License to practice dentistry issued by a dentist from a third country

Service Description

In order to be able to work as a dentist in Germany, you need the Approbation. The Approbation is the state admission to the profession. Approbation is necessary because the profession is regulated in Germany. This means that you are not allowed to work independently as a dentist without an Approbation.

You can also obtain an Approbation in Germany with a professional qualification from a so-called third country. Third countries are all countries that do not belong to the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland.

Approbation will be granted by the competent body if your dental training is equivalent to German training. The equivalence is checked in the recognition procedure.

You must also fulfill other requirements for the granting of the license to practice dentistry. For example, you must be suitable in terms of health and have the necessary language skills.

If your professional qualification comes from the EU, the EEA or Switzerland, other regulations apply.

You can also submit the application for the procedure from abroad.
