New entry-level competencies for dental specialists

01 Jul 2016

The Board has published new entry-level competencies for dental specialists.

The Board has developed these new entry-level competencies in partnership with the Dental Council (New Zealand) (the Council).

Consultation with the Board’s stakeholders and a public consultation took place. The Board has also published a consultation report to provide a summary of the consultation process undertaken to develop these competencies.

The Board and the Council have developed these competencies to describe the entry-level of competence expected of applicants for specialist registration. These will assist in ensuring the consistent and transparent assessment of specialist registration applications from overseas-qualified dental specialists.

For more information on these competencies and the consultation report, see our Specialist competencies page.
