Any work experience you can gain before working in a Dutch clinic is always beneficial. In any case, you must demonstrate that you’re confident in performing basic treatments in general dentistry, such as check-ups, fillings, endodontics, extractions, periodontics, and simple prosthodontics. It’s essential you feel confident about this, because Dutch dental clinics expect that you will be able to perform these treatments yourself and without guidance from other colleagues. Additionally, you have theoretical knowledge of advanced treatments, so you will be able to perform those treatments when you’re ready for it.
In any case, as part of the selection process, we will invite you to a dental assessment with one of our dental colleagues, who will check your work experience and knowledge in dentistry. They will evaluatie if you’re ready to start working in a Dutch clinic.
If you have any further questions about this, you can always contact Arjen (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he’ll happy to help you!
