To Reni and all the other whingers…..

The Goverment does not owe you anything....... Why should the Govt act for you?

However, if there is a shortage of dentists in Singapore, the Government will act for the benefit for the country.

I am not familar with the requirements for a dentist to practice.

Others have been helpful here. There appears to be route available even if your dentist ..

It appears that if you are really good, you may apply for the qualifying exam...

Otherwise, you have to wait for the Government to recognize more foreign degrees only if it is deemed necessary and while waiting, continue to do nothing, but complain while sitting at home

Or swallow your pride and work as a dental hygienist or dental nurse….

Or take up some other hobby…..

Really, what other choices do you have?

I meant

"even if your dental degree is not recognised in Singapore"

and I would add that "at least some others have indicated that they are willing to be dental hygienist, nurses etc."

It's all about your attitude.... and what you are willing to do.....
