Are you an internationally qualified dentist seeking a career in the UK?

Insignia Global Partners is seeking to provide our client with a minimum of 100 dentists per year for the foreseeable future and we are super keen to hear from qualified, experienced dentists worldwide.

To practice as a dentist in the UK you must register with the General Dental Council (GDC) and the first step is to familiarise yourself with the Overseas Registration Exam (ORE).

What is the ORE?

The ORE is an exam that overseas qualified dentists have to pass in order to register with the GDC. Registration allows dentists to practise unsupervised in the UK.

The ORE tests the clinical skills and knowledge of dentists whose qualifications are not recognised in the UK. Candidates are expected to meet or exceed the standard of a ‘just passed’ UK BDS graduate.

A candidate is expected to be able to show competence, knowledge and familiarity in the different aspects of dentistry.

Both parts of the exam are mapped to learning outcomes and a candidate could be tested on any dentistry aspects in this document.

The exam uses modern assessment methods to ensure a robust and consistent exam. The exam has two parts.

Part 1 is a written exam designed to test application of knowledge to clinical practice

Part 2 is a clinical exam designed to demonstrate practical clinical skills
