EU member states.

If you are an EU national and have completed your education in this area, you need to follow this procedure to become a dentist in Denmark. 

For the first step, you have to complete the online application form. You can access the form from the Danish Patient Safety Authority website

Complete the form with your information, then approve and send it. There is also a fee for completing the form that you have to pay. The fee is DKK 1,206 to work independently and DKK 4,165 for registration of specialist qualifications.

Step 1. Gather the documents.  

Now you must gather the list of supporting documents and send them to the Danish officials; 

  • Documents of changing your nem, marriage certificate. 
  • Educational documents in the EU. 
  • EU diploma (if applicable). 
  • Certificate of good standing or Certificate of current professional status. It must state that you have permission to work as a dentist in your home country. It can not be older than 3 months ago at the time of application.

  • Certificate of completing specialist qualifications (if applicable). 
  • Certificate of conformity that you meet the training requirements. 
  • Power of attorney, if someone else is applying on your behalf, like an agent or a Danish company. 
  • Translation. If your documents are not in English or Danish, you need to have them translated into one of these languages, but you do not need translation if you apply from Sweden and Norway.
  • Identity documents and a copy of your passport: 
    • name, 
    • date of birth. 
    • Nationality.

Note; you should also make it clear where you have worked in the last 5 years. 

Note: If you do not send a translated version of your documents, you should expect a longer processing time. 

The translation must be from the university, the authority that issued the document, or a verified translation office in the heading and stamps with the address and telephone number. 

After you gather all of these documents, you have to send them electronically to the Danish officials at their email address; aaes@stps.dk. If you email the documents, you have to ensure that the quality of the scanned form of documents is good and readable. 

You can also post the documents to this postal address; 

Danish Patient Safety Authority Registration and EU Health Insurance Islands Brygge 67 2300 Copenhagen 

Note: If you send an original copy of documents, you have to prepare a copy of them as well. The copy must be in A4 format and without paper clips, folders, etc. 

You should also include a postal address in your application. The original form of documents will be sent back to your postal address. 

Step 2. Assessment of application

After you send the documents to Danish officials, they will send you an email and confirm that they have received the documents. If there is one part missing or they need further supporting documents, they notify you to submit them as well. 

It takes up to 3 months until the Danish officials complete assessing your documents. You would better submit a full and complete list of supporting documents as the officials ask for another document, as the processing time will be longer. 

The authorities will send you the result through email. If the decision is negative, they will notify you about the assessment result before they send you the final decision. 

Step 3. The results. 

After you receive the positive result, you will be registered with the Danish healthcare system. The permission to work independently as a dentist or specialist registration will appear on the online register of healthcare professionals. You, the employers, and anyone with your information can check your status on this platform. You can move to Denmark and begin your work as a dentist as the authorization permits you. You will receive your registration ID, and with other personal information, you can enter the online register of healthcare professionals. 

You do not need a visa or work permit to work in Denmark for the long term. You just need to ensure the local officials. 

Non-EU/EEA/Nordic countries.

This procedure is for three types of dentists who want to work in Denmark; 

  1. If you are a national of a non-EU/EEA country and you have finished your dental training in a non-EU/EEA country.
  2. You are a national of a non-EU/EEA country and have completed dental training in an EU/EEA country but not Denmark. 
  3. You are a national of an EU/EEA country, and you have finished your dental training in a non-EU/EEA country. The point is that you have permission to apply for registration under the special EU/EEA provisions. You can do this if you have work experience for at least 3 years in another EU/EEA country.

Step 1. Application form and supporting documents. 

Before you start gathering the documents, you need to know look at the duration of your dental education. Is it less than 5 years? If yes, you would better not apply and end the process here. Why? Because the Danish officials do not recognize your education to be equivalent to the Danish one in terms of quality and quantity, you will be rejected. 

You would better know that the duration of the dental program in Denmark is 5 years and one year of training. 

6-year rule.

You should also know about the 6-year rule. If 6 years has passed since the end of your education and the date you are applying to work in Denmark, you must have one year of work experience as a professional dentist to become eligible. If it is not so, your application will be rejected. 

If you meet the above rules, you must complete the online application form and send the printed version along with the other documents to Danish officials. You can access the application form from the Danish Patient Safety Authority website

This is the list of the supporting documents you must gather. You have to submit two copies of documents besides the original or a certified copy of the documents you submit. 

You should also follow the order of documents. The number of this order must be followed; 

  1. Identity documents, name, date of birth, and nationality, plus a certified copy of your passport’s first page. 
  2. Document of name change if you have changed your name. 
  3. The translation of the document that you have changed your name if it’s not in English. 
  4. Diploma of completing your primary education as a dentist.
  5. Your CV. It must list your qualifications and work experience in the time order you received. 
  6. Your diploma plus the translation into English/Danish if it’s not in these two languages. 
  7. Verification of degree. You have to get your educational degree verified. There is two ways to do this; 
  1. Completing this form (word) and sending it directly to the Danish Patient Safety Authority.
  2. The university or school issues a certificate that contains the same information in the word file. It must be on the university of school letterhead with the stamp of the educational institution.

Remember that the university or education center must send the certificate or diploma directly to the Danish Patient Safety Authority.

