NDEB equivalency process

Recommended Posts

there is information on the NDEB website 
Historical pass rate for both accredited programs and equivalency process

so what I got from it is that every year there are more and more internationally trained dentists writing the NDEB and the pass rate is consistently around 50% ?

keep in mind that New Zealand has outsourced their equivalency process to NDEB.  Many internationally trained dentists also want to work in New Zealand, in hopes that they will be able to migrate to Australia via the Trans-Tasman agreement.  https://www.dcnz.org.nz/i-want-to-practise-in-new-zealand/dentists-and-dental-specialists/new-pathway-new-zealand-dentist-registration-examination/.

So in that number you see is not an entirely accurate depiction of how many are actually working in Canada.

and why are we certifying more and more dentists every year? 664 in 2010 vs 1025 in 2016

It's probably to do with the lack of dentists in Canada. 
Big cities is saturated, but smaller and rural towns there is still a lack. So getting more dentists qualified might push some of these to rural places to practice fulfilling the need. 
I have no idea tbh. it's just my speculation.

There’s no lack even in rural towns

Yeah.   There are very few towns in Canada - with a population big enough to support a dentist - that are lacking in dentist manpower.  

Even if there are some, you could easily correct that by taking a few hundred dentists from Toronto.  And Toronto would still be well over-saturated despite that.

to add to my previous post: there are people who studied in Australia (Canadian and Australian) who wrote the NDEB exam "just in case", but will never work in Canada.  Not saying the influx is insignificant, but it is difficult to know exactly how many of those that are passing the process are practicing in Canada.

Hard to judge how many people writing the exam will actually work in Canada but I think it’s pretty clear we already have too many dentists just by looking how many there are in any plaza

My boss has a couple of interesting theories as to why they've increased spots in Canadian dental schools, and have set up all these reciprocal agreements.

1. cheap labour for corporates.

2. cheap labour for public clinics.

thoughts?
