MDS test part 1.

The poster says NUS does not accept the degree but the requirements are basic bachelor dental degree, maybe they only did diploma? Can you provide more infromation as to why your degree was rejected?

Also do you guys just go to another country on a social pass and then hope to get work? Whats your actual strategy?

It would also depend on whether or not Singapore even recognizes their degree. What what I know, in the past a couple of years ago, there were only 150 medical degrees were acceptable in Singapore. It may have gone up since then, but I would imagine that the number of dental degrees would be substantially less.

wow, so many Doctors!

i see what you guys means now. i almost thought indian dentists practicing in singapore were being retrenched en masse and not being able to find a job.

btw, i do not recommend going into a foreign COUNTRY on social pass with all your academic and work papers... you might get tossed out if you get searched by an immigration officer and be denied entry/visa for a period of time.

most developed countries have a (more or less) functional online skilled migrant application system. that is what you should do if you are confident your qualification will be recognized.

wouldn't it be easier/cheaper to obtain post-grad qualification in your home country before flying out?

BDS degree from India

Postby bheema » Thu, 26 Nov 2009 7:57 am

So there is no way one can apply for MDS in singapore with a indian BDS degree?

Are there any options for Indian BDS in singapore.

I think the ASEAN is passing an agreement for ASEAN countries to have dentists practice without needing the certification from other ASEAN countries.
i just dont know if its in effect. anyone heard of this?

Singapore, like Myanmar, will play by Asean rules only if it's convenient for Singapore. Otherwise, they will claim that other countries are interfering in Singapore's affairs.

That is also the same problem with all ASEAN Countries, hence very slow headway, also in harmonisation of trade. Appears to be tit for tat policy,
for example the health promotion board logo, is not accepted in other ASEAN countries and must be taken off the product for Malaysia market.

Can start a free check up camps in places like Hare Ram Hare Krishna. No medical prescriptions. i think that would be legal.
