Online applications

Online applications for general registration as a dental practitioner are available to:

  • final-year students that are due to complete within the next twelve weeks an Australian-approved program of study, or
  • graduates who have completed an Australian-approved program of study within the last 12 months, or
  • Dental practitioners who hold a current annual practising certificate with the Dental Council New Zealand and who are applying for registration in Australia under the provisions of the Trans Tasman Mutual Recognition Act.

For all other circumstances, please use the relevant downloadable form below.

Renewal of registration

General, specialist or non-practising registration

Online application for renewal of registration opens six to eight weeks before your registration expires. Ahpra will send you a reminder when your registration is due. Look for this as confirmation that online renewal is open.

If you do not renew your general, specialist or non-practising registration by 30 November each year, or within the following one-month late period, your registration will lapse in accordance with the National Law and your name will be removed from the national register of practitioners.

Limited registration

We no longer send hardcopy forms in the mail.

We will send you an email reminding you to renew three to four months before your registration expires.

To renew your limited registration, download the relevant form from the Ahpra provisional and limited registration page, complete it and send it back to us online.
