Answer :

I am writing a brief about the DOH dentists exam, Hope this post will help all the dentists looking to work in Dubai
To practice by Yourself you need to be an MDS with minimum 2 years experience. If you are a BDS, you can only be an assistant to an MDS. There is only Viva in DOH exam and successfull pass is required to work in dubai. (with DOH you are allowed only to work in Dubai).

Get your main certificates attested by UAE Embassy Delhi before the interview. Take an appointment date for interview from DOH and appear with your original attested certificates. Results will be published online in 2-3 days. You can come on a visit visa and can do the doh exam in dubai

You can also apply directly by yourself in DOHMS website. I will mention the contact details at the end. Another possibility is geting a sponser from Dubai and thy can take an appointment for you from DOH like polyclinic or small dental clinics.