The name of the center must be on the envelope, and it must be sealed. If the certificate is not in English, the Danish Patient Safety Authority sends the certificate to you, and you have to get it translated by a verified translation office. The essential point is that the Danish officials will not accept the certificate if you, as the applicant, send it to them. 

  1. Your transcripts of the educational program. It must include; 
  • Duration of the program
  • Theoretical education: subjects and lecture hours of each subject
  • Clinical education: subjects and clinical hours of each subject
  • Number of weeks per semester

  2. Validation of registration. You must validate your registration by the competent authority in the country you have passed your training or the country you have lived most recently. It also gets called a Certificate of Current Professional Status/certificate of good standing. 

There are two ways to do this: 

  1. Complete and send this form
  2. The competent authority issues a certificate that contains the information above form. 

The relevant authority must complete and send the form or the issued certificate to the Danish Patient Safety Authority. If you, as the dentist applicant, send the form, the authorities will not accept it. 

Remember that the sent certificate must confirm that you are legally allowed to work as a dentist and that you have not broken the rules or been found guilty of a crime. It can not be older than 3 months ago, and if it is not in English, Danish officials will assess it and send it to you so you get it translated by a verified translator. 

  1. The six rules. You need documents of at least 12 months of professional work experience as a dentist. It is true if six years have passed since completing your education. The document must verify your full employment and detailed information about your daily professional tasks.

If the 6-year rule is true for you and you do not have full-time work experience, part-time work experience equivalent to 12 months will suffice as well. But the work experience must have been in the latest 6 years to the date you apply to Danish officials. 

  1. Additional information or supplementary documentation. If there are important documents that need to be assessed in your application, you have to send them. 
  2. Power of attorney if another person, including job centers, municipalities, etc., handles your application.

After you are done gathering the documents, you have to post them to this address; 

Danish Patient Safety Authority, Registration, and EU Health Insurance, Islands Brygge 67, 2300 Copenhagen.

Note; The original form of numbers 7 and 10 in the above list must always be sent. You will receive the original documents by post to your address after evaluation. 

If you send copies of your documents, you have sent a certified copy of them. It must be verified by one of these options; 

  • embassy/consulate, 
  • notary public, 
  • the police, 
  • or the authority that issued the document

The copied documents must have a stamp in English or Danish that they are verified copies of the original documents. Whoever the authority verifies the documents is, they must be accessible and identifiable by Danish officials. These items can not certify the copies of your documents; 

  • private individuals,

Step 2. Assessment of the application.

After the Danish Patient Safety Authority receives your application and documents, they will send you an email land confirm the receipt of the documents. You should also check the spam section as you might receive their email in this part. If one part is missing or the Patient Safety Authority needs further documents, they will tell you to send them, but you do not receive confirmation for this part. 

Danish officials assess your application and evaluate whether you are eligible to take the tests in the following steps. 

After completing the assessment, the Danish Patient Safety Authority informs you of the result through; 

  • An email. 
  • Danish digital mailbox, if you hold a Danish CPR number
  • A letter 

If the decision is positive, you will receive information about how to get Danish authorization and permission to work independently as a dentist. But this information is not permitted to work as a dentist. You have to follow a few other stages as well. 

If you change your address or home, you have to inform the Danish officials. If they send you a letter, you have to receive it and in case of changing address, things get complicated. 

The processing time is a bit long. For instance, the applications received in the second half of 2020 will be processed in the second quarter of 2023. 

There are two conditions that speed up the process of your application; 

  • Having a Danish CPR number.  
  • Living in Denmark and having the Danish CPR Register. 

If your CPR registration is complete, the Danish officials will prioritize your application automatically. But if they do not know that you are in Denmark, you should inform them through an email or by phoning them: +45 72 28 66 00. 

Step 3. Language test. 

At this stage, you have to pass the danish language test to become eligible for the next stages. It’s a must to pass this test and submit the certificate. Forget mastering English and working in Denmark as a dentist speaking English. You have to be proficient in Danish and submit the certificate. 

You can also take the tests before submitting your documents for registration. But it must be less than 12 months before you apply for registration. If you prove to stay in Denmark after taking the test, the 12 months rule doesn’t apply to you.

In this case, you need a medical certificate from your own doctor. It must contain the doctor’s stamp and provider ID. You have to send it to the officials no less than three days after getting sick. 

Remember that if there are not enough applicants for the test, the Danish Patient Safety Authority might cancel the test, and you will have to take it at another time.

There are various options for your nationality. If you are an EU national, you do not need a residence permit and visa to enter and stay in Denmark. 

If you are a non-EU national but are a member of the visa-waived countries, you can stay in Denmark with your passport for 90 days but not longer. 

If you are a non-EU national but are not among the visa-waived countries, you need a visitor or tourist visa to enter the country and complete the procedures. It only allows you to stay in Denmark for 90 days, and you have to leave the country before visa expiry. 

Due to residency rules, it could cost you a lot of money to visit and leave Denmark. There is another way as well, and it is a residency for authorization. 

It permits you to stay in Denmark for the long term and receive authorization from Danish officials to become a dentist in Denmark. This permit is just to live in Denmark, learn the language, pass the language tests and the dental test and the educational course that is required for dentists. It doesn’t grant you permission to work. If you want to work, you need a separate work permit. Also, you must have enough money to cover your expenses in Denmark during your stay.
