Apply for recognition of your dental diplomas in Belgium

In recent years, it has become considerably easier to work in another country. Still, there is quite an amount of bureaucracy you have to deal with before the road from your home country to a job in Belgium is cleared.

Have you not yet registered your dental diploma and X-ray certificate in Belgium? Start the procedure now. It may take several months before all the formalities - to be able to practice your profession in Belgium - are fulfilled. 

  • Please contact:

Service public fédéral Santé publique, Sécurité de la Chaîne alimentaire et Environnement
DG2 - Service agrément des professionnels des soins de santé
Place Victor Horta, 40 (boîte 10) - Bureau 02D283
1060 Bruxelles

After recognition of your foreign diploma you are able to apply for a RIZIV number.

Prepare before you migrate to Belgium

  • Learn Dutch

True, most people in Flanders, Belgium can speak English, but as a dentist from abroad it is preferable that you are able to speak Dutch  After all, it is more convenient for the patient to be able to communicate in his own language while receiving treatment.

  • Have the paper work done

As a EU healthcare professional, dentists have to be included in the RIZIV register. In some cases you have to retake an X-ray course (certificates from other countries are not accepted) and obtain liability insurance. Apart from this dentistry-related paperwork, there is also general documentation that needs to be taken care of. You will need to arrange health insurance, a house, a bank account and a social service number. Our PR manager can help you to find professionals who can help you with this.

  • Get a house

Of course, feeling at home first and foremost requires you to find a good home. You can stay for a couple of months in our own hospital accommodation flat. But, having a house of your own will improve your quality of life. A good place to start is at rent a house in Genk where you can find houses and apartments for sale and for rent (fees are monthly). Most dentists in Flanders will buy or build a house to their own taste.

  • Find a school

If you're moving to Belgium with children, you'll find a wide choice of well-developed international schools, particularly in Brussels, where international families can choose from British, American or International curriculums and certification taught in English and most other world languages. The nearest international school - The United World College Maastricht - is at 20 km from Genk only.
