Renewal of registration for dental practitioners due soon

Registration

The Dental Board of Australia (the Board) announced today that the 2013 renewal of registration campaign for dental practitioners is now open.


Over 19,500 dental practitioners with general, specialist or non-practising registration are due to renew their registration with the Board by 30 November.

Last year over 90 per cent of all health practitioner registration renewals due by 30 November were submitted online.

"This was a fantastic result and it shows how quick and easy online renewal is," Dental Board Chair Dr John Lockwood AM said.

Anyone who experiences difficulties using the online renewal service can phone the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) Customer Service Team on 1300 419 495 and a team member will talk them through the process.

Dr Lockwood reminded dental practitioners to carefully read the Dental Board's registration standards which specify the requirements for practice before applying for renewal of their registration.

"Make sure you understand the declarations you are required to make about meeting the Board's registration standards," he said.

"You could be asked to give information in support of your declarations so it's important to know what the requirements are for registration to practise."

AHPRA, on behalf of the Board, is sending out a series of reminders to practitioners with a registered email address.

It is important that dental practitioners make sure AHPRA has their current contact information so they don't miss future email and hard copy reminders to renew.

To update contact details using AHPRA's secure online services, dental practitioners can visit www.ahpra.gov.au:

  • go to the bottom of the home page
  • click on Update Contact Details under Services for Practitioners
  • use their user ID and secure password, and
  • follow the prompts.
