BGB Dentistry offers you a vacancy in a country known for its high level of dentistry: the Netherlands.

Frequently asked questions

How many years of experience do I need?
In your application, we will look at your practical experience. This does not just include regular jobs at dental clinics in your country, but also volunteer work and practical trials at your University. Of course, the more experience you have, the easier it will be for you, but there is no set minimum. Your years of experience prior to coming to the Netherlands may influence your starting salary, but even our least experienced dentists earn a salary that allows them to live comfortably in the Netherlands.
Am I required to learn Dutch?
Yes. As of January of 2017, it is required by Dutch law that every dentist who works in the Netherlands has to speak Dutch at B2 level or higher. As such, dentists who arrive here from abroad have to pass a Dutch language test in order to obtain the required registration. It is possible to work here as a dentist without this registration, but only under supervision. The BGB program includes an extensive Dutch course that helps prepare you for this mandatory language exam.
Why should I work with BGB?
Over the past decade, BGB has already helped hundreds of dentists settle in the Netherlands. We know exactly what the requirements are for working as a dentist in Holland, and how to help you meet those requirements. We also offer you the stability of a long-term contract with a good salary, as well as an experienced team comprised of 7 nationalities that is ready to assist you at all times.
