hi, I am a dentist from India, going to live with my husband from august in Jyväskylä, Finland. I would like to know about the job opportunities for overseas dentists in Finland, I hold an Indian Bachelor's degree in dentistry with almost 6 yrs of experience.

I have no real information about this but one dentist who treated me in the local health centre was a foreigner. I dealt with him in English but judging by his interaction with the dental nurse he spoke little or no Finnish. So it seems it is possible. I also understand there is a shortage of dentists, especially in smaller places, but I don't know about Jyväskylä specifically.

You have a non-EU degree, so you have to pass the qualifications, also the Finnish language. So the short answer is "no".
The long answer is in the link of the above post.

(DMC - The light shines out of EU arse, so they do not have to pass as rigorous or language requirements)

Maybe so. I would have guessed the dentist I had was from the middle east, but who knows what his nationality really was or what papers he had.

My dentist is British. But he speaks very good Finnish. It is sooooo nice to have a reassuring, friendly, chatty dentist who can explain orthodontic ordeals in all the gruesome detail :thumbsup:

Hi,
I'm a dentist too and I qualified in a non eu country. If you managed to register as a dentist could you please share your experience on the forum 😇
