But how to work in Dubai as a Certified & Licensed Dentist

Regulations by Health Regulatory Department(HRD) & Dubai Health Authority (DHA)

Over time, the Health Regulatory Department (HRD) has become very stringent in allowing foreign dental or other health professionals to work in UAE. There is a meticulous and detailed evaluation process followed by assessment exams before any health professional is allowed to work in UAE.

Everything is evaluated – your career credentials, degree certificates, your clinical work experience, on-site evaluation of your clinical work status, passport, Visa and other details. Applying for the License to work in one of the Emirates of UAE is a long process. It also involves payment of charges at various stages of the application.

Hence, you need to have a clear-cut understanding of the License applying process. You also need to specifically understand the applying process for each of the Emirates.

For example, the Licensing Exam for Dubai is separate to Licensing of Abu-Dhabi.

If you qualify for Abu-Dhabi, it does not mean you automatically qualify to work in Dubai.

Basic points to understand before you start applying for Working License in UAE

There are 3 different Health Boards function in UAE and the Emirates in UAE are grouped under the 3 separate boards. You need to qualify the assessment and evaluation from the Board to get the license to work in the Emirate under its governance.

For Dubai: 
Dubai – For which you have to appear DHA exam and then you can practice only in Dubai and not anywhere else.
For Abu Dhabi & Al Ain:
Abu Dhabi and Al Ain –  For which you have to appear for HAAD exam and then you can practice in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain only.
For Sharjah and rest: 
Fujairah, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Ajman – You have to appear for MOH, and then you can practice only in the above mentioned 4  emirates only.

So think about which emirate you wish to practice and then accordingly prepare for the exam and the process. Each examination has its own site and you have to go through a meticulous process to get selected.

Hence, by now you are clear that to work in Dubai as a qualified health professional (or a Dentist, Dental Specialist, Dental Support Staff) you would need to successfully qualify the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) Licensing Exam.
