Recency of Practice

Recency of Practice and Return to Practice

The Dental Board of Australia (the Board) has developed a registration standard on recency of practice (the standard) under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (the National Law) as in force in each state and territory.

The standard sets out the Board’s minimum requirements for recency of practice for dental practitioners. It is available below and on the Registration Standards page of the Board’s website.

Recency of practice means that a dental practitioner has maintained an adequate connection with, and recent practice in the profession since qualifying for, or obtaining registration.
